I've wanted to learn how to fly helicopters since I was a little kid (bucket list status) and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing flight school to learn from! My discovery flight was amazing! If you're even a little interested in flying, book a discovery flight and they let you fly on your very first day - talk about catching the bug!
From then on, the whole team makes the learning process fun and clear. I never feel pressured by the process, they give positive feedback and correction, its a great learning environment and a great team! Don't be surprised when you don't have your license in the bare minimum 40 hours required by the FAA -- Rogue believes in training SAFE pilots more than getting the job done fast.... they will have you flying as many hours as it take you at your pace to be trained into a SAFE and well rounded pilot. I recommend planning for closer to 60+ hours. James the Chief pilot is also a Robinson Safety course Instructor, so you're truly getting Robinson training from the pros here built into their entire curriculum! It makes me feel super good knowing the level of safety built into my training.
Now for the fun part! Most flight schools just drag students through a routine and pattern work.... but yet here at Rogue I've gotten to fly up to Brackett for brunch, out to Chino and all along the coastline - its a blast and they are always up for making training fun! After all that's why flying is so rad, right?!
Speaking of safety, I've been really impressed by the school's impeccable maintenance of their aircraft too - one little thing feels off with a ship and they've got a mechanic on it right away!
And on top of all that, they are based right at John Wayne Airport so getting the Class C airspace training here in Southern California is getting me ready to fly just about anywhere. I couldn't be more happy with my experience and I'm so close to getting my Private Heli License - all Rogue trained! After that I'm moving on to my commercial! Thanks guys!
