Have hear two mixed reviews 1. Great aircraft and scheduling not a problem most of the time,
2. Most of the instuctors are Spansish and can be quite hard to understand.
Would be gratefull to hear any more before i decide to start my ppl with them
A few spanish instructors.
2 brand new a/c though
If you want some advice on who to do your PPL with.
I'd reccomend Flightwise in weston.
Only disadvantage is that we've only 1 a/c at the moment but are due a 4 seater soon i hope.
Instructors in FW are excellant and scheduling is excellant as it's all online!! It's the only FTO in weston that makes sure you dont spend any more yoyo's than you need. They do genuinely care, unlike most FTO's which are just after money.... EG: S-T
Jeff, the CFI, is a hard man to please and rightly so - I realised that after bricking it for my flight test only to be asked by the examiner who my instructor was because I was so well prepared.
PPL students, back then anyway, were given priority on weekends - that and the weather would explain why it took so long for you to do your intro ciaran. I was working Sun-Wed at the time, so I was booked in almost every Thursday and Friday and it still took me 9 months to do my PPL - that's the Irish weather for ya lads!
By all accounts Flightwise are pretty good too - my only problem was fitting my 6'3" frame into a Grob while still allowing full and free control movement - the Robins are the best aircraft in Weston in this respect imho, helped by having a stick rather than a yoke.
It is true that most of the instructors are all Spanish but I've had no problem understanding them, they are all proficient in English.
The staff are friendly.
No coffee machine (must have spent at leat 2hrs worth of flying on coffee from the resturant upstairs by now)
Only problem is if more than one plane is out of commission for maintenance then slots can be hard to come by, however most of the time not too bad, I fly weekends so I just keep booking 2 weeks in advance.
