For any CFI that wants to chime in.
Would you prefer a student with ZERO flying experience, and be able to start with a clean slate, no bad habits, and no book knowledge. Or....
A student that has flown before, has the required book knowledge (possibly passed the written) and needs to get the flying skills, dual/solo time etc.
Here's my situation. I took lessons years ago, it was actually a class in my high school. We had to split time between all the students and the one instructor. So in 3 years, I amassed around 41-42 hours of dual, with .7hrs solo time in the pattern. I took and passed the written exam at the time 1991-1992.
I joined to military after school and never flew again. I look at my logbook to this day and kick myself. 20 solo hrs and I would have been done. I know that I need to do a lot of ready to get back up to speed on the rules, airspace, weather, etc... retake the written, and get back in the cockpit.
What recommendations would you give me. Where should I start.
1) Find an instructor, get in the cockpit and study the ground school stuff somewhere in there.
2) Get something like the Sporty's Learn To Fly Course, and start flying after taking an passing the written.
3) something else.
I hope this makes sense and I look forward to some input. Also if there is anyone that can recommend a school or instructor in the Central Oregon Coast area that would be great. I live in Myrtle Point, Oregon.
Thanks again and I look forward to any responses.
