R-44 Ferry Flight $225 an hour

Recommended Posts

It is AWESOME!!! Where else are you going to find dual insturction in a 44 for $225 an hour. Most flight schools charge $250 and up for dual in a 22. Most new pilots need the time whether its doing manuvers or straight and level flight! You dont like it, you can keep paying $500-$600 an hour for dual instruction in a 44 at you local flight school!


Its all about getting as many hours for as cheap as possible when you are trying to build time! YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT!

It's the fact that an aircraft "needs" to be ferried. Not whether or not you're providing a service. It sounds like you "need" a service done and you're willing to let someone pay to do it.


When does a ferry flight not need to be done? Is that not always the purpose of a "ferry" flight?


I am not validating the charges to get flight time here! I am saying that most flights "need" to be done or have a mission intent which includes ferry flights.

Let's think of this another way. You have some free time and some money to burn (Not that I do) why not spend a week or two flying across the USA. So you spend 4 grand, you see great landscape, and get to fly a helicopter. Nothing is free in this world, he offsets the cost of the relocation and you get a great vacation.
