Jordan Posted September 30, 2007 Report Share Posted September 30, 2007 I'm thinking of getting my commercial license. I'm 19 and out of high school with some money saved up, not alot but something to start with. I have done a lot of research, but i still can't really figure out what school to go through. I'm not sure if i should get turbine time or go with piston time. I know i could get my license as cheap as 50 grand with the R22, or as expensive as 90 grand with the 206B. If i went with the turbine i would have to get about a 50,000 loan, which i am not looking forward too. Just a couple of quesions.... I'm willing to go anywhere for school, what do you think is the best place to go to get piston time? What do you think is the best piston helicoptor to get your time on? R-22? SCH 300? What about turbine time? Is is worth while to spend the extra money to have the turbine time? I know low-time pilots don't make much money, but roughly how much would a low hour-pilot make? If you have any other advise it is greatly appreciated, if i do go with my turbine time i'm thinking of going to great slave helicoptors.
