Ive completed Mod1 ground school and Im working my way through Mod2. The question is, should I do my CPL flying here or US/SA. As I only want to instruct at this stage I not looking at doing IR. does anyone know of any schools outside of UK that wont rip me off. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Dean,

I suggest you start by doing some research - the CAA's website contains a list of all approved schools, and what each one is approved for. I think you'll find there is nowhere in SA to do a CPL any more - the only one there was has now lost its approval.

As to what you should do - well, that depends what you want. Would it screw up your plans if you had some weather cancellations? Could you handle being away from your family for a month or two? Is saving a few quid more important than anything else? You have to give us some clues here! If there was only one answer that worked for everyone, there'd only be one school! :)
