Looking for Suggestions. I live in Atlanta, Ga. I've been flying for just at two years and have my commercial Instrument rating in the Cabri G2 and R44 with just shy of 200hrs total. I've been wanting to fly with my father since passing my private pilot check ride. Google turned up only charter services and I cannot find a decent place to rent one. Any information would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

Anyplace that instructs in an R44. You’ll have to rent it with a CFI more than likely. Hardly any places will let you rent a helicopter and take a passenger up by yourself.

Why can't you just rent from your school?

My current flight school is a state university, and the way it was explained to me was since the aircraft are under the state's insurance, they cannot be rented. Only used for flight training.

You have to solo during training for further certification. Like cross country time. Rent from them in furtherance on ongoing training, and take your a Dad on that trip unless they have a no passengers rule.

Well, if you two are up for a road trip, you'd probably find a school in Florida who will rent to you,...after a lengthy checkout of course.

Here are some local schools. As stated above, there will likely be a checkout required. But then that's more time in the logbook.
