Helicopter training program

Helicopter Academy offers one of the leading helicopter training programs in the nation. We provide top quality pilot training for everyone ranging from private to commercial pilots. Helicopter Academy is the only flight school in the world that can guarantee graduates a job.

Helicopter academy is the only flight school in the world that can guarantee graduates a job working as an instructor pilot on a photo contract. The contract does not require thousands of hours like those jobs that transport people. Helicopter training academy is one of the leading flight schools in the nation and provides top quality pilot training for all ratings including private, commercial, instructor, instrument and ATP ratings.

We will train you from zero to 300 hours and including the private helicopter license, the commercial helicopter certificate and the instructor helicopter certificate in our Robinson R22 helicopters.

After the private rating you'll do almost exclusively photo flying with an instructor and will learn this skill that is valuable to our photo contract and making you a valuable pilot to us. When you approach the 300 hours you'll need to take the instructors rating (CFI) course and we'll give you a job like we have to every graduating pilot since our founding in January 1986. We recommend you get 25 hours in the larger Robinson R44 helicopter but it is not a requirement for a job with us.

An Instrument rating also available which is 20 hours in the R22 and 20 hours in our Fly It Simulator; expect to fly 335 hours total) and we recommend this rating but it is not required for a job with us. We have been in seamless operation with the same owner/manager and now have a large fleet of properly maintained rotorcraft.

This school is authorized under Federal laws to enroll non-immigrant students at our FAR school. See details. We offer cheap housing in South Florida where you can fly every day of the year! If you can’t come to Florida we can usually keep you in your job and in your bed and bring a helicopter to you. We know of no other helicopter school that has more nationwide locations than we do or that can guarantee you a job if you meet our simple insurance requirements of 300 hours and Instructor rating (obtained at our school).

I would like to thank you again for your amazing program. I learned more than a few things with HA that are now vital for my flights here. I miss the Boatpix flights a lot and hope somehow I will fly for you again.
