Any Canadian Helitorquers here, or has anybody been to Calgary?

I'm going there for a holiday in August and I'm looking for somewhere to hire an R44 and an instructor to do a little flight around the local area. Well, it seems too good an oppoertunity to miss. Heli Boy

I've done a search on t'internet but a personal recommendation is always better - any top tips folks?

Thanks in advance.

Mountain View Helicopters are based at Springbank airport in Calgary. It's where Logan did his CPLH last year. They use 22's and 44's and all their Instructors are well respected in the industry as they have worked as pilots doing various roles as well as instructing. They have a good safety record and are authorized Robinson repairers. Check out their web site.

I'm off to British Columbia next door to Alberta to start my CPLH training in September.
May see you there depending on how long you're there for. If you like Chinese food check out the Silver Dragon restaurant in downtown Calgary it was very good when I was there.

Enjoy your holiday DB

Thanks for that paddywak - just what I was looking for. I'll have a peek at the website.

In the meantime, all other recommendations gratefully received Hot Sun

Likely too late seeing as your Holliday was in august! I would take a look around springbank as there are now 3 schools there, one that even operates a 300 for a good price I hear!
