Can confirm - the aeros are amazing!
For myself I’d be inclined to say the flying is the flying - you’ll almost certainly have emough hours overall by the end anyway and unless you STOP flying immediately after qualifying then any increased money spent during the training phase just sort of blurs away into the overall spend in the end!
If you really need to look at it in terms of hard cash it might be worth a thought as to how much currency “costs”. Will waiting means you’re rustier still, so need extra flying anyway? I’m not convinvced the cost argument holds.
Everywhere is going to struggle with instructor availibilty this spring and summer as everyone, including qualified pilots scramble to get back current. If you like the school and they’re good otherwise I wouldn’t have though the odd hour here or there is a deal breaker.
