Cheers chaps,

Perhaps a hangar party is indeed due Cheers!

Sean - yes, it would be good to all get together again. Interestingly, they are still advertising CPL(H) groundschool...

Now you tell me! Head Banging

Bom - the next step is to do the flying instructor course. Sadly, my bank account has other ideas so realistically it will be a year or so before I do it so in the meantime I have about 18hrs to build before my 250. I fancy a cheeky little '300 conversion too...

DB,

Lol. Sorry! Didn't know you were struggling for one!

You really should get rated on the 300, it will likely open up more opportunities for you as an instructor having R22 and 300 on your licence. More than 50% of our students are training on the Schweizer now.

Thanks Paddywak Helicopter

Sarah - I agree. I've got a few '44 trips with friends over the next few weeks then I will start playing 300s. The CBi at London Helicopters is getting a lot more interest and use these days. I joined in on a PPL student's check A lesson the other day. Having only really flown 22/44 it was a real eye-opener looking over a completely different design.

LoachBoy - anything that supports the Frazzle industry in particular is fine by me Pig

So no chance of any form of work until the instructor course is done?
