How to Pick a Helicopter Flight School for Casselberry, FL
Get a tour of the facility. Try to get a feeling for whether this is a well organized school or not. Is it a single helicopter school, or does the school have multiple helicopters? If the school only has a single helicopter, you will have a more difficult time scheduling in it, and mechanical difficulties will cause lessons to be cancelled whereas with multiple helicopters often another helicopter can be substituted. Also, as a rule of thumb single helicopter schools are less likely to be around a few years later when you want to rent their helicopter.
