Here's the back story. About 10-12 years ago I started flight lessons and got to my first solo but then had to stop because of financial and career issues. Over the past 10 years I have tried once more to start lessons but between my 1st child being born and the school closing down things just didn't pan out.
Now with the advent of the LSA license I find myself intrigued by what it has to offer but am struggling to find an instructor or FBO that fits my needs. Most I've visited have very expensive hourly rates for the newer fancy glass cockpit LSAs and tell me I should just focus getting my PPL right out of the gate. I just want to putt around on nice days so I feel the LSA is a good fit and would like to use that time to eventually build towards a PPL rating. I'm looking for a good instructor that is focused on training folks in a fashion that is conducive to them getting a license and not just renting planes and collecting an hourly rate. Anybody got a suggestion? I'm located in the Fairfield/Vacaville area but can/will travel for the right situation.
