What is a course in helicopter training? Whether you have aspirations to be a career helicopter pilot or just want to make flying a new hobby, private pilot helicopter training courses are often a good place to start. Courses are usually a combination of flight and ground school. Students typically train one-on-one with their instructor. Each level of training can build a student’s confidence, knowledge and skill base. First, you learn the how and why of helicopter flight. You may learn to control the aircraft, how to take off and land as well as in-flight maneuvers. Once you have completed your private pilot course, you need to achieve a commercial pilot license in order to make a career out of it.

Learning to fly equips you with many valuable skills. You gain situational awareness that makes you a safer pilot and car driver. You learn to think on your feet and respond to changing circumstances quickly and confidently, which translates positively to other areas of life.

Courses may be offered by various airports large and small. Depending on where the courses are offered, costs can vary widely. Contact the organization responsible for the course for more information about costs.

There are many careers available as a helicopter pilot. Flight instructors are almost always in demand. You will need to take a course to get your instructor license. You might provide tours for a wide variety of exciting locations. Tourists usually pay top-dollar for these experiences. Many helicopter pilots join the military or work as contractors for the military.

Some helicopter training courses allow you to take ground schools and simulations online, but flight training will require you to report to a specific location. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
