The article discusses university and fixed-based operator (FBO) as flight school options for flight students, based on their goals and individual situation. The author explains that the decision to start flight training as a university student is not to be taken lightly as acceptance into an aviation-centered university requires a move, takes up most of one's free time, and a large financial investment. For older students or those already working full-time, the author suggests the FBO.
