  1. You're getting awfully close to the age cut-off. Stick with teaching and fly on the side as a hobby.
  2. No. Flapping and feathering only takes care of a portion, without tilting the mast you'd be compensating with the cyclic.
  3. They are also sometimes tilted sideways to counteract dissymmetry of lift.
  4. The biggest hurdle with getting your fixed wing first is that in order to become a marketable pilot you will need ROTARY time, not fixed wing. TT doesn't matter when you're trying to get a CFI job with 100+ other applicants.
  5. It's much better now than before...during the SSH heyday Uncle Sam was shilling out 100K left and right to people that never even finished their commercial, let alone ever became a marketable pilot. Making them pay a little out of pocket brings some type of assurance that they will actually follow thru with their commitment. My ex-wife is a Veteran...the amount of money the VA spent on "training" her is insane...and to this day, she's not employed in any of the fields.
  6. Correct, and that's how it should be. Too many abused the system in the past...got trained and then did nothing afterwards...they just wanted to be "pilots". At a 141 school you should be able to get your private in under 40 hours assuming you are a good stick, so in reality if you study a lot on your own, pay for minimum ground school, you should be able to do your private for around $15k.
  7. I'm pretty sure I know the school you're talking about. I know the owner and he's also a member here. I believe they are approved to accept VA benefits?
  8. 30K for a private? No way in hell I'd pay over $15k for a private!
  9. Patrol flights will be over 25 miles usually...and good luck getting any fire work as a 91 operator. Just because it's in the Regs doesn't mean that's how it works in real life. Ag work requires a Part 133 cert also.
  10. That doesn't mean much since probably 10x more Robbies exist than Enstroms.
  11. Don't forget you need to be a Part 135 operator and most likely a Part 133 operator to be able to contract.
  12. BoatPix might be worth looking into.
  13. No? It's not a Hawk. Definitely not a Cobra.
