We’ve had our share of pilots going through our instrument rating and ATP program here at our Part 141 helicopter school outside Boston Mass. Training at our helicopter school has the following advantages:
1. A Part 141 Instrument Training Program;
2. A Robinson R22 instrument trainer with a Garmin 430 and HSI combination;,
3. ILS, VOR and GPS approaches at our own airport;
4. A VOR 1.5 miles from our airport;
5. Multiple examiners;
Why go elsewhere?
This day, in particular was a very unusual day in the New England area for this time of year, so it was easy to take advantage and log hours of instrument training time flying around Boston and Nashua, NH.
Today we departed Lawrence and shot the VOR 32 approach into the Nashua Airport, followed by a missed approach and vectors to the ILS 14 at Nashua. A quick break at the Midfield Cafe (thanks Sandy), and it was off for more instrument approaches back into Lawrence Airport.
After the flight into Nashua, we parted for a quick break before heading back up into the night for more approaches. With the help of controllers at Lawrence, we were able to complete 3 approaches – a localizer, GPS, and VOR approach (full approaches with holds), in just 1 hour!
Stop by sometime and check out our facilities – with multiple CFII’s and instrument helicopters, we can help you get your instrument rating quickly and on a budget!
