…getting your Private Pilot License of course!
And that’s just what Chris did today – in perfect form of course!
You may have read about Chris on our Pilot Profiles page. He started at the school in May and has been attending part-time (most recently full-time) with the goal of getting his CFI here at North Andover Flight Academy.
Chris travels from the Cape Cod area, and happens to drive past quite a few helicopter schools on the days he isn’t staying up here with some of our other pilots. Several people have commented on Chris’ ability to retain knowledge related to aviation, and this shows in the fact that he enrolled in our Part 141 Instrument course even before he completed his private pilot helicopter license!
So Chris has already completed a good part of his ground requirement for the instrument, and he just passed his Private Pilot checkride today. He’s enjoyed most of his time with his flight (and instrument ground) instructor – Locutis, though I’m sure he will fly with his (now old) private pilot helicopter instructor at some point during his instrument training
As you probably can see, that’s the advantage of the Part 141 helicopter instrument training at our Boston helicopter school – you can jumpstart your training after the private and move right into the commercial with an advanced rating.
So what is Chris’ new goal? The instrument rating of course. Like most of our students, he’s going to take some time off before getting going on the instrument.
See you day after tomorrow!
