Most will have at least one flight school. Av8trxx January 31, 2011 at 6:34 pm Here is a list of flight schools in Louisiana- http://www.private2atp.com/fbo/LA.html Go to one and take an intro flight. It would be wise to shop and compare the schools in your area. Not all are a good value. Also, a local flying club is often the most affordable way to get all the necessary licenses & ratings. Some airports do not have flying clubs, but it’s worth investigating as clubs are often not-for-profit and for their members. They have no overhead or staff to pay, so they are often less costly than flight schools on the same airport. Ask around your local airport to see if there are any.
