Squirrel Training Sunshine Coast

Postby Ghost Air » Wed Sep 18 2019, 00:50

Ghost Air operates on the Sunshine Coast under the AOC of BlueTongue Helicopters. We are slowly building in the SE Qld area and have 3 x Gd 1 Instructors flying on an ad-hoc basis. We will soon commence Squirrel training courses or "endorsements' in pre-Part 61 speak. Our AS350-D model squirrel is fresh out of 600hrly/24 monthly maintenance. Standard competency based training will also include a ground course component over a combined 1.5-2 day period. Aircraft cost $1800/hr + GST. As an additional bonus, receive all theory for free which will include a 2-3 hour Electronic Flight Bag training course at no extra cost.

or could post on here to the target market for no cost?

cheers for posting wish I was in the market for an endorsement. I'd jump at the chance at a fair rate like that.... pop;

Those Squirrel rates were what was charged back in around the mid 2000’s.
And people wonder why the industry is In a state.

Keep in mind that $1800 in 2006 is worth almost $2400 in today’s money, thanks to inflation

Thanks to all those who have enquired so far, we will continue this offer until the new year. Competitive rate yes, bare in mind this is a D-model Squirrel and hence the hourly rate is not that of a B2/B3. Less power than other squirrels makes it perfect to learn the machine before jumping into something with bigger margins though. :)
