    Are you still active duty? You might look around for an Air Force Aero Club, many of which are 141 approved. When I instructed at Eglin, a Reserve dentist wanted to knock out an instrument rating while there during his 2 week duty. I worked with him exclusively (used his C210) and we got it done.

    Here's list of Aero Clubs, sadly not as many as there used to be:

    There are Army and Navy clubs also. At Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville they have a large club, good selection of planes, and a bunch of CFIIs. Here's their link:

    I'm part 61 (so you couldn't use the VA) and booked out through March (Plane is out of service in April). If you're not there by May, I could knock it out for you. Feedback and details at obxflight.blogspot.com obxflight.com

    My phone is over-loaded...so it would be best to shoot me an email.
