Heliaviation Flordia, Niclas Herle Theft of Cash / Intentional Fraud and Credit Card Fraud two times Sarasota Florida
CAUTION: THIS GUY IS A SERIOUS CRIMINAL. Do NOT use this school if you're serious plan to get an flight licence!
I've paid him $6.600 cash to use for the flight hours, with the kind request to confirm this. He had a lot of excuses when I asked him to give me a recipe. After that, i took several flight hours, he charged my debit card with $301,70, which i've expressly forbidden. After that, i kindly asked him to send the money back, because it's only my Gas and Food Card, it’s not that much money just for my daily use. The return of course never happened.
On my last day there i was scheduled to have a further flight. Then the flight instructor discovered during our pre-flight procedure an irregularity at the R22 aircraft, the hobbs hasn't changed after i took a flight the day before. But there was another flight in the aircraft logbook. So the flight instructor decided not to fly, until this obvious FAA violation has been cleared, because he didn’t want lose his license that he made in the past years. Then he tried to reach the guy Herle on the phone, but he didn't picked up. So the flight teacher texted him. To make a long story short. Mr. Herle yelled through the text to the flight instructor, why he's doing that in front of the student and he has to grab his stuff and leave the company - immediately. The people around this flightschool are sure, he wants to extend the maintenance of the R22 aircraft to save a lot of money because of the high maintenance costs and the charge for the flights which are not logged is quick black money for his own private pocket. After he kicked the flight instructor out, he aborted my training also - took my cash and charged my debit card with the maximum amount of $1.200 for the second time.
This criminal has a pattern. First he try’s to make some kind of nice impression and then he'll kick you out and he'll take all your money. And if you try to contact him to get your money back: he freaked completely out, he yelled at me and screamed like a wild gone rabies monkey, with his insults in the worst kind of way, i'm glad that he didn't jump at me in his highly aggressive attitude and injured me. Finally you'll get a trespassing restraining order from him, This is done very quick.
Finally, after i had time to research and google this guy, i found out, that he had always trouble and law suits with a bunch of flight instructors, students, the sarasota airport facility, with are his neighbors at the airport, private in his house at the lakewood ranch with the guys who worked there (electricity-, landscaping, network etc. companies) and he is always looking for trouble or get into a fight. I can only recommend for everybody, watch out for another flight school or flight service company, in the end you don't want to sit with someone in an manipulated aircraft you cannot trust!
