PRIVATE HELICOPTER PILOT LICENCE COURSES (PPL)
Our experts are equipped to teach you all you need to know for private helicopter pilot licence courses. At PHS, we provide Flight Training from our bases at Moorabbin Airport and the Gold Coast. Our qualified team at Professional Helicopter Services will demonstrate and practice every training exercise with you. Also, we will ensure that you fully comprehend what you are being asked to do and the purpose of these instructions. Here at PHS, we have a proven track record in training pilots for over 37 years. A large portion of Australia’s senior pilots learnt to fly by undertaking private helicopter licence courses at PHS. When looking for a school, ask where the Chief Pilot or owner learnt to fly and you won’t have to look far to find a connection to PHS!
Our basic Private Helicopter Pilot Licence courses start with demonstrating and educating our students on the effects of control movements, how to sit and hold and operate the controls. You will then be walked through the process of learning to fly the helicopter, learning to hover, go through circuits, emergency procedures and navigation. All of these procedures aim to get our students’ skill level to that of a commercial or private helicopter pilot.
This training is normally performed in either a Schweizer 300CBI or a Robinson 22 or a combination of the 2 types.
In Australia, the minimum required hours required to obtain a Private Helicopter Pilot Licence (PPL-H) is 50 hours and a pass on the private theory exam.contact
Our Melbourne training school has the capacity to offer part-time theory classes.
Part Time theory classes are held Monday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
There are seven subjects covered in the theory exam; these subjects are:
- Aircraft General Knowledge (Helicopter Engines, Systems and Instruments)
- Helicopter Aerodynamics
