How to pick a helicopter flight school near Clewiston, FL
Try to determine whether the helicopter fleet is being well maintained. In my book, maintenance is much more important in helicopters than it is in airplanes. There are a lot of pieces that can fall off an airplane and leave it flying. There are not nearly so many pieces in a helicopter. Of course, it can be very hard for someone who doesn't know about helicopters to determine whether the maintenance is good at a particular school.
