I have done and seach but can't find anything on this.
I am looking to go to Florida in Set 07 to do my JAA CPL, then come back and do my IR course in the UK, then fly north sea oil rigs, untill I can get my hours up to fly HEMS.
I am looking for anyone, who has been to HAI in the US to do there CPL.
What did you think?
What did you do about payment stages? I have heard that if you pay all up front you get bad service.
What was the equipment like, were you ever not able to fly because of something (not weather)
Where did you stay?
Any other advice you can offer.

I considered the whole "abroad" thing for MONTHS before deciding that despite the high cost getting your pplh in the uk was a really wise idea, to decide in my own mind that it was what i really wanted to do, and to get experience in the part of the world that i intend to fly in. (ie the UK)
Beyond that, there are cost saving issues to consider if your going to get to commercial level and beyond (CPLH and FI courses half the cost in the US with the stong pound at present!)
Going abroad with your pplh will also ultimately give you more time to hour build in the year that you get to do it (US anyway- with an M1 visa)
(J1 visa gives you 2 years and you can "work" too.)
(the link above will explain the whole visa issue thing otherwise i'll be here all day!)
I have researched this extensively as i have family in the US but don't want to give my job up just yet!
Whatever you do, make sure you do your homework first!
And remember that there are currently only about 4 schools in the US doing JAA licences unless your prepared to convert from FAA to JAA when you get back! get in touch if you want to know more...
