Sky Monkey Posted June 27, 2009 Report Share Posted June 27, 2009 Hello I'm looking to get into commercial helicopter aviation, and one pilot suggested that I look into New Zealand schools. For about the same amount of money, I can get 150 hours of flying time split between piston and turbine helicopters, a mountain rating, and a night endorsement compared to the 100 hour program most schools offer here. On top of that, I would still have enough left over to convert to a Canadian license (assuming I can do that in 10 hours). But after talking to a few Canadian schools, they claim the Canadian training is more valued, despite both schools being located in similar mountain ranges. So my question is this: What is more attractive to employers... Exclusively Canadian experience, or an extra 50 hours with international experience? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
