TOWNSVILLE HELICOPTERS FLYING SCHOOL is a CASA authorised pilot training facility. We operate the school at the cities main international Airport. The school is the first civilian helicopter training facility in Townsville. Our focus is to train students to a level that makes them superior to their peers. We can achieve this standard through the experience of our training staff. The instructors have been involved in years of flying in commercial operations, inlcuding mustering operations in the Gulf region of Queensland through to precision long line operations in Canada.
Operating from an international airport allows the student to become familiar with this type of controlled airspace whilst still having access to cross-country flights in uncontrolled traffic environments. The great aspect about training in Townsville is the weather. On record we enjoy an average of 320 days of sunshine per year. This translates to less interruption to the student´s training program
The students will also enjoy the wonderful facilities Townsville has to offer. All types of accommodation are available and the city is host to a wide variety of activities, restaurants and night life. If you need to relax on your days off, Magnetic Island is a short 20 minute ferry ride.
