I was looking at finishing my commercial requirements ASAP and in the interests of only spending the money I have to, here’s what I was thinking:
Since I need about 23 additional hours to meet the 250 hour total time requirement, I was thinking I would take advantage of using a simulator instead of paying for an aircraft for as much of that time as possible.
At Airmods, this cuts the cost from $110+ to $15 per hour. I still need another 7 hours of complex instruction, so that brings the number of hours I could do in the simulator to about 16. The way I see it, that saves at least $1520 that I can put toward the more expensive complex dual time.
That being said, please offer any thoughts you all have on making a constructive experience out of 16 hours of simulator time. . . .
