We offer single-certificate training from zero-time through CFII under FAR Part 61 or our FAA-Approved 141 certificates, a Turbine Transition Course, advanced training by the hour in the Bell 505 helicopter, and a pinch-hitter course designed to teach your loved ones the basic skills necessary to land your aircraft in the event an emergency. We also offer Night Vision Goggles (NVG) training (initial/recurrent/instructor) and advanced training by the hour in Bell 505 and Bell 206B-3 helicopters. Training can be conducted at our location or yours!
Our curriculum is predicated on teaching owners and operators the most effective Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM) skills possible, heightening sense and proficiency through all phases of flight. Once you’ve acquired your desired pilot certificate(s), we offer training at your home location so we may help you gain proficiency and confidence operating in the environment you plan on flying your new 505 helicopter. We are confident this extra training will increase your probability of carrying out safe flight operations.
