PRIVATE HELICOPTER PILOT BACKGROUND: This course is designed for the person with little or no background in aviation.  It includes the most important training a pilot will receive as it forms the basis for all additional courses.  Quality training with a well-qualified instructor at this point is a must.  This course is designed as the first step for those who wish to go on to become a professional pilot, or as a complete course for those who will fly their own helicopter privately.  The private pilot certificate is much like your automobile drivers license, enabling you to use the helicopter for personal pleasure or business.
            The ground-training curriculum allows flexible use of self-study as well as classroom and private tutoring techniques by the instructor to achieve the completion standards.  The flight-training course advances the student logically from basic maneuvers to more advanced procedures.  The student will develop the skills and judgment to safely fly the helicopter as a private pilot   Accelerated course time should take 12-16 weeks.
