As far as the Bay Area goes, there are no other "closest" options to SF or Oakland...... BTW, Hayward is close to Oakland so you'd need to clarify what your boss means when she says "too far".......

If you can trust two idiots who barely know how to fly to safely solo in TH67s and 58A/Cs from the 60s you should be able to trust them in a helicopter that practically flies itself.

Hearing rumors you can now solo in the UH-72A. Is that a recent change in IERW?
