Hello all, I'm a 30-hour student who just moved from Lafayette, IN, to the Twin Cities, living on the north side of Minneapolis. My flight training is currently on pause due to a deferred medical (I applied for it over a year ago and I've been fighting with the FAA ever since, but that's a tangent I don't need to get into right now), but I'm desperately longing to get back in the air after not having flown for a few months. I'm sure you understand. My question is this: does anyone know of good flight schools nearby (MIC, FCM, SGS, 21D, etc) or have any opinions on or experience with any of them? I've done a fair amount of looking and it seems like I'd be paying significantly more per hour than I was at LAF, which is definitely difficult while also paying rent, etc, on a minimum-wage job, but I'm determined to keep flying. If anyone knows the area or can point me in the right direction, that'd be much appreciated. One thing I've learned so far in my training (and part of why I was dissatisfied with my experiences at LAF) is that I really dislike "pilot factory" style flight schools, where the entire focus is on getting to the next rating and building hours, eventually leading to airlines/commercial, etc. I felt like it wasn't teaching me what I wanted to learn. That's not to say the instruction is lacking, far from it, it's just focused significantly more on training future-thrust-lever-pushers while I'm more interested in GA flying, specifically experimental and vintage. With that in mind, I'm really hoping to find somewhere where the training is more than just the procedures needed to fly the airplane, actually learning practices to improve safety and proficiency, preferably from people who are as in love with flying small planes as I am rather than just instructors building hours and dreaming of flying large jets. If there are any schools in the area that train in tailwheel aircraft, that'd be incredible! I found a school at SYN that has a couple, but I haven't gotten a response to any emails and the 45-minute drive wouldn't exactly be easy. Anyway, I apologize for the information overload there. If anyone out there has any wisdom or advice for me, it'd be greatly appreciated. TL;DR: Does anyone know any good flight schools in/near Minneapolis? Also, new to the forum. If I'm posting in the wrong place or if this has already been answered, please let me know.
