On completion, a PPL(H) allows you to pilot a helicopter for personal use. This provides the pilot with the freedom of the skies and permits the carriage of passengers for personal purposes, not for monetary gain.
We can accommodate students on both a full time and part time basis depending on individual needs. A full time PPL(H) course will take between four to six weeks to complete and a part time course length will vary depending on the student’s level of attendance.
The course is completed by passing a Skill Test where an in-house Flight Examiner will observe the core skills attained on the course. These include the ability to navigate, deal with abnormal and emergency procedures, flying by sole reference to the instruments and general handling skills.
The course comprises both practical helicopter flying and the study of a range of theoretical subjects.
