Hello everyone.
I was wondering if anyone here felt that they could recommend a FTO for the CPL training.
Ideally it would be within 1 hours drive of Gloucestershire but I could possibly live in a tent if I can sort the time off from work!!!!
Many thanks in advance.
P.S. I have looked at the thread below but I am really looking for personal recommendations from previous students - cheers Very Happy

Hi Mutley

There are a few limitations with personal recommendations... namely that not everybody experiences more than one training organization but can still be quite opinionated about "their" school, different people like different approaches to training, and of course instructors move on.

If you have hours to fly before starting the course, my personal suggestion would be to get the list of schools from the CAA website and go fly some hours at the schools which take your fancy. You'll get a feel for the organization, how they handle accounts, how they treat you as a customer, and how you get on with the instructors.

Thanks for your reply. I take on board what you say but I would still be interested to hear of anyone who feels they had a good experience with their FTO.
Thanks again Smile
