Helicopter Programs


We have an established helicopter school that fully caters for self-funded students wishing to pursue their dream of flying a helicopter.

Self-funded students may not be in a position to do a full time helicopter flying course and therefore we tailor the course to meet a candidate’s personal needs. Our helicopter section provides flexibility to self-funded students by operating seven days a week.

For further information, please contact us

Training Programs

We offer a range of courses for various levels of previous flying experience:

Helicopter Private Pilot Licence

Helicopter Commercial Pilot License

Combined Fixed Wing and Helicopter Licences

Foreign Helicopter Licence Conversions

Helicopter Instructor Rating

Trial Instructional Flight (TIF)

introductory flight
If you are uncertain about flying as a career, or you just want to have the experience of flying an aircraft, why not take a TIF with us at the FTA helicopter section? You will be controlling the aircraft under direct supervision of an instructor, following the same sequence as a normal instructional flight, which includes a pre-flight briefing, aircraft pre-flight inspection and the relevant air exercise.

To do a trial instructional flight, please contact us. A TIF booking request should be made 6 days before the required booking date.
