So, the operative word here is your. That's easy - at my flight school, straight to Private is not an option. All of my students use Sport as a portal of entry, because that's how the curriculum is designed. My stepping stone approach is not necessarily right for everybody. Those who don't want to go this route are certainly welcome to go elsewhere, but the past 9 years have shown me that the folks who enroll for PP at other flight schools end up paying more. Maybe it's because their curricula are less efficient. Or maybe it's because they train in aircraft with higher operating and maintenance costs. Or maybe (blush) I'm just a better instructor?
