You can't go wrong with triple A.
There sim work is stationary therefore not up on jacks, outcome supposedly a much better scan rate as opposed to motion clues.
Give mike Briggs a ring and he will be more then happy to talk to you.

I went to Triple A as well, and got first time passes in both CPL and IR. Standard of training is very high, but then so is the standard that Mike wants you to be at before he puts you forward for the test. Don't expect to get through on minimum hours for the CPL unless you are a pilot genius so careful with your budget - though this goes for most schools. You'll have a good scan by the time you leave Triple A which is the most important thing when it comes to Check Rides.

I am midway through my IR at Multiflight.
Great Instructors, friendly school.
I will let you know in a few weeks how good they are...

I would recommend PAT in Bournemouth, great instructors, good aircraft, fully equipped airport and CAA examiners on site.
I did the 50h modular course for the IR 20h simulator and 30h Beech Duchess, it certainely helps to do everything from the start in a twin and was well worth the money. First time passes are common with them.
