Palomar or Long beach Locations?

Has anyone trained at these locations and could give me some insight?
These are my two prospective locations Im looking at for Summer 2020. I fly around long beach and they seem to always have a bunch of planes in the practice area and traffic pattern.

I did crew out of palomer and it seemed like a nice location


Keep in mind that ATP tries very hard to standardize locations as much as possible. The student experience really should be the same from one location to the next.


I visited Long Beach location in June of this year. The CFI who took me on discovery flight told me they were in the process of expanding so it might be little bit different now, but it was fine as it was. Had a chance to chat with students for a minute on the way to the plane and they seemed all satisfied with their location.
