Do I have to COMPLETE Flight School before Merryweather Heist?

...or just max-out Michael's Flying skills? Of course, this is for the "Off-Shore" option on the heist.

I maxed out Michael's flying skill before the 6th lesson but Trevor won't text Michael or Franklin to come start the heist. I've not done the parachute lessons or the final test yet.

You don't have to do any of the above, but you're going to want to know how to fly the helicopter, which is what I'm sure you're having problems with. Try flying in 1st person a couple times.

No. I'm flying as well as I can (even completed all the Knife Flights and some of the under-bridges) but Trevor won't text so I can't start the heist mission

No you don't, I'm not even sure you need to do the flying school at all. It's just a tip from the game.

What triggers the heist? I'm in the same boat as the TC.

Make sure you do all the missions on each character you may have missed (barring Franklin's Lester missions).

Did you by any chance max out Franklin's shooting skill by going to an ammunation with a gun range? I had the same problem with that heist, but I didn't realize at first that I had to do that as well.

Unfortunately, the game is also still a bit buggy in regards to triggering (or failing to trigger) certain missions. Hopefully, it's just a case of you forgetting a mission or something, and not a game breaking bug :(

You don't have to have max skill on him to start it. I did do some range challenges, but I never even tried to come close to maxing his skill and the mission started fine for me. Now there may be some amount you need of course, I believe that heist has a message from Trevor "suggesting" that Franklin go get better at shooting... but I totally ignored as I already worked on some shooting skill before. Think I was around 60, maybe 80.
