The Universal Helicopters High-Altitude Training Course is unique to our school. With over three decades of operating experience in the high deserts of Arizona and Utah, our company CEO, Dr. Gordon Jiroux, h.c., has recognized the difficulty many helicopter pilots face operating at high density altitude. This course was designed by Dr. Jiroux and his Directors to place particular emphasis on performance planning and operating near the performance limits of the helicopter. Additionally, students receive advanced flight and ground training on mountainous weather considerations, planning, power management, and general and emergency operations in mountainous regions.
Our comprehensive High-Altitude Course will make you a safer helicopter pilot with a better understanding of high-altitude performance characteristics and enhanced Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM) skills where mountainous regions are concerned.
Students may choose a Robinson R22, R44, R66, Bell 206B3, or Bell 505 for this type of training. Your personal aircraft can also be utilized.
Training is available under FAR Part 61 and Universal Helicopters’ FAA-approved Part 141 certificates and can be tailored to the specific needs / mission requirements of our customer.
