Re: GO PRO AND HD SUNGLASSES

Hey, This is why I ask. A couple of you have instructed and I can appreciate your opinions. During my re search trying to learn as much as I can, I find the youtube videos are very helpful for me "chair flying" I see in many of the videos that the image that is being recorded is simply a video "self...

Re: GO PRO AND HD SUNGLASSES

Well in the end I am about to pay a lot of money for this training. If I feel I can benefit from simply mounting a gopro or buying a pair of those HD video recording sunglasses then I think that should be perfectly acceptable. Even if I use it to show friends or family or to have for my personal col...

Re: GO PRO AND HD SUNGLASSES

My goal is to have a great understanding before beginning m...

Re: GO PRO AND HD SUNGLASSES

IMO, i would be against it, Distraction, may be sitting uncomfortably to take a video, uncomfortable, not going to learn, waste of time Im also not one for video/picture cameras A goPro camera is mounted and hd sunglasses are worn. No one would actually be doing the video recording by hand. Cat Dri...

Re: GO PRO AND HD SUNGLASSES

well of course I will be focusing on the training but having a video recording of everything that happened as well as the audio between me and my instructor to keep for my own collection as well as at home review seems like a great idea to me. Just not sure how to sell the instructor on that, I am n...

GO PRO AND HD SUNGLASSES

Starting my flight training soon and was just thinking about how nice it would be to have a go pro or a set of HD VIDEO RECORDING SUNGLASSES to record each lesson so at home I can watch and review as well as have for my personal collection. Is this something flight instructors may have an issue with...

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU DO :)

^ I agree. It was naïve of me to go to the flight training school next to my job at the airport and inquire about flight training. They provided me with a print out of the above chart and said these are the steps to becoming a private and commercial licence holder. I looked at it as perfect, a break...

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU DO :)

I found there breakdown to be very straight forward, however now I understand it is not set up properly and would like to remake it so I know wh...

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU DO :)

Thank you everyone! I have decided to look around for another school. I found one out in the country that is a lower per hour cost as well as not being at a busy location waiting for clearance and such is not an issue in return allowing you to maximise the time spent flying. I thought the above list...

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU DO :)

This is exactly what he sent me in my email -_- The following table outlines the program costs. Once the Private Pilot License is achieved, the order of the course may be varied based on personal preference and the time of year (weather). Most of the PIC time building will need to be completed prior...

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU DO :)

Thank you for the reply.

If I do that and I complete it in just the few months, how often afterwards would you recommend I fly until I can financially afford to commit to the commercial portion?
