I'm in U.K and want to train and qualify as a helicopter pilot. Where is the best place to do that fairly quickly and what sort of cost?
I am thinking that a short intensive course would be best as I have a lot of free time at the moment.
I have about £35,000 available but have an apartment that could be sold for about £90,000 if necessary.
After qualifying where is the best place to get work (any flying work) in order to build up the flying hours ?
( The RAF is not an option - I am too old for that )

The problem you will have is that most pilot jobs are taken by pilots leaving
the forces who have a large number of hours.

if you're relatively young and healthy, getting licensed and educated (in a traditional 4 year schooling sense) will potentially cost you your savings and apartment. on the other hand, you'd probably make that back in a handful of years if you're confident you have the intellectual skills and time to learn.
