You could check the following as a start.

Ormond Beach Aviation
www.flyoba.com

and

Orlando Flight Training
www.flyoft.com

I'm sure there are more though.

Ormond Beach and Orlando Flight are both in Florida. In Florida there's also Naples Air Center (www.naplesaircenter.com) and European Flight Training (www.flyeft.com).

Then there is Anglo American Aviation (www.flyaaa.com) in California.

All those schools provide JAA PPL training.

Then there are schools advertising with the 'JAR compliant PPL' (UKFT, www.flyukft.com comes to mind). This JAR compliant PPL is effectively just a FAA PPL, but they claim you can use it in Europe too (at least in the UK), which is true for the UK, but not for many other EU countries.

On www.pprune.org you can find a lot more info and experiences with the flight schools named above.

If you get a US PPL , you can convert it to JAR PPL. Don't get suckered in to higher cost training just because it has a JAR label to it. Many ICAO countries convert PPL with just paperwork, as long as flight hour and some other requirements are satisfied.

Not true for conversion to a JAA PPL license, unfortunately.

To convert a FAA PPL to JAA PPL you must pass all 7 JAA theory exams (only 2 if you have more than 100h PIC time) and do the JAA PPL skill test. Of course you also need a JAA medical, and if you want to convert it to a British JAA PPL you must also do the R/T exam (this is a CAA requirement, not JAA, but other JAA countries could have this requirement as well).
