    You’re asking for a lot. I don’t know anyone who is familiar with all the helicopter schools in the world. I’m not even familiar with all the helicopter schools in this country or even in my state.

    You are likely to receive better training from an experienced instructor. The more experienced helicopter instructor will charge more because he is more experienced.

    The fact that he is more experienced will likely mean that you will progress faster, which would end up costing you less in the long run.

    Figure out where in the world you want to take lessons. Look at housing and cost of living. Then start researching schools in that area. Talk to students who have attended prospective schools and get their opinions on the training they received.

    If your funds are really limited, you might consider the military for training.

    The best flight courses for the money is Hillsboro Aero Academy (http://www.flyhaa.com/helicopter/courses/) I was able to use my GI bill to pay for the flight lessons, but I have had buddies who have taken out loans and paid them back within years because of the quality of training. I would recommend it to anyone.
