Hello Everyone, I live in the bush along the Yukon River. (Not in a community) I have a small lodge business out here and my wife commutes to the slope for work. I had to abandon earning my PP license about ten years ago due to financial priorities. We've decided that the time has come to get back on the horse and finish my PP with the goal of ultimately getting a taildragger endorsement and float rating. To get to the point, assuming you're going to be purchasing a plane anyway, is it more cost affective to purchase an aircraft and do your instruction in it, or pay to use the schools aircraft and purchase your own later. From what I've seen searching around, there is at least $100 an hour difference between the costs of per hour instruction with just an instructor and per hour with an instructor and aircraft. Looking at an average of around 50 to 60 hours to get the PP license that's a pretty good chunk of change that could go towards the purchase of an aircraft. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
