FSI HKG charging full rate for classes doesn't help their cause. When you take into account airfares, it is cheaper to get the job done in LGB than HKG. A benefit of going to HKG (other than it being FSI) is that you are offline for less time. That benefit - of course - depends on your point of view!

I am not a fan of CAE DXB, having gone through one on their box-ticking courses a couple of years back. I continue to hear horror stories about the Gulfstream program there - unqualified (or absent) examiners, incorrect course enrolments, arrogant (and ignorant) instructors, no study notes... I will choose quality instruction over a biz class airfare any day!

In addition to CAE SHA, I have heard that there will be a G450/550 sim somewhere in Guangdong (Zhuhai?): locally run, aimed at B-reg mainland jets. Anyone heard anything about that?
