errece Posted June 23, 2011 Report Share Posted June 23, 2011 Hi, I live in Southeast Saskatchewan and I'm trying to get a private pilot licence. Since there are no training schools in Saskatchewan I had to ask some schools in Manitoba that are around 4 and half hours away which would allow me to leave home on a friday afternoon train Sat and Sun and be back on Sunday night, but incredibly I found schools that will not work on the weekends or holidays, actually they only train Mon-Fri 7-5, so I was asking myself, how is anybody looking for a Private Pilot licence ever going to get it with that schedule? It makes no sense to me. Some other schools had no CFI's availabe and others only train on 206's, but $1000 an hour is not a good idea for a hobby. So I ended up contacting a school in Calgary, which is 9 hours away, that is willing to train on weekends and Holidays. I'm planning on doing 8-10 hours of training on every trip there and eventually get my licence. I hate the fact of spending that extra money on traveling expenses compared to travelling to MB. Now you now if you're planning on training in MB you probably should be self-employed, unemployed or willing to pay for Turbine training.
