Flight schools training with diamond fleet

Post by Andy »

Hi guys, I’m searching for flight schools used diamond aircraft as the training fleet. I want to take the ppl ir and CPL courses, but most of these schools r not an part141 flight school approved by FAA. Is there any recommend flight schools meet the criteria you guys kno abt? Especially in Florida or Texas, included but not limited in these two states, where the entire of year r available for flight training. Thank you so much~

Blue Line Aviation in NC. Zero to hero programs plus more tame approaches for us hobby flyers. I received PPL and instrument from them and recommend their professionalism and attention to safety. Not exclusively Diamond but 95%. Couple of Cessnas in the fleet as well. DA 40NG and DA 42NG are the trainers

Thank you mdm~
I love this school, but they have a strict assessment and pre-test, they said they r selective, and just trained limited numbers of student per year. To avoid any unconfirmed and unpredictable situation, I have to search another alternatives.
Btw, is the weather there in NC good for flight training?

Here is MyFlight in Orlando
https://www.flymyflight.com/ I'm a member and have had a great experience with them. I wanted to fly Diamond for my Instrument training and MyFlight had DA40s, DA42, and soon a DA62 and hopefully a DA50. All the DA40s I've flow are less than 2 years old and modern IFR platform. It's been easy to swap in-between aircraft as they are all the same --- even air conditioning, which I love!

My DA40NG is there to rent, so not so shameless plug. :)

Awesome CFIs though. My son trains there (now in my plane of course) and I will be as well.

If distance is not an object, I highly recommend Angel City Flyers at KLGB who train using DA40, DA42 and DA62, being a Diamond Training Brilliance Center. Cary Jones is the CFI.

Good luck!

I sent a friend to Angel City Flyers since I had such a great experience with them. Cary was the instructor and was reading his iPhone during the training flight. I won't send anyone there anymore.
