    My experience on the UK's first 5-day PPL ground school and CAA pilot exams with Ice Helicopters

    My experience on the UK's first 5-day PPL ground school and CAA pilot exams with Ice Helicopters

    I was on the UK's first PPL ground school intensive course delivered in just 5-days by Ice Helicopters at London Elstree aerodrome EGTR! Listen now to find out more about why I decided to take the PPL ground school training course to convert from aeroplanes to helicopters, the private pilot exam training received on each day, how 200 hours of pilot training was crammed into just 5 days, my brutally honest feedback on the course structure and the all-important results from the students who took some or all of the CAA PPL helicopter exams.
    This is a must-listen for all private pilot student pilots currently going through aviation ground school for either aeroplanes or helicopters!
