Recommended Heli school for PPL in Manchester, UK?

As the title says anyone got any good recommendations on training schools in Manchester, specifically at City Aiport/Heliport?

Thanks in advance.

There are two other schools flight academy and High Peak Helicopters

High Peak Helicopters being the longest established who have being training on the airfield for over 20 years. Two very high time instructors and an R44 with an auto pilot, one of only 5 or 6 in the UK.

Just to throw another into the mix, I'm training with John at Bickerstaff Aviation based at Beeston Manor near Blackburn. He has an R22 and is very thorough and an all round good guy!
I'm not sure exactly where you are, but when I was looking I thought of Blackpool and Manchester as they are the most likely places, if you are doing the same but actually live closer to Blackburn then John would be a cracking bet!

Just lobbing in my bit, enjoy the flying.

I believe a Cabri G2 is coming to the North West, a great choice of training helicopter.
