    Similarly, KFXE, KHWO, KPMP all have schools that you might like better. I can give you some names. I am not familiar with KOPF.

    Apparently, any knight could raise someone to knighthood back in the day but it was not often done. At least that is what Mr. Google thinks.

    There is the "real world" way that things work and the FAA/PTS/ DPE way that things work.

    From experience, very rarely have I ever seen the two mix.

    I just had the mental picture of someone kneeling and being tapped on the shoulders with an E6B...

    I'm a little late to the conversation, but what you're experiencing is common across the industry right now. Pilot training is booming. It's an inevitable consequence that the instructor ranks are in constant upheaval as a result. I wouldn't take it too personally. It's challenging to find an instructor who's ready to make a given client a top (or only) priority.

    Learn what you can, from whom you can, when you can. Keep it organized within your own system. You're your own "chief pilot" in your path towards your aviation goals.

    Good luck,

    UPDATE: Finally got a text from the instructor and he got me back in the schedule.
    Had my first lesson in over a month this morning. He was uncomfortable at first and apologized for the lack of communication. I appreciated the effort to clear the air. He will work with me and possibly another instructor to get this finished. I'm hopeful I can get it done.

    Thanks all for your 2 cents.
