Certified Flight Instruction Helicopter Training

As a commercial-certified helicopter pilot, you may be ready to move forward to something more challenging. For many pilots, becoming a CFI is a logical next step as they progress through their helicopter pilot industry careers. Pilots who pursue a flight instruction certificate gain and sharpen experience so that they can move into a professional career as a commercial helicopter pilot. Becoming an instructor also offers a serious boost to your marketability as a pilot. This is the perfect way to get paid to do something you love.

Sharpen Your Skills

As a flight instructor, you will sharpen your abilities, becoming the very best at what you do as you learn through teaching others. As an instructor, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate maneuvers and refine your own skills. By evaluating and coaching those you teach, you will be able to reflect on your own flight maneuvers and benefit from the experience. Most pilots find that by passing on their own knowledge to others, their personal understanding of flight fundamentals deepens significantly.

Here are a few of the things you will learn to teach:

  • Touchdowns
  • Basic flight maneuvers
  • Advanced flight maneuvers
  • Autorotations

Expert Aviation Education

A certified flight instructor course reinforces the fundamentals of helicopter aviation and teaches you everything you need to know about flight instruction. You will learn how to teach ground training material, including how to effectively demonstrate flight maneuvers and aviation skills to students. You will also learn how to respond to your students and interact with them during a flight. You will benefit from the past experiences of our seasoned helicopter flight training instructors so that you are prepared for every conceivable scenario as a flight instructor and are able to offer your students the best possible education.

An experienced certified flight instructor will be more prepared for:

  • Flying based on instruments only
  • Catastrophic engine failures
  • Dangerous weather conditions
