Hi All,

 

After 6 months of trying to gain funding to get my PPL (H) I've finally secured the finances.

 

I am 23 years of age, and in need of some advice, I love flying in helicopters and decided to take the plunge and learn to make a career out of it.

 

What is the best way to progress into a paying job to fly helicopters within the UK.

 

I honestly don't mind what kind of job i'm doing along i'm flying. I understand the more hours the better, any advice on building hours would be great. 

 

I aim to have my PPL (H) by end of Jan 2015. 

 

Then I don't know what steps to take to further things.

 

Help please.

 

Regards

Ben

Well... Start flying is one option....get hours, its a international strategy that seems to work. Another option is the put all that money on black and spin the wheel....it might double itself and let you fly more!!

However that advise isnt well played most of the time lol.
Sometimes we think we know it all....only later to discover we only knew all we had learned. Never stop learning.
