    I have decided to move from Mississippi to Ft Worth, Tx beginning of Feb 2018. I am currently looking at 3 flight schools at Hicks Airfield (T67) - Pro Flight Academy, Meacham Intl Airport - Marcair Aviation and Ft. Worth Alliance - American Pilots Academy. Has anyone heard of these flight schools or reviews. Also looking into joining some flying clubs to stay current and to enjoy the views.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    @Aviator_VanLan — Are you seeking to fly for yourself or launch a career into the Part 121 or Part 135 world?

    There are many choices based in the DFW on your answer, some better than the three you have mentioned.

    I would wait in selecting until you’ve established yourself here and have had a chance to meet the local gang. Bryan, Rob, and myself can get you plugged in and after meeting many of us, you’ll find the right solution for your needs.

    Thanks for the advice! Hoping to eventually get CFII and hopefully join a Part 135 Operation in Dallas. I would love to meet up and talk about possible flight schools with a couple of guys. I wouldn't be able to start training for about a month after arriving in Ft. Worth.

    Currently were looking into buying a house west of I35W and north of Blue Mound, have a friend that lives over in that area.
