Your local flying club. Where are you located?

The airplanes all seem to fly the same regardless of where you go, so I wouldn't go chasing a commercial license across the country. Let's set you up with someone good in the province from which you are located. You're just as likely to get a lousy instructor at your local airport as you are 1000 miles away.

What Desks said, with the added benefit of possible employment with that operator when you are done. Good Luck!

Id say go home and save some rent and find a new instructor(To speed up the training), as long as you know that the flight school back home doesnt try and soak you for all you got.

P.S I say find a new instructor only because you can save alot of money living at home and not because your current instructor is no good, as I have no idea where or with who you did your training :)
