| All our Pilot Training Programs consist of the highest-quality flight training and ground school in a professional and inspiring environment. We understand that each student learns differently and is going to excel in different areas. That's why we will work with you one-on-one to optimize your learning progress not only to systematically prepare you for successfully passing both the written and the practical tests with ease but to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and tools that will enable you to operate helicopters safely and competently. Safety is the number one priority and that is the reason why our students are held to the highest of standards in the flight training industry.
To emphasize our commitment to safety we conduct all our flight training in a new 2008 Robinson R44 Raven I helicopter. This helicopter is much safer and easier to fly than older or other training helicopters such as the Robinson R22 or the Schweizer 300. Additionally, our training provides you with valuable R44 experience which is essential for employment opportunities and also for being insurable in case you decide to purchase an R44 for your own pleasure and business needs as the R44 is the top-selling helicopter in the world. In fact, Robinson sells more R44 helicopters each year than all other helicopter manufacturers in the world combined!
We tailor and optimize your training to your schedule and progress which minimizes your cost of training. You only pay for the actual time you fly our aircraft and for the one-on-one ground instruction you receive from your instructor. Additionally, you can pay as you go rather than having to pay huge sums up front.
Even though a factory new R44 with excellent instrumentation and avionics such as ours typically rents for $450 to $650 per hour, we are proud to be able to offer our R44 for the low price of only $397 per hour. If you want to pay for your training program upfront, you may fly our new 2008 IFR R44 for as low as $365 per hour - among the lowest R44 rental rates world-wide!!!
Most flight schools charge $40 to $60 per hour for the instructor. The charge for our instructors is only $35 per hour but the quality of instruction and the instructor's dedication to your success are among the best in the helicopter flight training industry.
