Helicopter Training Course for Certified Flight Instructor - CFI(H)

About the Commercial Pilot license CFI(H) helicopter training course

You'll most likely need this rating to get a job. This course is for pilots who hold a commercial pilot certificate with a helicopter rating and wish to obtain a flight instructor certificate. A flight instructor certificate allows a pilot to give flight instruction and to endorse the logbooks of others. This program is highly recommended to maximize employment potential. Your first job will likely be an instructor as these are the easiest jobs to obtain. You will most likely need 300 hours total time in helicopters for these positions as that is the threshold most helicopter insurance policies require. Our program assumes you have 300 hours helicopter time with 100 hours flying from the left seat of a Robinson R22 or R44 after you get your commercial pilot certificate. Flight time is billed separately from this course. You pay for the course once and take as many times as you need.

The training will be adjusted to your individual needs and previous experience. Our program assumes you have already studied and passed the FAA written exam for the CFI. Our school trains you to a level where our instructors feel confident in signing you off. This program doesn't include any helicopter hours as those are billed at $300/hour for this advanced instruction in the R22 or $600/hour in the R44 The the FAA doesn't specify flight time for this rating and how many hours you will need is dependent upon how great your flying skills are. You need to be proficient at flying from the left seat of a Robinson R22 or R44. We teach this in the Robinson R22 or R44. We can arrange other helicopters as well, again at your expense.
