Private Pilot License – Helicopter

General

Program Description

Privileges

With the Private Pilot License you’ll be able to pilot helicopters for tourism.

Pre-requisites

To obtain aeronautical licenses, you must not have criminal records, nor criminal proceeding pending.

Even though the medical examination (2^ class certification) is not required by law in order to start the course, we highly recommend our students to perform it: the validity is five years for pilots under 40 and two years for pilots over 40. You may contact for free the planning office to book the medical, which must be taken in an Aeromedical Center (see the General Information page).

It is necessary to be 16 years old for the first solo flight and 17 for the final skill test.

Theoretical Course

Every course lasts approximately 4 months and it takes place during the week.

Every month you may attend the initial seminar: this seminar gives you the basic knowledge to start flying. The lessons follow a rolling plan with scheduled priorities to have the chance to repeat the most important arguments during the year.

After passing the theoretical exam in a nearby airport you will attend the practical exam with a certified examiner.

Practical Course

The planning office organizes the appointments with the instructors for booking the flight hours on request.

Flight activity consists of a minimum of 45 flight hours, as required by the European Law.
