by George J. Kirkby from Franklin NJ USA Review: Lots of info for pilots,that's good and very entertaining. How about from the general public's point of view. What to look for when trying to find a flight school. How to find the airport. When you do find one most airport's don't even have a sign letting anyone know their in the business serving the public. we need some basic marketing skills. GA is like a closed society.
