Greece and EU flight schools

I am looking for integrated ATPL course. EASA, preferably in Europe. At the moment, I found a lot of school in Greece, that are in my price range (looking for something under 60k). I can't find more information about some schools, I am particularly interested in:
1. Ionian Aviation Academy.
2. FAS pilot academy.
Also, I live in the Balkans, and I am also trying to find something here, like Slovenia and Croatia. But they are all modular, or not respected (as it is said on PPRuNe). So, i would really like to gain some knowledge about this. All answers are welcome!

Egnatia and Global Aviation are well established schools. I would look at them. Also for a job as a FI at the end if you show interest and commitment.

I looked at both, Egnatia is way too expensive ~80k. Global Avition SA is cheaper - 59k. I am considering Global, still, I want to hear about those schools too. Thank you for your reply

Make no decision without visiting the Establishment first.
Absolutely critical that you speak to their current customers (students) away from the prying ears of management.

There is an abundance of advice on PPRuNe about what the potential customer must do.
Scrutinise it very carefully.
Happy hunting

Try to be smart !
ATO who provide cheap flight training, are the ones who feed you peanuts, and your gonna act like a monkey !
Ionian Aviation is one of those so called ATO, less expensive training organization.
Stay away from Ionian Aviation by just 100 feet, and go to Global Aviation, which is next door, at Megara Airport.
This I know from experience , I have worked as Chief Pilot for Ionian Aviation
Egnatia is also top of the bill in Greece, I can recommend for sure.
Whatever you decide, before you put any money down, go and visit the place, and talk to so many people as you can.
Don`t do anything stupid, unless your father is a millionaire, then do whatever makes you happy !
Good luck.

Sounds like good advice to me. Think ahead - the option of the FI route to stay busy and get an extra qualification - should things not have picked up by the time you're finished with your licensing.
