Wow, this might be a serious set back. I just found out, minutes before my scheduled lesson, that my flight school has closed and sold their airplanes, yet another victim of the closure of the Blue Ash Airport. The owner of Blue Ash Aviation inexplicable decided to take the Warrior off the airport for a “pre buy” inspection (even though it’d just had a 100 hour inspection last week)… on the busiest weekend of the year – the plane was so booked for tomorrow by students preparing for their Private Pilot checkrides that I’d put my weekend lesson off till Sunday. That’s one hell of way to say welcome to the airport, if you ask me.
More to the point, he’s not announced if or when the Lebanon instructors will be allowed use of the airplanes, or at what cost, or when they will be available, or with what restrictions (other than an oblique mention of needing renters insurance). All of this without notice. Wow. The only reason I didn’t drive to the airport is my instructor had a lesson before me and showed up to be told the airplanes were gone and sold. Simply stunning. It’s their business to run, I suppose, but I’d have to say that I don’t like the customer service.
