Anytime i've seen them in the hangar it was either EI-EHB or EI-EHE.

It probably depends on maintenance, I think its ?350 per hour, Can anyone tell me if this is a good price comparing other schools?

ya same price as exec helis in galway, Ive heard other schools with more expensive prices in other parts of the country though, so I spose 350 is about as low it goes.

Yea, pretty much, 10e more expensive at Weston, but infairness that is only due to surcharges, I know the guy who runs the facility at Weston, and the Heli schools in particular are going through fairly turbulent times, trying to keep the prices as low as possible, You'll just have to splash out the full 23,000e for a PPL(H) if you are interested...

I'll stick to them things wings the big things out the side. The ones that only go forward.

I still wonder how they can justify ?350 per hour. I suppose maintenance costs on the heli's is sickening.
