Basair would not be my recommendation. They are experienced with foreign students but have had quite a few incidents. If you really want to learn rather than just get the licence, consider the smaller schools rather than a "college".

There are lists of flying schools in the AOPA magazine and RAAus schools in the RAAus magazine. ( With Contact details). It might be worthwhile to call the Ballarat Aero Club (Talk to the CFI) and there was a school in Perth that was set up to do this sort of training and had some good qualified staff. ( I don't have the name , sorry but ask around). Training to ME/CIR doesn't come too cheaply, but that is what's needed. Nev

You could try CPL plus AG (cropduster) rating and get a job for a while. I don't know what the demand is. If you are going to work in I/F I wouldn't consider single engine unless it was a Cessna Caravan or a Pilatu, or suchlike. Nev

I am not so sure about Basair- their was a wonderful instructor there last year called George.

 

George was ex F111 and Blackhawk pilot and I found him excellent. I think he was the exception to the rule however. He may still be there or may have left to earn money.

 

But he would be choice- not many ever have such experience in the right seat to guide them. Been trained by someone with thousands of command hours in such a eclectic mix of aircraft was awesome. A far cry from a newly minted instructor. Pity I never was able to finish with him due to money and health hassles.

In George I trust.

Was that when the autopilot was called "George"? The Catalina pilots used to trust in Mr Pratt & Mr Whitney. Nev

No Nev.

George was a real pilot. He was a F111 pilot and then as the impending retirement of the "pigs" was apparent he went over to the Army boys and did Black Hawks for a while. George figured nothing would compare to the F111 with wings so went rotary after that.

 

He went to do instructing as he felt his skills would allow him to pay back some time to the industry by training -which he really enjoyed. I know he was paid a pittance and probably has left by now.

 

Flying with George was a real pleasure- definitely a lot different to a low hour instructor.

 

HE did have a lot of concerns with the direction training for GA and CPL has gone.

 

If he is still doing training somewhere, he would be a brilliant person to have in the right seat.

In Thrust we Trust.

I'm not trying to put down any real person called George.. If he is as you say and portray, I'm sure he and I would agree on many thing includuding the lamentable "dumbing down " of the art of flying, and we would enjoy a beer together. However "george" was the colloquial name given to the autopilot, which helped a lot of " ordinary' pilots to get through the day. Nev
