Flight Instructor

Is it advisable to have more than one flight instructor especially when one has covered the basics of flight and maneuvres if one is under time constraints?

    It has issues. However – if both flight instructors are coordinating with each other and you are using a detailed syllabus it’s certainly possible.
    In the end though, only one flight instructor will sign you off for solo (well I guess they both could) and the instructor who signs you off for solo will have to have satified themselves that you have met (and they have observed) all the requirements. Same for cross-country and eventually the checkride.
    Bottom line – it will almost certainly cost you more money – but time is money, so if time is more important to you it could be done.

    Matthew is right, it does have issues. Even despite regulations, accepted practices, and standardization, aviation is a world of differing opinions, which sometimes leads to further confusion and costing you money. If you are flexible in your learning and can adapt as a chameleon, you should have no problems.
