Choosing the Best Flying School

Hi Capt Lim,
 
Is there a universally accepted ranking of pilot schools in the world? Like business schools, Financial Times publishes the world ranking of universities each year for the benefits of readers.
 
I am curious to know if there is such a ranking system.

If no, how do I find the ranking of pilot schools to choose from a myriad of flying schools worldwide?
 
Regards
 
MSL

Hi MSL,
 
As far as I know, there is no universally accepted ranking of any flight training colleges or schools.
 
The closest that I have come across is one from the Flight School Reviewer which rates a school based on the following criteria:
  1. Instruction & Ground School
  2. School Facilities
  3. Aircraft & Courses
  4.  Cost
I cannot verify the information as I believe there are a few other good flying schools not listed here.

Anyway, with the courtesy of Flight School Reviewer below is an extract of their first top 100 rankings of flight schools:-

Requesting help opportunity
Dear sir/Madam,
Requesting help opportunity to success my ambition
My Name is Dilan Demian Ishan Seffer and I am 22 years Old. I am a Sri Lankan citizen. My Passport Number is N5297092.I Studied biology scheme and such for the Advanced Level in 2011 and got a passed the examination. I participated in sports activities at school and excelled in all sports. And I took part in external sports activities also. I got medals in “All Island School Sports meet. My childhood dream was to become an “Air Professional Pilot”. I was selected to the University but rejected it because their no Pilot trainee programs (B.Sc. In Aviation Degree Programs) in Sri Lankan university.
So I applied to the “Cadetship in regular force of Sri Lankan Air Force” Pilot trainee degree program. I was call for an interview. In the interview at the Air force I got 96% marks in written and practical sections. After I passed all medical tests also. After the final interview they informed me that I was selected in the first place as a recruit for training and to the course. Few days later I was informed by telephone that I was not selected to the Pilot trainee degree program. I asked by telephone from the recruit officer in Sri Lankan air Force why I was not selected for Pilot trainee course. Recruit officer told me that my name was not included in the ministry list, he also told that it was a political inference. He also told me to get a help of a high ranking politician to get my entered. But I could not get any help from any politician. Then I was rejected from the course.
After that I went to all the pilot training institutes in my country and inquired about the details of the course and relevant fees. I was informed “Professional Pilot course “duration is 2 ½ years and the minimum fees for the course would be USD. 45000.00
As this is a very high amount, and I am not in passion to get this amount.my father died suddenly in an accident in 2002 when I am in grade 5.He was a senior Tea factory Officer. My mother work Janata Estate Development Board Accounts Clark and get retired. I have a younger sister who she is attending school at present. My mother suffering minor ailments. Income we have is not sufficient for me and my sister’s education and my family upkeep. For I inquired in several banks for an Educational loan as they did not have such a plan. I tried best by keeping our land and house as security to a bank, but it was not successful.
I am in very difficult position now, and I have feeling frustrated because of this to make a success of my intention to become an Air pilot. I am asking you to give me a scholarship for this pilot training course or a sponsorship to go through this course. It would be and esteemed help to me. I beg you to consider this letter and grant me the necessary help to full feel my ambition and my future.
I thank you for your kind co-operation in this matter.
