Serious Italian Helicopter schools


Recommended Posts

Did my flying in the USA and move to Italy near Venice. It is very hard to find serious Italian helicopter schools. Searched on all the web and sended many e-mail to flightschools but nobody is home or the site is under construction.

 

Can some one please help me with this problem. I did alot of training in the Schweitzer. They say that alot of schools speak italian and no english in their groundschool what I can not imagine. Hope some one can help me with this problem because i wanne fly.

 

Thanks and fly safe

Maybe try taking a drive to the schools and talk to them in person over there instead of trying to contact them from the internet.

 

Also try looking in a yellow pages type of directory if they have such a thing.

 

Good luck

I think you have never been to Italy. Things are different there and change very quickly. Driving over there will take many days. Hopefully i will get a more serious response

Benny, I am Italian like you, and I run a helicopter training facility here in the USA.

I totally understand your frustration when it comes to obtaining answers or even simple infos in our country.

I have graduated from the Italian Air Force Academy, and flown many hours in C130H mb 326, MB 339 and yes, I am not a spring chicken anymore: flown G91 as well. If I wanted a serious helicopter transition I had to come to the USA, and achieved all my goals. The chanches of getting a job in Italy are slim to none, unless you got some seroius connections... but that is a very common situation over there...

How many hours PIC do you have and what ratings have you gotten under your belt?

The 300 CB is not very popular in Europe, unfortunately.

Good luck with your project and let me know if I can help, somehow..

Hi pilots who replied on my question,

 

 

Thank you for all your replys and the advice you gave me.

 

I am gone finish the flying in the USA after speaking with some pilots. For me it is difficult to finish it up in Italy.The 130 hrs on the Schweizer are not valid in Italy and I have to start all over again. When I finish it in the USA than it takes in my circumstancis less time to achieve what I wanne do.

 

Two schools from the 12 school I contacted in Italy gave me a positive reply , Bassi Robert of AEREO CLUB “F. BARACCA” Lugo di Romagna and Francesco Simiconi from Air Service Center.

 

My advice is , whenever other people are looking for serious helicopter schools, send them to these two schools.

 

Everybody a Happy Christmass and a good and safe 2007 for you and your family

 

Benny
