Hi there, i'm just trying to work out future costs in order to reach the FI pre-requisite mark and i need to do about 90 hours self fly hire. Now i calculated that if those hours were to be done in the UK it'd be about 16920 :-S

Therefore, does anyone know what the standard US rate is on the R22? I've tried some googling but to no avail...also, has anyone here done some States hourbuilding? Any info would be greatly appreciated...cheers! Siam

I don't have it to hand, but this month's Pilot magazine has its annual Where to Fly Guide as an insert and the major US helicopter companies and their rates are listed, along with some contact e-mail addresses to confirm.

Hi Siam,
Don't know about the US rates, but having seen many post on hour building costs etc it might be worth looking http://www.helijet.co.uk/hourbuilding.html

Regards,
AC.

I can suggest one place that will SFH the R22 for $235 (I would need to check but that was the rate when I came back to the UK in Feb) so around 155 at today's exchange rate.

Added bonus is the lack of landing fees, more flexible approach to flying, more accomodating ATC, single engine flight over cities, chance to land at major airports, etc.

PM if you want the details.

If you go to California worth trying to get on the factory safety course too.

Also if I am there and you want a safety pilot/cost share I may be available.

And if you are interested in some cheap EC120 time.... Smile

Expect to pay for some dual time as well, most places will want to be comfortable with you before they let you loose on one of their helicopters. That would add $45 -$50 per hour, but I would be surprised if they required more than a couple of dual flights.

Prices I quoted are wet and will be less if you buy 10 hour blocks. Does anyone still quote non wet rates - here or abroad? (Other than Ryanair Smile)

Lol, Ryanair dry rates don't even include forks, or seatbelts - so add considerable extortionate extra fee's to have a standard level of comfort plus fuel.

[squawk:7500]
Did anyone see O'Leary on the news last night, complaining about how much Ryanair are having to fork out for not running flights? Made me laugh when he said he'd had a claim for 800 when the airface was just 9. I'm sure he omitted to include the charges for check-in, hold luggage, hand baggage, toilet use, boarding passes, taxes, booking fees, credit/debit card fees, and the charge they now make for saying hello to the cabin crew.
