Hello all, I am new to the forum and wanted to get some feedback and an advise on buying my own Cessna for my training!!! I live in GA and wanted to save on the big ticket flight school price and the the 15 years school loan pay back. I am considering buying a middle of the road Cessna 172 or 152 (35K) on a loan through AOPA and pay out of pocket for insurance, fuel, and an instructor (my estimate around 25K). I am planning to fly everyday and finish my training till I get to commercial and will rent for the remaining hrs. What are the challenges? I know planning may look good on paper but quite different in real life. Just need an advise or prior experience on taking that route to complete training. Also is that route will make me less desirable to get hired by the major airlines since I completed my training not through a certified school??? Thank you so much for any feedback.I appreciate your input on my decision.
