Recommended Posts

If anyone can help me I know you can.I am private rotor with instrument.My commercial is almost done with the exception of some night.The problem is my current school changes instructors as much as I change my bed.I need info on a school that will finish my comm. and help me get my test done.Period.I have over 120 hours in 300.I know some will say not enough hours.I am also rated multi comm instrument fixed,so this is an add on.I am in Mass. but will travel to a school, stay there, and finish training,test, and get on with my life.The time it takes to get to know another instructor,and another instructor,then go to another state to take my check ride, to the tune of 2 hours more travel time plus the examiner fee,well,it is over 2000 dollars.You see my point? Please help if you can with info on 300 schools so I do not have to transition to robbies,no disrespect intended.I will check this site regularly.Many thanks , blue skies.

I know what you mean about flight schools changing instructors - I went through four different instructors between private and CFII. Anyway, I'm the Chief Flight Instructor...the only flight instructor...at a new flight school in Horsham, PA. I have my 1,000+ hours but I'm not going anywhere. I love to teach. We charge $275/hour for R22 time. Feel free to contact me if you're interested: (301) 717-5455 or RMSchapiro@foxchoppers.com.

Lol i figure you could find alot of schweizer ip's but i would recomend hiking it to ohio for a little bit and flying with steve slater and the guys from fairfield airventures. I had one instructor throughout my training and i feel very happy with how they trained me. Real down to earth relaxing way to fly though, and no compromise in safety.

If you're from Mass., fly 300's, and are trying to find a quality school with quality instructors to finish your ratings, then to me its a no brainer. Blue Hill Helicopters out of Norwood, Ma. has 300's and all the instructors are HAI or Bristow trained. I haven't known any to leave until well after 1000 hours of flying, which is probably the norm at most schools. I don't know of any other 300 schools in the area which leaves me a little skeptical as to where you have been doing your training. Anyway, if you want more info. send me a pm. I don't work for them, but I am currently working on another rating there. DG

;) Hey Friend

 

Door Gunner is right , Blue Hill Helicopters did all my ratings to the highest standard , your crazy if you think your going to get the same instructor FOR LIFE !!! maybe if you train full time ?? but are you a weekend ranger or a full time guy ??

 

Any way , i live on the west coast now and have been instructing here for a while building hours in my own small school , I would hire a Blue Hill grad over any other school and will be emailing the guys to see if they have anybody ready !!!!

 

 

Good luck in your search for the Holy grail !!

 

Fly Safe
