  2. Rotorspeed Are you a lawyer?? You can sure sling the fast questions and twist the facts to make a rock a gold bar. We train pilots to the absolute best that we can we go out of our way to try to get them there first job out of school. How they deal with the job is up to them. We all know that it is more than flying skill that helps you in the industry and we can not control a pilots attitude although we try to teach it. Above and beyond I say. We are just starting a very busy training schedule and will be busy for the next few months that makes my instructors happy and keeps our engineers busy. Hopefully we are successful in providing the industry with safe and proficient pilots as we have in the past. I am not going to get into the 300 or Robinson debate it has been done here before. I have trained with both in my 25 year training career and I know which machine teaches power management and aircraft control better. I really dislike the pi##ing matches that go on in this forum and I am done with this one. We have all had the tough road to haul some continued some gave up. You are guaranteed not to make it if you give up. One thing that you did say Rotorspeed (two day member to the forum) which I do agree with are three short words. JUST KEEP GOING....All the Best.

  3. We had five graduates working the canyon this summer and I had 4 positions lined up for them if they wanted, it with a reputable company. Only 2 pursued these leads and they got jobs. The issue with our American neighbors is the undercutting of prices. I have used The 300 for training and I know what they charge. I don't know how they can make a go of it at those rates. Richard is not only a great instructor he also documented almost everything that we did at the school and the 80 % rate is not BS. If Red Eagle wants to compete fairly then they should check out the rates of some of the schools in Canada. Remember one shouldn't take shots unless they know the facts. Our facts are documented. All the Best Cheers PRJB
  4. I don't know of any school in Canada that trains 50 guys year. We train 15. - 20 students a year. We have had courses where they all got a job. Right out of school. Not sure that Red Eagle has done anything like that. Oh yeah they have an FAA license so there is no way they can offer job placement in Canada. Cheers PRJB
  5. With an average of 80% hiring rate I would defenately not call us a Puppy-mill. Our instructors are all experienced in the Canadian market and after the students have a license we use every resource to get our students jobs. If you want to be trained by a low time instructor. Filll your boots. Just remember you get what you pay for. All the Best Cheers PRJB

  12. U.s Flight Schools In Canada

    This Post was started to let all the flight school operators in Canada know what is happening to the Canadian flight school market. From all the calls and pm's I have recieved word is getting out and this FAA flight school attempting to operate in Canada is not all that popular in everyones eyes. If you would like to start a post on your 10 questions then start another post. Your attempt to suck up to the readers and change the reasoning of this post to try to make yourself seem like a conerned instructor are not working. You also did a, how did twinkieguy put it, "classy" representation of Frank Robertson's name by calling him Roberson. I'm sure that made Frank shake in his boots. I have a question for the auhor of the mountain flying Book that TG is going on about. How does one accumulate 25,000 hours in a 20 year period? That is an icredible feat I must say. Must have done a lot of time building with friends i guess. Do the math... this guy was busy. Another erroneous fact about the R22 not able to do autorotations or stuck pedals to the ground are a little off. I wonder what you would call the autos that we do to the ground at an area which is 4000'ASL. I have flight trained in 47's, 300's and R22's I know the cost of operating these machines. My question to the FAA operator is what are you skimpping on, because there is no profits in the rates that you are using if you are operating fair. Something is is being neglected, mainrtenance, crew pay, or something. Tell us how you do it. And finally you are not the only school who rents there helicopters to graduates, we do as well, with an efficient safety screening program we know the pilots who take our machines out will be safe. Although we find that graduates who want to build time would rather go with an instructor to learn more instead of flogging around making silly mistakes and creating bad habits. I may get some grief for the TwinkieGuy call but I think Frank ROBERTSON would appreciate it. Cheers PRJB

    Then when you want to speak to a Canadian Flight School that is all that and even more.(15years of experience in this area, and over 25 years instructing experience). Go next door. They'll give you the real facts, not the sales pitch..... Cheers PRJB
