This training course includes theory and flying components which will take
you from zero to a Private or Commercial Pilot licence as you desire. There are a number
of venues around Australia and New Zealand at which the training can be undertaken through
our list of licensed Civil Aviation Authority screened providers.You may wish to obtain a
Private or Commercial fixed wing licence also, which can be integrated into your course.
A certain amount of fixed wing flight time and theory passes can
be accredited toward a helicopter licence. Fixed wing flight time is considerably cheaper
than is helicopter time, which is a double advantage, in that the total training package
cost is lower. Theory course subjects that are applicable to both fixed wing and
helicopter are presented in the form of a single interactive CD ROM. The helicopter
portions of the theory are normally undertaken through a conventional paper copy
Helicopter training is normally undertaken in either a Robinson
R22, or a Schweizer 300. These have proved to be excellent training platforms, and are the
standard trainers in the world today. Advanced training can be supplied on helicopters
such as the Bell 206 Jetranger. Advanced helicopters are turbine powered rather than
reciprocating piston types as fitted to the R22.
