Not sure where H-C but this was mentioned elsewhere - that some Pilots have had several instructors and I added to it, so I could go trawling.. but it was felt that more than one tutor gave you a good cross section of knowledge, different ways of learning things and a wide appreciation that there ARE different ways to do the same procedure - not necessarily that there is only one way.
I had 5 instructors in all, 3 for quite long periods over the 2 years I was learning. I don't know about different schools, but if you do go elsewhere just for a blast, the change of scenery and other machines will broaden your knowledge and again, a change of tutor may help you see something another way round.

I have read that thread before - you can't help but agree with the general sentiment. I might have a word with Joe @ Sloane tomorrow and see what the general feeling would be if I did the odd bit of flying with another school.
I really don't want to annoy Sloane, because they are a really really good group of people - but bottom line is that I want to learn to fly and need to be in a machine to do that. Work commitments limit my availability at the moment, so it's not their fault - but I can't learn to fly sitting down!!
