$65/hr 172 here...although the school I did my training at went under from rising insurance costs shortly after 9/11.

I did my training back in '94-'96. The plane was $45 / hr. I paid about $3500 for the complete training program. You can still do it for that if you look in the right places.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

I trainned on a Katana at YQB (Pro-Aviation). I paid $90CDN per hour...My licence cost me around $9kcdn.
3 month ago, I rented a Cesna 172 SP almost new for circa $130cdn at Montreal St-Hubert and YQB (both Pro-Aviation). Great feeling to pilot that machine and it is a good school.
Here, in Berlin Germany, an old Cesna 172 is around 180euro per hour. ($240cdn). Not a good value.
From my experience, best place to learn and cheapest place are in Canada.

I did my training in beautiful San Antonio Tx at Alpha Tango Flying Services. Current prices:
C152: 56 USD (-10% OFF if you pay a 10 hours block)
C172: 76 USD (same deal)
C310: 110 USD (same deal)
Instructor rate: 30 USD
The airplanes are not new but are well maintained and the weather is excellent.
There are no stupid questions... just stupid people!

On Long Island, NY I pay 107/hr for fuel, instructor and aircraft. There are better deals but I trusted the maintanence of this school more.

The place I rented from this summer was $68 a hour wet for a 172N, and $48 an hour wet for a Grumman Trainer. I think they are quite reasonable prices.
