just wondering why you decided to go with Bristow?
just asking because i plan on going to florida to do my cpl, but cant decide on which school to go to!
Of course bristow has the advantage over the resr because it does the JAR, but from what i have heard it is a bit of a pilot factory?
turning through huge numbers of students?
As for the school, my instructor was extremely professional, along with the other 20-30 other instructors. Yes they do have a high number of students - most of what I could see were CPL integrated students there on J1 Visas doing the long haul and going straight through CPL into FI. It's a good circuit as it means there are more FIs available rather than pumping out CPL level students with lower hours and not as much experience as the guys are getting from staying there and finishing out the 2 Years of the J1.
I don't believe that they should be called a pilot factory - HAI/Bristow Academy has had a huge reputation for putting the student first..
If you want to read up on pilot factories, do some research on Silver State Helicopters
