Surely I can do 25 hours flying instruction in a week?

Sounds like it, doesn’t it? However, one must consider that every hour of flying instruction needs at least another hour for pre-brief, (to prepare you properly for the exercise) and then the de-brief afterwards to clarify onward progress.

It is possible to have two lessons in a day but one needs a mental rest in between. The brain has got to ‘process’ the first lesson for there to be any learning.

I would advise having lessons close together near the beginning of the course and especially near to going solo.

If you have to save for each lesson it is better to save for a number of hours and then fly when the weather is good enough. Big gaps in between lessons leads to reprising a lot rather than progressing.
