  1. Yes. "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." -Wayne Gretzky -MICHAEL SCOTT
  2. Yes I would love a career flying a helicopter. I don't have the financial background to be able to pay for training just for kicks. I have heard good things about helicopterground.com and will most likely subscribe at some point and start the book learning process. Do you do instruction at the $250 rate or is that simply the time building rate. Free housing is a nice perk!
  3. Hah that's correct, BoatPix. You'll see 259 of my posts are from a decade ago when I was a senior in High School and all I wanted in the world was to fly. Life took me another direction for a bit but now I'm back here. A veritable old man now.

  5. Yesterday I took my first intro flight here at their Springdale, Arkansas facility with Chief Pilot Austin Riley. (Hi Austin if you're reading) I know absolutely nothing about flight schools as this is the only one I've ever been to. Does anyone have any knowledge of the quality of their operation and personnel? They do all of their instructing out of R44's and when I asked why they don't use any R22's I was told it's because they're unsafe for students compared to an R44 and they were in fact never meant to be used for flight training. Does this sound correct? I didn't think so as the R22 is essentially the number 1 helicopter for flight training. They do offer a good rate, $380 for 10 hour blocks of instruction in the R44. But that's still more than most R22 rates, I do believe. Moreover since all my hours would be in the 44 I would still be short the 50 hours R22 needed to be able to teach in the R22 further down the line. Unless I lucked into a school that needed only an R44 instructor. Link to School: http://www.arhelicopters.com/ Thoughts? Opinions? Complaints? Please let me hear them. Thanks!
  6. i think, although i'm not sure, delorean did some type of university while he was flying EMS. you might try pm'ing him about it.
  7. yep, that would be a sweet deal, it's beautiful there. i can't remember for sure but i think they will be looking for some new pilots to sign on at the end of this year or start of next year.
  8. yea, that's just to much for tuition. thanks for the information though.
  9. do you know how they are with scholarships? i have a 3.9 high school gpa and 29 act score.
