I would recommend this school to anyone. I dug around to find the best school for me and I am very happy with my decision. The instructors actually care about your progress and I feel like they make sure you don't waste money because we all know aviation is expensive. Every lesson I've had here I've learned something. Their ground school is good too. Everyone here is welcoming and know their stuff. I wouldn't want to fly anywhere else.

I flew with Jeff Montalbine at their Akron location and I didn't learn anything. All he did the three flights I had with him was whine about another flight school and how they fired him. I understand why. He doesn't allow the student to fly and doesn't really seem to know what he's doing. Premier is OK but this instructor gives it a bad name. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

This place is just plain awesome!!! You get such a great bang for your buck!! They are professional in everything they do. They have instructors with REAL experience not just freshly hired CFI's with 250 hours. I wish i would have went here for my training from the begining.

Premier is a great flight school. They have two locations to fit your needs as well as a professional and experienced flight staff. The negative review here was from Denise Hobart. She is the Chief pilot at american winds and she is trying to make her school sound better. Do your research....the internet is crawling with great reviews for Premier, and negative ones for American Winds. It is obvious which school is better

Took lessons for almost 6 weeks at Burke Airport and wasted my money, went to the Akron location because I had money on account, and finally got some red goofy headed kid who was dumb as a rock. This place got thrown out of Lost Nation. Don't waist your time at this place!
