On-site training saves you time and money. We don't need to fly out to a dedicated training area; your training starts when you lift off.


You're not just a number. We provide you with a flight instructor who will carefully guide you through your training, one-on-one.


Flying different aircraft increases your skill set. We have several different types of helicopters to ensure you're an adaptable pilot.

Personalized Flight School

Helicopter flight training, built around you.

At Ocean Helicopters, we believe a helicopter flight school should offer flexible, one-on-one flight training, tailored to each student. As a result, we teach to just the individual, not a classroom of people.

We offer a wide range of FAA helicopter courses including Private Pilot, Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot, Certified Flight Instructor, Certified Flight Instructor (Instrument), and Airline Transport Pilot.

We also offer Additional Ratings for licensed fixed-wing pilots looking to add helicopters, as well as advanced courses such as Part 133 External Load.

“Ocean Helicopters is a very professional school and the ‘one on one’ teaching is what makes the difference, you don’t get lost in the crowd. They take personal interest in you.”


FAA Ratings

Private pilot helicopter

This is where it all begins. The FAA rating that allows you to fly yourself and others for recreation and personal (non-commercial) purposes.

Helicopter instrument panel

The Instrument Rating allows you to fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), and greatly increases both your safety and hireability.

Commercial helicopter pilot

A Commercial Pilot may be compensated for flying. The training focuses on a better understanding of systems and a higher standard of airmanship.

Helicopter instructor teaching student

The industry-standard ‘first job’ is usually as a flight instructor. This rating authorizes the holder to provide helicopter flight training to students.

CFII Helicopter

This rating allows you to give instruction to a pilot working on their instrument rating, increasing the students you can work with.
