    Hi all...

    Im selling my IT consulting business and looking to acquire a Flight School in South Florida.

    I'm an ATP flying my own light aircraft (B76, B55, B58, B60) over the past 20 years and I am a current Board Member at a large flight school so Im familiar with the business.

    I would like to get something with 75-150 students so there is enough cash-flow to upgrade airplanes, get a Redbird Simulator, etc.

    Anybody heard about anything like this on the market or possibly up-coming?

    Thanks
    Richard

    If you're gonna go bar, just go all the way with a nice nudie bar. That's money well invested.

    Good idea but we already got plenty of those in Ft Lauderdale. You'd be hard pressed to beat Solid Gold.

    You might be able to just inquire at each airport about the on field schools and see if there are any that might be in need of new management. Are you looking for Part 61, 141, both, or doesn't matter?

    This appears to be a 4 year old thread resurrected today by a post which I cannot understand...

    Damn it. I'm usually pretty good and noticing the dates on a necro thread and not responding to one just because someone else revived it. But yeah, the post that brought it back was odd.

    No. He put the money in a pile and lit it on fire. Still came out ahead vs. purchasing a flight school.
