Default Flight Safety/King Schools

Would anyone be able to give me information on the costs for Flight Safety & King Schools from Private to CPL/Multi/IFR?
P.S. Feedback On Both Schools Are Welcome!

No, Im actually in Canada. I'm looking at all the options in the States because of cost. Someone actually recommend I check them out. I made ATP one of my option but unfortunately they do not take international students. So I'm looking into Kings Flight Schools and Flight Safety International. If the school that your going to recommend take international students, sure, I will look into it. I'm exploring all my options intil I'm ready.

I have no idea. I asked the same question, they just said they're not set up for it. I asked if they think they will in the future and they stated it clear that it is not a plan of their's and dont intend to now or the near future

Thanks rickair, their info is looking good so far. How much do you suspect it would cost me to go from private to commercial -Multi/IFR?

ATPs may not take international students becuase of the TSA background check requirements. Every time you start working on a new rating you must pass a background check. From what I understand it gets easier after you get the first one done (fingerprints required).

I'd imagine that this lends to delays when trying to do an "accellerated" program.

Ya, ATP is out of the question. I'm just searching for other choices that seem reasonable and well priced. Any thoughts on Kings? Flight Safety?
