I`m working as an MP officer in The Royal Norwegian Airforce, but i`m planning to start my aviation training now at a civilian school/training centre. As there are a lot of offers out there, i need some advice to help me pick the right school. I`ve been accepted at NAIA and COM-AIR and a lot of other schools, but these two are the most interesting offers at the moment.
I want to go all the way into the airliners, which school should i use????

Grim, even though my job is secure, I still keep my eyes on the job market. I won't go into any detail here, but one of our members, Doug Taylor, has what I think is the best site for a prospective airline pilot around. http://www.jetcareers.com.
From his site, link into the "will fly for food". Go to the bulletin board there and solicit someone's opinion for Comair. You are bound to get an answer. I can tell you that I have heard mixed reviews on Comair, but not too many details. People have strong reviews on programs on that board--Gulfstream Airlines, for instance got a very interesting response.
The other thing I would do is go to http://www.jetjobs.com--NOTE THAT IT IS "JOBS" not CAREERS. This is AirInc's site. Get a subscription! Just do it! This will keep your finger on the pulse of jobs and training programs not just in the USA but all over the world.
You will find a very CONCENTRATED audience of people like yourself who want to make the airlines a career, and you will get an honest response.
