Helicopter Pilot Courses

Ocean Helicopters offers a wide variety of FAA courses starting with your Private License which allows you to fly for recreation, all the way up to advanced courses such as Instructor courses, Airline Transport Pilot, and our External Load course. We arrange M1 visas for international students and give you all the information – with no hidden costs – before you start your helicopter flight training.

If you are looking for an Add-On rating (for example, you are a Private fixed wing pilot and would like to add helicopters), please click the license you are looking for. The Add-On info is at the bottom of each page.

College Degrees/Programs

F1 Student Visa

Ocean Helicopters is proud to partner with Palm Beach State College which allows us to offer the AS/AAS Degree. This degree is a 2 year program and for our foreign students allows you to apply for a F1 Visa. The F1 Visa includes ‘Optional Practical Training’ (maximum 17 months) which, at the end of the 2 year program, will enable Certified Flight Instructors/Commercial Pilots to gain work experience to build flight time in the USA.

Once you have chosen to come to the States, you will need to contact the college and begin the paperwork to start your college enrollment and apply for the F1 visa.
