I'm pretty new to the forum and have been browsing through and have found some really good info.
I am currently working in Australia, saving towards my CPL(H) and hopefully Instructors rating. The plan is to move to the UK to do it as my fiancée is from Northern Ireland and wants to get back closer to home.
At this stage I am looking at training at either Whizzard helicopters in Welshpool or Tiger in Shobdon. Have had trial flights with both and both seem really good. Has anyone trained at either of these schools? If so how did you like it?
Any advice would be hugely appreciated, as I'm sure all of you know what a huge investment a CPL(H) is.
How did you find the training at Welshpool? They seemed very helpful and forthcoming with info and advice when I went for a trial flight. Also the academy scheme is a big draw card.
I'm currently about halfway through my PPL(A) here in OZ (as the nearest heli school is 4 hrs drive away) but the school I'm at isn't particularly helpful or thorough, so I want to make sure the school I do my Heli license at isn't like that.
I just stumbled on to Veritair's website the other day and am waiting to hear back from them, will be interesting to see what they will be offering.
Never been to Whizzard, but did take a few trial lessons at Tiger, very nice bunch but a little out of the way for me. Just visit as many schools as you can and get a feel for which is right for you, I'm sure you'll make the right decision.
