Is that a joke?

What happens after you solo?

For $2500 I hope you pay for dinner too.

after you solo you can train with us for your private, instrument ,comm etc but you will have to find your own housing , and there are no cost guarantees
we might start a guaranteed program later on for the instrument rating .
but right now we concentrate on people who just want to solo an airplane
to all those who are questioning the price of the course

#1 this is a full time course and we take in only 2 student per course
#2 we spend a lot of time with our students on an average 4-5 hrs of ground everyday plus 2 flights everyday

Or you could just spend $2500 at your local airport, stay at home, and almost get your whole private done.

You might want to focus on people that want to learn to fly safe. The FAA doesn't look kindly at pilots that "just want to learn to solo" at this day and time.

I was going to move this obvious ad to "buying and selling" but I'm having too much fun reading all of your responses! :D

Dear Mr "proflight"

Perhaps you could take this advertisement and market it on your own web site. Last time I checked this was a message board.

To all potential students: I think you could do a lot better to talk to your local FBO and do some local flying. You could get a lot of training for 2500 clams.

I wish that someone had given me the following advice:

1) Take 2500 dollars, and make a down payment on a 172N

2) Put the plane on leaseback, fly the snot out of it and let others help you pay for it

3) Save a bundle on your private and instrument

4) Trade it in on a 172RG, and do the same thing

5) Save a bundle on your commercial

Just don't get your C-172 with the -H2AD engine. You'll be kicking yourself for along time...

I with If4f...
At first, it irritated me that someone would put an ad up on this board, but given the ridiculous nature of the product that the poster is offering, it is fun to read the responses...

I'm not telling the moderators and webmasters what to do by any means, but I don't like how this outfit can post on the board and get free advertising. Let him get with Mark and pay for the ad.

I should hope the certificate is gilded in real gold after someone drops $2500 to solo. :rolleyes:

Bobbysamd,
I figured the original poster was getting what he deserved by being ripped on. Moving it would have lost this golden opportunity. I don't think the advertising he's getting is anything that's going to help his cause... quite the contrary. Let's all show prospective pilots the scam that this is.
But we'll do it on the "Buying/selling" board.

Can you believe this guy?

Let's all email him and tell him what a crock he is pushing.

Look at the profile: enrolled on the 6th, put up his advertisement on the 6th, and now this latest ad.

Probably some new CFI who has been reading all the marketing claptrap that AOPA project pilot puts out.

Maybe proflight should think about this...most, if not all, the people on here are pilots or are familiar enough to know that his "great deal" is a sham. Just my 1/2 Cents worth
