Helicopter Flight Training

Whether you’re looking to start a career as a helicopter pilot or just want to fly for fun, we teach the FAA helicopter courses to get you there.

Introductory Lessons

If you’ve been thinking about learning to fly helicopters, taking an introductory lesson is the best place to start. Our 45 minute helicopter lessons let you take the controls with an experienced flight instructor so you can decide if becoming a helicopter pilot is right for you.

Not only do you get to visit our facility and meet us in person, you’ll be presented with your own logbook with your intro flight logged inside. If you decide to continue your flight training, it counts towards the minimum hours required by the FAA for the ratings listed below.
