My family and i are moving to Canada next year to enable me to pursue my dream of becoming a pilot. Im tempted to try and obtain my PPL(H) before i go as the rates are very similar. according to web sites CPL(H) are available for only 105HRS with no previous experience. Anyone out there in a similar situation or been there done that. [/img]

Are you based in the UK? If you go the modular route over here and complete the CPL(H) you will end up with around 190 hours.
You might be thinking about the integrated course but I don't know if anyone runs those here - most people go the modular route (i.e. get your PPL(H) then hour build and get your theory passed before enrolling on the CPL course).
If you tell us a bit more about your location / plans then someone might be able to help you.

You should get in touch with Logan who is keeping a post going of his training day to day( Logans Run). He is really helpfull with any questions you have on training and flying in Canada...If you plan on staying in Canada you only need the 100hrs as they dont run PPL and CPL seperate..You basicly complete a 4 month intesive course which gives you a commercial licence....
just saw this going. Yeah as Fonz said, in Canada you can do the full blown CPL(H) with 100 hours. you can get your PPL then your CPL, but for the price difference and cost of building hours in between, the CPL(H) here is likely your best bet. As WG said, having your PPL first gives you some background and gets the theory out of the way, having the whole shot CPL is helpful and less costly then doing them separately, at least here! Any questions feel free to ping me or WG, there are lots of greats guys and gals on here who told me everything i need to know before i started training
Thanks for the info everyone, we are planning on moving next year but I cant wait to get back in the seat so its likley I will try to gain some experience here by going for my ppl. Im still waiting for schools to contact me from B.C Canada about converting to cpl once im there. But hey I have learn to walk before I can run. Also a big thank you to Whirlygirl, I attended your seminar last thursday and found it very benifical, its great people like you are out there giving up your time to help people like me. thanks again everyone.
