That's awesome! I'm probably going to do it in a Cessna 172. That's the cheapest plane the school I'm going to has. Actually, they have a taildragger, too, but I heard that's a lot more difficult.
I've flown a Piper Cub, Piper Arrow, Cessna 152, and a few other small planes. I was working towards my license while in college but had the brilliant idea of getting married which forced me to quit due to the cost. I plan to start up again and get my license and possibly do a joint or triple ownership on a plane so the costs stay low. Nothing beats flying in my opinion.
