Career pilot training program
an exciting way of making your dream of becoming a professional pilot a reality.
Helicopter Academy offers an exciting way of making your dream of becoming a professional pilot a reality. We will train you from zero to 300 hours and offer you your first job. During this training you will earn your private, commercial, and certified flight instructor ratings in the Robinson R-22. Your first hours of dual instruction are billed at $350/hour. When you complete your private license the remaining hours are $250/hr. Private license training can be completed in as little as 35 hours. You'll do almost exclusively photo flying with an instructor after receiving the private rating. This is fun low level flying taking pictures of boats mostly in beautiful south Florida. When you approach 300 hours you'll need to take the instructors rating (CFI) and we'll give you a job like we have to every graduating pilot since our founding in January 1986. We have been in seamless operation with the same owner/manager and a large fleet of properly maintained rotorcraft.. We offer free housing for bachelors flying 20 hours per month or more 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 logged flight time and instructor rating obtained at our school. See our video page to get a cockpit view of the type of flying you will be doing. The cost of the helicopter career pilot program is broken out as (40 hours x $350 hour [$14,000] + 260 hours x $250/hour [$65,000] + $6000 CFI class = $85,000..* * Course price example based on standard prices fulfilling the MINIMUM requirements.
