That is a good site, I had seen it before. I like cbhelos.com but it is not really flight school focused. It is just very well done and just a professional site.

I like http://www.allamericanhelicopters.com

 

It has a ton of useful information on it.

 

 

 

Glad to see this site listed. i have a friend that flies his Citation into Denton once or twice a month.. he always visits this school to chat and says they are ultra professional and constantly busy. Denton is a cool town, i would look into it if i were moving there or lived near there for sure.

 

nice site too...

It depends what you are looking for when selecting a flight school. I spent some time on that website a few weeks ago. Although it was entertaining, the videos on nearly every page were a bit overwhelming and seemed a bit too "look at me, I'm a bad @ss helicopter pilot."

 

When I was picking my flight school I wanted clear concise information on what to expect during training, information about the job market, a little info about why they are going to be better at getting me a job, safety records, prices and phone numbers to real people to talk about it. I looked at a lot of websites when I was choosing my school, although I agree they are important, I didn't s pend much time on the individual sites, and it didn't make a huge difference in my choice.

Well, i thought about this one for a few days.. and i agree with Sparker... Most of the sites have good areas and not so good areas...

 

so, i guess i should have started the post with "what parts of what sites do you like the best". Or, "what would you most like to see on/in a schools web site?"

 

aloha,

THe most annoying thing that a website can have is some kind of automatic sound. especially if there is no instantly apparent way of silencing it. Videos can be just as bad, especially if I'm going to be checking the site frequently.

I'm sorry, but the High Desert helo page might be more convincing if the special forces/law enforcement wannabe depicted was standing in front of a gunship. As it is, it smacks of dressing up in a g suit, helmet and oxygen system and standing in front of a c-150......or a Hells Angel straddling a Big Wheel.

 

But I'm sure it appeals to a certain segment of the population......

 

(I'm looking for the emoticon with the "L" on the forehead)

 

Just tell me where you are, what you fly and give me some assurance I'm not going to pay too much while I'm betting some poor cfi $45-an-hour that I can't kill him/her.....
