    Where are all you guys instructing at? The only place I know of that instructs in any sort of meaningful capacity is land and sea in anchorage, I think there is a small place at lake hood with heidi and on base. there is one place in palmer but its terrible.

    Their cessnas seat slid back on me during landing and almost caused me to put the plane in the ditch on the edge of the run way, I dont know if they fixed it or not but they did not seem to motivated about fixing it (a seat sliding back is quite a bit more serious than having an ELT installed lol). Also they dont have any low expense planes like a C-150/140 tail wheel or C-152 they are all more expensive planes which run the costs of a licnece way up.

    The last thing is one of the instructors there is extremely rude and unpleasant to work with. Thoes are just my experiences going there ONCE. I have a friend who went there and another instructor told him to fly into clouds on VFR and he though he was testing him but was dead serious which is extremely dangerous.

    I am surprised they are still in buisness.
