Flight Safety in Vero Beach is excellent.
Let me ask you, though - How do you expect to get an ATP with this little experience?

I intended to return to the uk with 90 to 100 hours.Then to commence the written atpl course in july.
I.M. - Notice he said atpl, not atp . . . requirements to take atpl written exams in the UK are different from atp requirements in the states.
Kennyboy - there are numerous threads regarding Florida flight schools previously posted here on PPRuNe. Try using the above PPRuNe search function using words such as "Florida", "PPL", etc. and perhaps you can find the specific information that you need. I wish you all the best.

Sometimes you just need to be a little bit more assertive than the other students to ensure that you get an instructor and aircraft. Where are you at? e-mail me if you like, I may be able to be useful!
