  1. Lol. Crazy bastards.. I really appreciate all of your viewpoints but I take them with a grain of salt. EVERYONE has and will always have different experiences. I don't think I'll mess with the Cabri. Most likely going to go with Front Range Helicopters. Mainly train on the 300 but I'll also get time in a turbine and the 44. If need be, I'll also add some time in the 22, but I network like a mofo so I've been very blessed to have already met some amazing people who love hiring rotors who truly love flying. I think a lot of whether you land a job or not is who you are and whether people like you. Or word of mouth somehow gets to people that you're a damn good pilot.

  3. Looking at going to a school that's training students using the Schweizer 300 and the new Cabri. Was wondering if by training on these platforms I'd be setting myself up for failure or if I'll still be marketable when it comes time to instruct(if not for the same school) and later for employment. Thanks for your help. And in case you're wondering, the school in question is Precision Aviation. Any other suggestions for schools would also be greatly appreciated but they must meet the following criteria: 1. Working with a college degree program 2. In a larger city or within approx. 30/45 mins. 3. Able to accept VA funding Thanks!
  4. I'm trying not to get anything set in my head on how it's all gonna play out. Just hoping that lucky horseshoe my dad always said I had up my ass is still there and things work out for me. Haha
  5. Only reason I might consider doing my commercial in a turbine is because I plan on staying at my school and instructing for a year or so after school and after 500hrs I may be able to instruct in it. Then I'd have my hundred and some hours plus whatever I can acquire while instructing.
  6. Would be at any kind of loss by going to a school that doesn't offer high altitude training?
  7. Anyone know a helicopter flying school near Chicago/in the Midwest that's associated with a college offering VA benefits?
  8. Got about 70/80lbs to lose before I could make WOFT happen(I'm already working on getting under 230 from 250 by May) and I'm 33 yrs old. Pretty sure I'm already to old or damn near there.
  9. It is ULA. Need a school that is working with a College so I can use my GI Bill to it's fullest potential.
