I'm getting ready to move to Alaska and become an Alaska State Wildlife Trooper but before the academy I need to get my PPL and need a plane to rent, borrow, or buy into a share for my Flight Training with an Instructor I have already lined up. I am looking for the most economical way to do this as I'm already spending a lot of money to get to Alaska with my wife and son, with a new daughter on the way. If anyone can help me with this I would really appreciate it. I am very committed to achieving this goal and know Alaska is the place to do it. I would even look at buying a plane outright if the price was right and the aircraft was even better. I need a good trainer at first so a Cessna 150 or similar would be fine, but open to suggestions or different aircraft also. I want to eventually open a small Air Taxi service and offer guided hunts down the road so a decent bush plane that is still a good starter is also fine. I'm a fast and well rounded learner so I can handle something a little more complicated and I will work as hard as I have to so that I can learn with it but still use it for making a living and having some fun on the side. Thank you very much I look forward to any help you are willing to provide. God Bless America, and Merry Christmas!
