#1 Post by harddeckflyer » Fri Aug 26, 2005 3:12 pm

Looking for first hand experience from training at the Algonquin Flight Centre in North Bay? I will be a private pilot in the next few weeks and am wondering about training there. I have aspirations for bush flying after and am wondering if it is the right way to get a start. Thanks

Cheers

I did the same. . . awesome pilot. He drove over 2 hours just for us. Lots of knowledge and professionalism.

Would this be of this era? Just returned from the paint shop last week. The flying pumpkin is indeed gone.

I did my PPL with them and intend to pursue my commercial along with the bush/float course. Seem to be a good school from my experience and not too pricey compared to some. They use their own manuals and are one of a couple schools in Canada that don't use "from the ground up" method. My traning was done on the cessna 152's.
