Private Pilot Training
The Private Pilot Certificate is for anyone who wants to fly for personal use or satisfaction. You begin training for this certificate with instruction in the basic operations of the helicopter. Ground training and flight training are combined so you will be in the cockpit on day one. Your ground training will include topics such as airport and heliport operations, radio procedures, weather and navigation, while your hands-on training will focus on your first major goal of flying the helicopter solo. You will also start to learn maneuvers like hovering and autorotation and how to operate safely from a tower-controlled airport.
From there you will move on to more advanced lessons such as night flying and cross-country flying. The final part of your private training involves sharpening the skills you have learned in preparation for the FAA’s practical examination. The Private Pilot Helicopter Rating is also the first step for those who intend to go on to advanced helicopter ratings or who plan to become professional helicopter pilot.
