US Flight Schools near Montreal?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm an American student currently going to school in Montreal who has a private pilot's certificate in helicopters from the FAA. I wanted to continue flying, but its almost twice as much per hour here than it was back in Pennsylvania! So I'm looking at perhaps making a commute across the border to continue flying.


I was wondering if there are any flight schools in Upstate New York? All I have found in the area is Mansfield Heliflight in Vermont. I was hoping for something a little closer to Montreal.

Where are you at in Montreal? I am from Vermont and did my undergrad in Biochem at McGill! I think I remember hearing something about an Enstrom doing some training up there in NNY, but other than that the closest I know of is C-R Helicopters in Nashua, NH.....far.


Hopefully the Enstrom person will chime in!! I have a friend flying utility outside Albany, I will ask him if knows of anyone up that way and post back. Good luck in Montreal, I spent 6 great years up there...love it.

north andover flight academy (boston area company) is opening a branch in alexandria bay, ny. you could take the 401 up the river, and cross over right in alex bay. it's a new op, so i'm not sure if they're up and running, yet.

There used to be a couple in upstate ny but they were more near the syracuse area but I haven't heard anything from them in awhile. I thought I heard one of them had shut down. I do remember one was using a Bell 47G though.. lemme look for that info...
