Evening All,

In another thread, where I mentioned lack of instructor/machine this weekend at Sloanes (as a passing comment), a few people threw in shameless plugs for their local school.

Does anybody have any opinions on using more than one school (if only to fill gaps where there is no machine available at your primary school)?

How would this work with my training record?

Is there any benefit (or disadvantage) to it?

Does anybody think that it might upset the primary school?

Any thoughts much appreciated!!


Craig.

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.

Thanks FF,

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!!

HC.

I think you'll find that's the only way!

Check out that device that WhirlyGuy found for learning 'remotely' - it's another method.

If you are looking for the same aircraft at a different flying school then http://www.helifind.co.uk can help you locate one.
