After a few months of reading the threads only, I finally signed up for the POA just now. I just had a discovery flight in KGAI about a month ago, and I am trying to find a good CFI in Montgomery county, Maryland to start a private pilot training. I have a full time job (my available times are limited) so I am not sure whether the flying school is better than the club for the instruction. I have only seen posts for "bad experiences" with the CFIs -- people with some good or normal experiences do not tend to share their stories. So your recommendation and guidance for a good CFI in my area would be really helpful. Thanks for your comments in advance.
