|Sorry for delayed response,\
We can accomodate you up to 200 lbs.
Mostly due to the factors that were mentioned earlier. I know of other schools who will let you go with more, but you cannot always be sure that the 'math' is done correctly. IF anything should go pear shaped, there will be insurance issues if the C of G is out or if the weight is over the max.
The SEAT limit in the R22 is 240 lbs, INCLUDING the underseat storage, but the problem one runs into is that the forward center of gravity limit is reached when you burn off fuel.

As to a previous point, (WRT to GFT Aerospace in Gander).
Just because the instructors were not paid as much as others, don't mean that they were completely green... All of us had over a 1000 hours when we started there, so we knew what we were doing. We were just ignorant of the way of the REST of Canada, which we are obviously well versed in now. I have offered more than once to go back, but they were not interested in paying what I wanted, and that is ok. I actually enjoyed myself immensely while I was there, had a good time, the people were great, but obviously, once you have tasted the good stuff (cash-wise) you won't go THAT far down in pay, even if it is cheap to live in Newfoundland. If the owners would pay me what I want, I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Moot point now tho, as they got rid of their helicopter...
