Helicopter PPL Training

If you already hold a "full" (standalone) FAA Pilot Certificate (PPL, CPL, ATP), you don't even need to take any knowledge test at all.

And if you do not hold any US Pilot Certificate, or only Foreign-based pilot certificates, we can help you get your knowledge test thanks to our intensive PPL Ground School sessions.

During 3 weeks spread over 2 month (average), you not only learn the basics of piloting, as well as night flying, but all emergency maneuvers that will make you a careful and proficient pilot.

The training group consists of 3 instructors for 4 students.
Each day, two or three short but intensive flights, theory, and good time spend between pilots.

At the end of your training, thanks to the FAA administration, we organize your checkride in Europe. You take the test with an FAA inspector/examiner.
