The REAL reason for getting [a standalone] FAA PPL is that you can add an FAA IR to it.
A US IR can also be included in a foreign-based US private pilot certificate. FAA Order 8900.1, vol 5, ch2, 14 refers. FSIMS link 1, link 2.

Hi Vatir, how long did you licence took to be validated?
I am planning to go in us in February too but I didn’t receive my license verification yet ( I sent it in November )
I am wondering if I should start looking for alternatives.

Hi,
Really?

Mine came in exactly 8 days.

But then I wanted something changed and only in 2 more days it came.

Very good service from both CAA and FAA.

Maybe try giving them both a ring.

Anyone who is hour building - read the post above

That's what happens later on down the line if you don't think ahead when hour building. Night hours - they're free. It happened to me too - I could have had an FAA IR for the extra cost of an instructor. 1000 would have knocked 8,000 off my EASA training.

For how long you are planning to do this? 2 weeks?

Thanks and good luck!

Quite intensive no? If you take saturday and sunday OFF it's around 5h per day. You planned flying morning and afternoon?

I've noticed a lot of schools in Florida advertise 25 hrs per week for time building (also flying weekends).

5 hours a day should be a minimum - if you're there specifically to hour build. What would you do after lunch?

Start your next cross country flight for your next $100 burger of course.

How about airplanes4rent and pilotsparadise, both in FL.
Anyone's feedback?

Question is:
Pilotsparadise vs Flighttimebuilding vs Airplanes4rent
which one to select.
Could you please provide some words of advice?

Thank you so much.

It's definitely worth doing if you're still hour building - it'll get you used to multi and save on training costs later on.
It won't be pic as far as EASA is concerned if you're with an instructor.

There are a few places that offer an Aircam on amphibious floats - you can get multi land and sea at the same time for about 2000
