Your training here is embedded in the real world of off-shore helicopter pilots.

Professional Helicopter Pilot Degree Program

Through our partnership with Baton Rouge Community College, student pilots can acquire their Associate of Applied Science (AAS), Helicopter Pilot Operations. 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:


    Private Pilot
    Instrument pilot
    Commercial pilot
    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.

STUDENT REVIEWS

Star Rating: 2 8-Jan-2016 by Roen

Started in 2015 by Jan of 2016 only 4-5 not including myself were left of a class of 20. Of the two instructors I had neither seemed to really care or think beyond a few minutes. I was run out of time twice and just had a terrible experience overall.
