I used to work there 3 years ago.
Its a good school, I know a few of the instructors and they seem quite switched on. MNG is a great place to train, weather is fairly benign, the runways are long and wide. probably the best local to get your training done likety split. Being north of the dividing range means the weather is 99% of the time suitable to fly.
The fact it doesnt have a tower is no prob, there will be plenty of navs into CTA and MB or EN. The fact that the training area starts literally at the runway is a huge bonus. You are only 50nm north of Essendon, controlled airspace starts about 15nm south of mangalore, so its not the middle of nowhere.
The aircraft are Warriors, Arrows and Seminoles, all old but serviceableand will do the job.
So if you can fo to MFTA.....do it.
