Heavier Students

Recommended Posts

I am looking into flight schools and being a heavier but losing kinda guy I was wondering if anyone knows what weight i need to make to get started? The school I am looking at uses Schweizer 300c Helicopters, and Schweizer 333 Turbine Helicopters. I have seen posts about the R22's but not these. Does anyone know?

Keep your weight under 240, and your CFI at 170 or so, and you can fly the R22 as well.
