I`m a fixed wing CPL guy and I`m looking to do my rotory license and I was wondering if anyone here has trained with Red Eagle in springbank?
I checked out all the schools in springbank(they all look great) and Red Eagle has the lowest prices by FAR. They are an american FAA school running in Canada which is apparently why the costs are so much lower. They have one 300 CBI and one instructor. I talked to him for a bit and went for a 30 minute discovery flight and he seemed to know what he was doing. Not that I know much about helicopters.
Am I crazy to think about training here? Should I pay up for one of the more expensive and `well known`` schools? IE, LR helicopters or MVH.
The catch is that when I`m done, I have to drive down to Kalispel MT and do my flight test and written test down there and recieve a FAA license. Then come back to canada and get the canadian license.
If I do this I save $9000....
