Cheap and good place to build multi time. customer service sucks but flying is good. u do a five hr check out with and instructor and then build 45 hrs with another pilot. u can pick ur own partners and fly at ur own pace. can even fly 10 hrs a day if u've the stamina. get an accurate quote for the rates when u call and stick to it. the airplanes fly good and r maintained fairly. don't expect weather radar or auto pilot working and no GPS :D. so if u want to get multi time quick and cheap thats the place. PM me if u need more....
Good luck.

ari ben

I am a former student. My experience ther was so bad I now have a lawsuit filed against Ari Ben Aviator. PM me if you want the full story, but all I can say is that Michael Cohen lied to me about everything. I left there without my ratings or hours, and a soiled pilot record. (Their staff exmainer failed me on a checkride because "I feel uncomfortable flying with a female.") I lost $12,000 at Ari Ben Aviator and am desperatly trying to get my money back. The condition of the planes? They made me train in one with a dripping magnetic compass. The condition of the "instructors?" Well, mine could not tell me the procedure for Lost Communications. The groundschool ($450.00) never even mentioned weather, approach plates, or communications with ATC. Stay as far away from Ari Ben Aviator as possible.
