    You won't find too many places higher than this. I paid $117 an hour for wet Skyhawk. You will find a few places higher, but most will be older trainers with hourly wets below $100. That program also had the online curriculum and management fees you might be able to avoid elsewhere.

    All of that said, the biggest variable to total cost is how many hours you take to complete. Although I paid higher fees, I did have a quick completion on my side. I owe that to a structured curriculum and taking 2-3 lessons a week so I didn't have to relearn anything.

    Fast completion is not always the best goal, many want to take a more relaxed and long term approach, which is more expensive, but the obvious benefits.

    Wow that the price probly 10-15 years ago for ppl
    you probly need more than minum. faa part 61 hours instructor rate are at least 20+ now (35 at kblm advance 45 so i think 17/hr is a little off)
    i dont think that website have been updated for a while
    if it is that cheap im going there for ppl training
