The PPL is the basic training, either for the purpose of private helicopter flying or to start your commercial career. After you have sucessfully completed your training and exams you will be allowed to operate a helicopter under VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and for private use. If you have taken the course with us, a helicopter is available for private rental.
We are using Oxford’s PPL books as well as a few specialised helicopter books. Oxford also produces a number of computer based training (CBT) DVDs that are also included in the package. When you have decided to start your training with us we will give you a complete student pilot package containing all the books, manuals and charts. A full list of study package contents is available on request.
The package includes:
The minimum total number of flying hours required is 45 hours.
Since most of our pilots will be flying in the northern part of Europe we have included mountainous and alpine flying as a standard part of the PPL training. The training will be taking place at Dalarna where we have our training satellite. The training is approximately 5 hours.
Depending on the season, weather permitting we will conduct the flight training in snow. And you will be flying the helicopter to the training area as well as a cross country navigation.
