Training in Minnesota?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm brand spankin' new here and this is my first post. Apologies up front if I'm not adhering to etiquette, I don't really know what I'm doing.


What I'm hoping for is some advice on PPL training in Minnesota. I may or may not be moving away from MN once the housing market releases it's death grip on me, but in the mean time desperately want to start flying. If I fall in love with a school, I could stay. On the other hand, I like the idea of varying the experience and love this great state but must travel. Regardless, as far as I can tell, I have two viable options to at least get things started:

Complete Helicopters (Robinsons)


Hummingbird Aviation (Schweizers)


I have visited both and know what my gut says. I've read some forums and know the R22 vs. 300 debate. I guess i just need some 'been there, done that' words of wisdom, as the whole investment is a bit daunting and I can't really find any reviews or anything.


So if anyone has any experience with either place or any other things to add, I would love to hear it!!! Many thanks in advance, PJ
