Pilot Training

Helicopter Pilot Training

TRKAirbus Helicopters provides initial transition and re-currency courses to pilots who hold a valid private helicopter pilot certificate.

Ground school, flight training and simulator training are designed with an operational ‘real world’ approach and course content includes the latest technical and most up-to-date information on our helicopters.

Airbus provides both Initial Transition courses and Recurrent courses. Our ‘in-aircraft’ pilot courses will develop the pilot’s skill-set to conduct flight operations safely and efficiently. These courses also develop the pilot’s decision-making abilities, both pre-flight and in-flight, through a challenging real-world scenario-based curriculum.

Airbus Helicopters North America’s Transition Ground School covers the following subjects:

  • Aircraft Systems Integration
  • Emergency and Abnormal Procedures
  • Autopilot (where applicable)
  • Cockpit Displays and Controls
  • Performance planning and charts
  • Weight and Balance
  • Aircraft Flight Manual
  • Pre-flight/Post flight Checks
  • Night rating

Students are tested with a closed-book final examination, which covers aircraft systems, limitations and weight and balance sections. Students must achieve a score of 70% in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.

Airbus Helicopters North America’s training center offers initial training courses based on a minimum of three people. Quoted prices are per student. Courses may be available upon request and depending on instructor’s availability.

Airbus Helicopters North America’s training center also offers on-site training in your helicopter with the flight instructor traveling to a location of your choice.
