anyone knows somewhere with reasonable pricing? Or is there another way?

Thanks


Thanks.
I got a share in a Robbo to get my CPL hours.

How did you do that? Do you still have the share? Do you mind me asking how much it was?

Nobody has mentioned it, but I know several pilots who started their own helicopter business to build time- USA and thirty years ago....

It was a 44 and it cost about 42k. No, I don't have it anymore but sold it for the same when finished my CPL.

Find a 22/44 and get a group together to buy it.
