I just ordered the Gleim PPL software. Soon after I get started I'll be looking for a CFI close to the Wasilla area, but I have a few questions.
I hear that by far the best way to train is to buy an airplane and get trained in it. Mainly cause this forces you to make more time for flying. Also you get used to flying your own plane. However, being that I am so new to flying and basically don't really know what to look for in a plane it would make it tough. Seems to me it would be better to have a CFI already established that I might help me pick out a plane that is a decent deal and also one that he would be comfortable teaching me in. Basically since he knows what he's looking for. Am I wrong? What might you guys suggest about that plan.
Secondly are there any CFIs in the wasilla area that I could meet up with and go for an introductory flight. Then help me spend my money on a decent training plane, such as a champ or a 150 or something along those lines???
Anyway help would be greatly appreicated.
