Private Pilot Course

workimg
The private pilot course is first step that you will take in your career path. In this course, you will learn how to safely maneuver the helicopter and take passengers on flights after you acquire your Private Pilot Certificate.

The Private Pilot course is divided into three stages. In the first stage you will learn how to do the basic maneuvers and start to develop your aeronautical decision making skills. In stage two, you will acquire all the knowledge and skills necessary to operate and fly the helicopter by yourself; this is referred to as solo flying. In the next stage, you will go on dual (with Instructor) and solo cross country flights and prepare for the FAA Practical test. When you successfully complete and pass your FAA Practical tests, also known as your Check ride, you will be a certified private pilot. The minimum hours required by the FAA is 40 hours of flight training; however, the average student normally completes his or her certificate between 60-70 hours. Your goal is to be safe, and our goal is to provide professional training that you will make you a safe and competent helicopter pilot

Instrument Rating Course

After you complete your private pilot certificate, the next step is to get your Instrument Rating. In this course, you will learn how to fly the Helicopter in IMC – Instrument meteorological conditions; when there are visual obstructions such as fog, haze, clouds etc.

The Instrument course is divided into three stages.
In stage one, you will learn how to do the basic flight maneuvers using only information from the flight instruments; you will be wearing an IFR goggles that limits your outside visual references – this simulates actual IFR weather. In stage two, you will learn how to do Instrument Departures, Enroute Procedures, and different types of Instrument approaches. In stage three, you will take everything that you have previously leant in stages one and two, and do actual instrument cross-country flights.

Flight Instructor Courses

Flight Instructor (CFI), Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII)

Your first career step is likely to be working as a flight instructor. The Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) Rating is required if you want to instruct other pilots. The Certified Flight Instructor - Instrument (CFII) builds on our Certified Flight Instructor Rating by allowing you to teach instrument flight in helicopters.

Since most pilots’ first job is working as a certified flight instructor, this Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) Rating provides you with additional instruction opportunities.

Why do most pilots get a Flight Instructor certificate/rating?

Having a CFI and CFII rating, allow you to be competitive in the job market, and that will give you the most opportunities in the future. Most helicopter companies prefer that their pilots are also Instructors, so that they can train their new hires as well. But most importantly, they know that Flight Instructors receive more training and have advanced skills.
