  1. Rotary wing: more freedom, more flexibility, more independence, more money (at least from my point of view), more fun, NO social life, NO vacation during the summer, terrible odds of having a succesfull long term relationship with anyone, worth every minute of it!


    Why 1. No social life?

    2. No vacation in summer?

    3. Not likely to have a succesfull long term realtionship?


    I'm looking for a school, but I like to have these answers first.


    Are you so much away from home that you can't have a social life/relationship???

  2. Many schools say this in their info (it's not clear to me)


    • An applicant may commence flight training at any age, but must be 14 years of age prior to first solo, 17 years of age for the issue of a private Helicopter licence, and 18 years of age for the issue of a commercial Helicopter licence.


    Does this say that when your not 18 you can start the commercial training, but you get a licence when your are 18. Or does this mean that you have to be 18 when you start this training??


    Thanks anyway for the info above

  3. Hey, Ive heard from Canadian Helicopters too, but how much does the whole training costs? I mean, for a commercial pilot licence.


    Because I'm from the Netherlands, I have too stay in Canada, so if I can save money, I want to do that.


    (sorry for the bad english)


    I've also a topic " Questions About Canadian Helicopter Training ".


    I hope you can help me with that. :up:

  4. Hey,

    Since I was 8 I want to be a helicopter pilot, but my eyes are to bad for the Europian rules. I' looked for solutions. One was the helicopter training in Canada. I found a school in Penticton, This school was connected with Canadian Helicopters.

    I've heard that Canadian Helicopters one of the best company in the world is about helicopter-work. I thought that this is a good solution. I also want to work after the training in Canada/USA.


    But I want to focus on other schools to.


    I hope you understand that it's not easy to pick a school all the way from Holland, and that I have to choose between schools on what they say on their websites and e-mail.


    Maybe you can give me other info about other schools. Or recommmendations or something. You can help me a lot with this!!!!! :up:


    My e-mail is:




    I'm looking forward to you response. :D
