Helicopter Private Pilot Licence Training
Flight Training Facilities at Coventry Airport
If you need to hire a helicopter, just want to experience flying in one, or want to learn to fly, British International Helicopters are here to help. We are well equipped to provide you with comprehensive training from the initial private Pilot's licence (PPL) through to instructor ratings.
The Private Pilots Licence for Helicopters (PPL(H))
To gain the PPL(H) requires a minimum of 45 hours flying of which at least 10 hours must be solo. All flying is undertaken under expert supervision and in accordance with the Civil Aviation Authority's approved syllabus for the JAR PPL(H). Groundschool is included and there are seven multiple choice examinations which are taken in house. Flight training can be undertaken in either the Robinson R22 two-seat helicopter or the R44 four-seat helicopter.
The ideal start or fantastic gift for those considering formal training or looking to fulfill a personal dream. The trial lesson provides a real insight into helicopter flight and counts towards the PPL(H).
All flights offer great photo opportunities from our unrivalled location.
Training is available to all ages and abilities, from simple air experience to the Private Pilot's Licence.
