Been reading through this forum a bit and finally making my first post. I'm looking to get my Private License on an R22, and have been doing tons of research over many months, but am having a very difficult time finding a school.
I am in Syracuse, NY and there is no helicopter school here. Nearest I have is Independent Helicopter which is almost 3 hours away but seems to be a fantastic school.
Because of my work schedule, I would really like to do a condensed course if possible, which I have seen several schools offer (in a 3-4 week course). I tend to learn better in a crammed schedule anyway.
I can fly out to Florida or California and do a condensed course, but its SO hard to find a reputable school it seems like. All of them seem to have several good reviews and then one super super bad one. If I'm going to schedule a month off of work and have all the money lined up to do this, then I want to be sure I will have a good experience.
Can anyone recommend a legitimate, long standing school with experienced instructors that also offers a condensed course?
