Great instructors but TERRIBLE management, 4/18/2011

I have 10 hours on the books with Prestige from a few years back. Girlfriend bought me an $89 Living Social deal for fun in Oct, 2010. Deal expired 4/4/11, and I called 4/2/11 (I wanted to wait and... fly in Spring) and left 2 VMs, but received no call back. Called again after expiration when Jan (co-owner) was in and got a totally unnecessary beratement for 15 minutes about being a procrastinator! SERIOUSLY? They took my money and wouldn't honor the deal, even though I did call within the timeframe of the dealís validity (learn how to return calls, guys). Obviously, nobody tought these people how to respect their fellow humanity, and they have a very bad reputation of being difficult to deal with on more than one level, including how they financially treat their instructors who help sell their helicopters to students. I had similar problems with them when I was flying regularly, such as double-charging my credit card and taking 2 months to credit the redundant charge, mis-managing scheduling (I got bumped on 2 occasions, whereas I showed up, only to find there was no scheduled lesson), and other minor service-related things that left me scratching my head. Overall, the instructors I worked with were top-notch (Iíve flown with 3, all of which were excellent), and their birds are well maintained. However, the owners are complete scheisters with holier-than-thou attitudes, so I must give Prestige as a company a disgraceful rating. CAVEAT EMPTOR!

Fly Safe - Fly Smart - Fly Fun - Fly Prestige!, 9/30/2009

These guys are awesome! I've been flying with them for the past 3 years, and my experience has been wonderful! Their fleet of helicopters are very well maintained, and they carry high insurance... coverages on their aircraft. If it's helicopter related, they can do it! Their staff are very friendly, and on many occasions, went an extra mile to suite my needs. You can't go wrong flying with Prestige Helicopters!

Awesome experience

I am flying with Prestige every day of the week and have had a wonderful experience. The comment below about "shake up of management" is just weird, because it's owned by a married couple and has been for a long time. My instructor is fun and I am learning a lot. I am going to ground school weekly with a knowledgeable CFI II and couldn't ask for more.

Overpriced and unreliable

I started my training with them and had to finish elsewhere. I was bumped off the schedule. Found out only because I called instructor to tell him I was running 10 minutes late. He informed me I was no longer on the schedule. Despite that day and time being my slot for the previous two months running. The ground school was on-again, off-again. Shake up in ownership due to fight between partners. Rates went up 30% because one instructor putting bird down in lake in TN (he was on personal/pleasure trip). Finished my training elsewhere.
