So I'm just curious to know what everyone is paying per flight hour for their training and in what aircraft they are training in?

Well, The cost depends upon where you fly, what you fly, how often you fly, and your skills as a student. Currently I am pursuing an aviation degree for my FAA license in CA.
In the USA, expect it to cost around $10,000, although the costs could be as low as $7,000 to $8,000. For a given flight lesson, expect about 1 hour in the air and 1 hour on the ground. An average cost for that is about $180 to $200 for dual instruction, and around $120 to $140 per hour solo.

Im just going to assume those numbers you quoted are for fixed wing. IF they aren't, you found yourself the cheapest cost out there.
