Helicopter Pilot Training

Private Pilot Helicopter (PPL-H) - Course Duration: 5-weeks - Although FAA regulations require only 40-hours, few if any students can accomplish the rating in that amount of time. Most can however accomplish the rating in 50-55 hours. This program is based on 55-flight hours. Students accomplishing their helicopter flight training and achieving their rating in less hours will have their accounts credited accordingly. NOTE: An individual with a private airplane rating may add-on a commercial helicopter rating in most cases for the same price as a private add-on; inquire for more details. Tennessee flight training is the way to go! It is not necessary to learn to fly airplanes before you learn to fly helicopters.
