    Hey guys! New member here.
    I am currently a commercial student, and wanting to fly as much as possible. Outside of buying an airplane, I wanted to get advice on what some good routes are as far as airplane rental vs flight clubs, etc.

    Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

    Where are you located? If you were nearby, we could split costs and fly to make things cheaper.

    My advice is stick to your medical studies, you can fly when you're done with school. You need to be a good doctor to pay for the airplane.
