Good advise.  Unfortunately I did miss the aviation show.  I'm also in the process of trying to buy and sale and house, so until I need get that checked off the list, so  I have to miss out on things like that.  Most importantly the $$ made on the sale of my house is financing the lessons.

Another thing I forgot to ask.  I'm 5'10 195.  152 or 172? I know it will also depend of CFI size and cost of 152 is a lot less.

You shouldn't have too much of a problem squeezing into a 152.  I trained in a 172, but got checked out in 152 right after private. Fun machines.

In the 152, if your instructor is of average height and weight, you'll likely be or nearly be shoulder to shoulder. Not a training problem, unless it is a personal problem. I'd at least start in the 152 and move up if you find it an issue.

I did my check-ride through SFS and like the people, CFI's and facility.  Best thing to do is get started, even if money and time are not all that available, getting started helps to keep it going.
