The typical path that someone would follow when starting their helicopter flight training is usually first obtain their PPL or (Private Pilot Certificate) which allows you act as Pilot in Command of the aircraft and fly with passengers. Students who wish to only fly for fun or on weekends may choose to stop their training at this level.
Students who aspire to work as pilots continue their flight training towards their CPL or (Commercial Pilot Certificate). This allows you to be compensated and to do certain kinds of commercial work.
Further training can lead to a CFI or (Flight Instructor Certificate) which allows an instructor to work and build time and experience whilst teaching other students.
In addition to Private and Commercial certification, an IFR or (Instrument Rating) will provide students with crucial instrument skills.
After a student obtains their Flight Instructor certificate, the CFI-I (Certified Flight Instructor with Instrument Rating) will allow an instructor to provide instrument training to other students.
Note: We offer all training as initial certificates / rating or as add-on to existing certificates.
