If the school is worth their salt, they should be willing to let you charter after passing the requisite class.



If they won't, you picked the wrong school.
And many do.

Re: ASA vs Offshore Sailing school

Mmmm, your thinking is not far off, but at the end of a course i ask myself the question, would a let them leave with my boat? If the answer is NO, then i can't give them there certificat.
Also not every one learns the same.
Yes the school should be good and i consider myself a pretty good instructor but i have not seen many student who would qualify to charter a boat after the basic keelboat 101 course.
Also to get into other course you do have to have prerequisites of at least 80 hours of sailing time.

And lastly, i would not get into a plane with a pilot fresh out of a 2 weeks fast track course. No way!. Get some hours under your belt.

Actually, that's the best time, everything is freshly learned and you just passed your FAA checkride. Your never more likely to be doing everything by the book as you are just after your practical test.

(who does weight and balance calcs for their typical flight loading after their checkride?)
