Professional Helicopter Pilot Degree Program
Through our partnership with Yavapai College, student pilots can earn their Associate of Applied Science (AAS), Aviation Technology degree. This program provides graduate helicopter pilots with the necessary skills and Federal Aviation Administration flight certificates to gain employment as a professional in the rotorcraft industry.
Student helicopter pilots will progress through the following certificated programs and ratings:
Certified Flight Instructor - CFI
Certified Flight Instructor-Instrument - CFI-I
Scenario-based training with realism and no risk.
Our program uses the X-Copter simulator and sets the standard for professionalism and safety.
Complex emergencies and systems failures cannot be executed in actual aircraft for obvious reasons. In the X-Copter however, emergency scenarios can be practiced spontaneously in a risk-free environment. Instructors may trigger various system malfunctions-like engine failures- and challenging flight environments-like IFR conditions-at any time, incorporating the crucial element of surprise into a student´s training.
The ability to train scenarios in both VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) flight environments increases pass rates, safety, and student retention.
Our integrated ground and flight school means you´ll be in the cockpit quickly.
