Steps in the process
You are about to embark on a challenging training regime that can lead you to an exciting and rewarding career. It pays to do your homework before handing over your hard earned dollar. The training you receive will form the basis to becoming a safe, efficient and professional pilot.
Visit prospective schools and talk to the instructors and students to get a feel for the establishment. Check out the facilities; inspect the maintenance division and the helicopters. Are they well maintained in a clean hangar? Are there former students working in the industry?
Find out if you will have one primary instructor and a back up or will you have whoever is available and will you regularly fly with the Chief Flying Instructor? How thoroughly are emergency procedures covered? Is there a theory structure available that suits you? Were you made welcome? Did you feel comfortable? Were you given the information you needed?
Complete a Trial Instructional Flight (TIF).This will give you the opportunity to experience first hand what it takes to fly a helicopter. It also gives you the opportunity to discuss your training with the instructor and ask any questions you may have. The flight is available 7 days a week and include a pre and post flight briefing.
