#258 Helicopter Ownership - the cost: EXPENSIVE
Day 258 Coffee with Kenny! Today I will be short and to the point about a ground school member who asked about helicopter ownership. He asked if it would cut some costs if he trained in a helicopter that he bought and then hired his own private CFI. It is extremely expensive to own and maintain your own helicopter, so this option doesn't even make sense. Its is not cost effective in my opinion. I would make sure you do your research and call your insurance company. I think you will very quickly find out that there is a substantial amount of money needed yearly.
So, I think under most circumstances, you are better off renting. If you have the money and aren't worried about it, then ok. Leave us your comments below!

Day 245 Coffee with Kenny “Just Go Around”
Welcome to day 245 Coffee with Kenny! Out on the boat tonight and what's been on my mind is Go around's, it's been awhile since I've talked about it. That's what we as instructors teach. If something doesn't feel right, just go around! If you're not liking you approach, as the PIC it's your responsibility to go in with a safe landing! If you're a student and you're not feeling the approach, most examiners should appreciate the fact that you're doing it.
I want to see you over time, to make that good decision, there is no shame whatsoever to go around! Bottom line!
