Best R22 rates in SA

Unread post by mercywing1 » Fri Jun 21, 2019 12:58 pm

Hey guys
Where and which school in the country has the best RH-22 rates for hour building?

I have 122 hours remaining to build for CPL-H.

I know its currently between 3800 to 5100 p/h.

I worked and saved the money over the last 7 years, and just want to use the saved money wisely up to CPL.

Any input is sincerely appreciated.

Not saying one way or another because I know its expensive to fly and I have heard good things about JNC (so nothing against them), but wow... its pricey to fly RW these days! No wonder the industry is shrinking (unsubstantiated :wink: )...

Keeping current is another story...

Not a bad price considering it includes 15% vat.

Relatively I agree and again nothing against JNC... but doing just a couple of hours a month being over ZAR 8,000 a month is allot of money for the ordinary person to afford...

Helicopters have never been cheap. Before Frank Robinson brought the R22 to life there where a lot less options and helicopter pilots.
