Candidate Feedback And Reviews

 Candidates Share Their Views Of Learning Through heliguy™ Learning Management System

"One of the best courses I have done"

"The online training is one of the best courses I have ever done, and I have done a few. It is up to you how quickly you want to learn, but the thought process and the attention to detail on the online course was fantastic.  When I attended the Flight Test, yes I was nervous, but was made to feel at ease very quickly. I would highly recommend heliguy™ for the online training course. The fact they actually talk to you on the phone, and when you need to ask a question they are there for you."  Charlotte Graham.

"Highly recommended - 10/10"

"The video and remote exam was great and easy to understand – also demonstrating how adaptable heliguy™ is given the current pandemic. The examiner clearly explained how the remote exam process was going to work, and what was expected of me. We also had a great and informative Q&A at the end, where I could ask some questions about other courses heliguy™ offers, and how to update my Operations Manual going forward. Very helpful and constructive experience – highly recommended. 10/10."  James D’Arcy Bean.

"Great online A2 CofC training course"

"Great online A2 CofC training course supported by videos and the handbook. Appreciate the ability to repeat training sections if needed, and to self-assess progress and understanding by the online section quizzes. Well set up and briefed online theory exam, with the personal touch as no classroom sessions available. A pleasant learning experience with the heliguy™ Training Team." Chris Caswell.

"I listened to the training podcasts while jogging"

"Halfway through the heliguy™ A2 CofC and I’m absolutely delighted with the online course. It is top class, laid out in such a way, breaking down the course into modules. Loved the videos and podcasts that take you through this process. I’ve spoken to the trainers many times with questions and they took the time to answer them. One of the memories that will stick with me will be listening to one of the training podcasts, while getting my daily jogging exercise."  JC.
