I am looking for a school that can help me finish my instrument rating.  I have met all of the requirements and passed the written test, but I need to refresh and become proficient.  I am looking for 1 to 2 weeks of intensive training, with a school that knows and has a good working relationship with a DPE.  All opinions are welcome.  I am in CA, but I am prepared to travel for this mission.  Thank you.

I would recommend Silverhawk Aviation in Caldwell, Idaho. Rates for the r-44 are only $425/hour which include fuel, instructor, everything. There are RNAV approaches, ILS, NDB, VOR/DME approaches. Plus the airspace in Boise is not so busy that you get vectored all over the place, you just go in and shoot approaches all day. The DPE is an awesome guy who made my check ride really enjoyable, and I learned alot. Lastly, Silverhawk provides housing which is about a mile from the school. The houses are clean, furnished, and cheap. I think one week would run you about $100 bucks, and you can get rides with your roomates, as we are all students. Our Instrument cheif who will sign you off for the check ride has a couple thousand actual instrument hours. He flew a lear jets as well as bELL 212 Insturment ship in Alasak for years, and you will learn more than can imagine thnt anything from a book. But I highly recomend Silverhawk, not because it is cheaper, but you will get some great training.

More than welcome to come out and fly with us in Clearwater, FL. 280/hr total for instrument ship w/ instructor and we also have a fly-it simulator at $140 hr which is great to refresh and save a few bucks. TampaBayAviation.com Jon CFII/A&P
