Both companies have former staff members that now run their own schools. Their recommendations carry a lot of weight to their previous employers.

Cheers.

I watched these guys daily, as I was doing MIFR training next door. I would be sitting in a light twin going over procedures & get distracted & daydream about being the one flying the R22... :?

By the way, are those the guys who had the accident last year? & if so how's the instructor who was on board doing? Sounds like he was in rough shape...

The instuctor is a friend of mine and he is doing good, He spent a few weeks in hospital and then was released. Still not back at work though but i'm sure will be in no time. He has no plans on giving up. Yeah it was the same company.
