Helicopter Pilot Training – Frequently Asked Questions

How Safe is helicopter Flying?

There is always an element of risk associated with many forms leisure activity, helicopter aviation is no exception to this. However, that said there are strict maintenance and training programs for the aircraft and the pilots.

How old is too old to learn to fly helicopters?

We suggest students start to fly for a licence from 14, as you can not get a licence issued until 17. There is no upper age limit, but medical fitness is the determining factor. We allow trial lesson pilots from the age of 12.

What are the medical requirements before I start?

No medical is required to start to fly helicopters, however, at least a class 2 medical is required prior to going solo for pursuing a licence. You should arrange to see an AME sooner rather than later, as we don’t want you to complete an expensive training course only to find you are unable to be issued with a medical certificate. It is prudent to find this out before investing your time and hard earned cash in training.
