This really does not have much to do with which school is best, but more with how to build hours at maybe a reasonable cost. After or for even that matter while obtaining a PPL look for a cheap single engine, to build up your time. Find an A&P that will supervise your work. A nice 95 knot or less cruiser, no need to go any faster, slower maybe even more of an advantage. Some airframe with maybe a thousand hours or so till TBO would be ideal. Pick five or six tranangler routes and fly every day you can for three or more hours. Fly as much as you can every day. Get and your instructors ticket and let the school pay for some of your hours. The faster you log real hours, (no BIC flying) the cheaper and faster you will find that targeted right seat. When its time for multi and instrument work, cheaper to rent a simulator or aircraft.
