Hi, I am wondering if anyone have any suggestions for a good flight school near Cincinnati.

I went to a 2 week summer program 4 years ago in Georgia to get some intro flight training, mostly ground school, 30 min flight sim, and 15 min real flight. I found out later that with the cost of the program, I could have got actual flight training. I love airplanes ever since I was a young boy, and I really wish I can get a license. But with the additional cost, and lack of time since going into college, that dream died until now.

I recently got a Co Op position at GE Aviation, so I moved near Evendale, Ohio. Since now I don't have homework or anything outside of work, and I somewhat got a job for 3 months, I was thinking that maybe I can at least start to work slowly toward a license.

So, anyone has any suggestion? Preferably with discount for students or GE emplolyee?

I know there's a flight school near-by call Blue Ash Aviation, but I have no idea how they are, since I just moved in couple days ago.

thanks for reading.

I can't speak to the quality or features of these, but there are flight schools at Sporty's out at the Clermont County Airport, and several at Lunken.

I have heard good things about Sporty's but that's third or fourth hand, and as always, YMMV.

Thanks, I will go check that out sometime when I get out of work.

I went to Blue Ash Airport yesterday, and there are 2 flight schools/center there.

One is Co Op Aviation, which the place is kinda old looking and small scale, but it got a welcoming feel, and the people who works there are really friendly and excited about flying.

The other one is Blue Ash Aviation, it look more professional, bigger scale, newer airplanes. But people there are pretty cold. I asked if they have a flight training program, and the guy at the desk just told point and told me to pick up a blue packet on the desk, which pretty much said nothing about the program aside from that already stated from the web site. He didn't even bother to give an introduction to the program or say anything.

So I think I pretty much rule Blue Ash Aviation out, lol.
