I've got about 25 hrs as a student pilot spread out over several years. Every time I try to get back into training, I get the feeling that I'm sort of a number... a $150/hr number. It's not really the money that bothers me, it's more the attitude. I'd like to find an enthusiastic instructor that considers a student a valued customer, and takes some personal interest in the students development. I'm not asking to be pampered, but I feel a positive upbeat training environment would be a lot more fun. I'm located in Anchorage but would consider the valley. Thanks for any suggestions!
