Hey guys!

Does anybody know anything about this school?

They seem to be quite cheap and okey?

Anyone has any experience with them?

Hey Daco!!

i've done my training with them!! i finished my time building, IR, CPL and ME in 7months and it was during winter time! i was pretty impressed! their staff were so helpful and the prices they offered were the cheapest i found in Europe. Also there was so much to do in my free time. Brno was a great place to be in and if i had the opportunity i would go back there again!! their website is euro-pilot.com i believe. just send them an email and have a look for yourself but i would definitely recommend to go there!!

No, seven months is NOT brilliant.
After timebuilding I did my CPL/IR/ME training/ratings in 2months and I know for sure that it was not a fast track!, my schoolmasters were not the best in organizing.
So, letīs say you were not fast either, and did that training in two months like me. That leaves you with 5 months to do the timebuilding. I guess you needed 100hours, but maybe 90 or less. If you flew 2 1/2 hours pr.day the days you flew (minimum I would say). = 40days
5 months are 153 days, minus 40 days gives you 113 days. Doing what?
That is 16weeks, 31/2 months!!

well, lets go about it this way yak55.. i was more than happy with the school.. most of the process got delayed because of weather restricitions. if you had a problem with the Academy fair enough go about saying it, but i give them the respect they owe for all the hard work they put into giving the students a great service and professional training. And worth mentioning the social activities they organised for us all!! definitely worth every penny!!

I didnīt have a problem with FA, I had problems with them. And so did everybody I met over there. Big and small. Some were solved, some were not. Anyway, I was far from happy with them. About your problem par345, weather restrictions must be a part of the whole picture when youīre considering where to your training. Right? Time is money isn't it?

Well yes weather is something you're looking at when choosing where to do your training but Czech Rep. was the cheapest option i found, aircraft availability was good and considering it was the worse winter for a while, i was happy with the way things worked out. Shame you only seem to have negative words about the Academy.

Iīm a former student of FA. I rate the school a little bit differently than PCA20, my scale is 0 to 10 (10 is best) Maybe his scale is different.
Organization 3
Theory 2
Instructors 4 (average)
Aircrafts 2
Staff 4 (stuff?, I donīt know)
Academy 1

Anyone can ask me anything, I speak English

AlfaSierra, can you explain a little more in details. What exactly is bad.
Cuz it's really hard to get something from your digits.
2 for the planes – what wrong with planes? They not flying or what? Bad maintenance?

Thanks.

PCA20

Thanks for the information.
Such question – what is the plane for ME they use and where does it located? I can't find Hradetz

I can explain my rating for the aircrafts... 1. The planes they donīt have.: They do not have any twin for ME training, they do not have any complex plane for CPL training.
2. They have C152's and C172's from the 70īs (common! itīs 2010 now) All the planes have problems, from leaking (one even had a petrol leak) to serious engine problems. 3. Instruments and radios are old and breaking down all the time.
4. Maintenance is done by Mat and Pat.
They get credit for the Archer they rent for IR training.

The ME you can make in Hradetz Kralove is in NW from BRNO, the school is in the airport, they can give you some acomodation and that's very good, its exactly in the airport, near then you think, i mean near the runway . A very good advice, do not go there without car!!!

AlfaSierra

Man, i don't know what you've thinking when you came at school, did you think they will expect you with flowers and red carpet and a limo and stuff like this ? I mean c'mon is just an school is not a office building like WTC(was). They planes are good, yes are old but good. If you don't like to fly with 152 and 172 why you don't fly with PIPER ARCHER III or CIRRUS SR20-G2, you have this option and you know that. Instructors 4? Why ? Couse they are young or they try to make somthing becouse they cannot fiind some airline ? From my side at FA are very good instructors. In fact Nicholas Beck is a young instructor but he know how to explain everything, there are no questions and nothing with that airplane that he cannot make. Zapletal Vojta, is in the same page, young but very very good, i mean i learn all the theory with him. Boris(the aerobatic guy) he is not young but trust me...its really good . So where is that AVRG are you talking about ? Have fun and clear sky mate

But you can tell him honest at DSA will be 3 years and at FA will be 1 year an 3 months . Before i get in FA, i asked about DSA and they tell me there are only cz languague course and will be like 3 years. And i say of course NOT. maybe the things have changed but i don't think so.

Well, I presumed he had his theory done. DSA provides any practical training, and they speak English, for sure.

Hey guys,

please watch out that some users on this thread have worked with FA before and just because things went bad (due to their own personal fault) they are trying to prove a point a fill you all with lies.

In some of my previous posts I said CSA, of course it was supposed to be DSA. I apologize for this mistake.
