The Private Pilot Certificate program is for the person who wants to learn to fly a helicopter and use their certificate to fly for personal use and pleasure.
- A Private pilot can carry passengers but not for compensation or hire! (you need a Commercial Certificate for that)
- A Private pilot could own and operate their own helicopter.
- Medical certificate requirements are less than for a Commercial certificate.
This certificate is also the first step you would take in becoming a Commercial or Professional Helicopter Pilot.
Heli-Ops training will include flight and ground training in a modern system including evolving FAA requirements of Risk Management within a Safety Management System at no additional costs.
Accidents statistics show that Private pilots and private helicopter owners have a high accident rate when trained outside of the above mentioned systems. Heli-Ops training is aimed at addressing and eliminating these accidents. Learn to fly yourself, family and friends safely as a Private pilot.
