I’m looking at a brochure/publication that I picked-up at an airport but your rates on the AD are not the same as the rates on the website? Where can I get the most current rates? On the web?

How is the weather and winds at El Monte? Will I be able to practice in calm wind when I start my flight training?

February 9, 2010

YES— For initial training El Monte is the BEST airport. You can check the weather for all the airports in the LA Basin in the morning. The winds are nice and calm and the sky conditions are usually great or fair for training. In the afternoon the winds will pick up gradually just enough to enhance the training. Elsewhere, you would always have to be blown around by the wind and not understand if it you or the wind that’s flying the aircraft.

A friend has told me that I can save a lot of money if I get my airplane certificate first; then a helicopter certificate. Is that true?

February 7, 2010

YES and NO— The total flight and ground instruction time that a student needs to obtain a pilot certificate varies due to various factors. The dominant factor is always the student’s motivation. The next factor would be how the instructor guides the student through his/her training. Generally speaking, in the long run, it’s not going to make a big difference. If you happen to save a lot, then we would say that you are one of the few exceptions.
