Why complete your helicopter training in San Diego?

San Diego puts you in close proximity to multiple air fields within reach of the ocean, the mountains, and every type of terrain in between; plus you’ll learn to easily navigate through different types of air space.


HeliStream’s flight training, primary pilot training, and advanced pilot training, offer aspiring helicopter pilots and veteran rotarheads alike skills and techniques they can use to make themselves safer and more comfortable in the air and more marketable on the ground. Those new to the world of rotary winged aviation will learn essential skills that will allow them to safely operate an aircraft starting on the very first day. Veterans in for a refresher course or for advanced training will learn skills they can use in industries such as tourism, filmmaking, utility, construction, and more!


But it’s not all about hitting the books and logging flight time. San Diego is a beautiful city with plenty to do during your down time. Of course there’s the ocean—perfect for a quick fishing trip or a lazy day on the beach—but there’s so much more. The San Diego Zoo and Sea World are excellent experiences for families. The U.S.S. Midway Museum is a must for history or military buffs. The boutique shopping in La Jolla is world class. And for the sports fan San Diego is home to the Chargers and Padres.


Why not make a learning vacation out of it? Schedule your helicopter training during the right time of the year and you can catch the San Diego Wine & Food Festival, the start of the racing season at the historic Del Mar Racetrack, The Air Show San Diego, the Festival of Sail in San Diego Bay, or even San Diego Comic-Con International.

More About Our Second Location

HeliStream Inc. was built on a passion for perfection. Rod Anderson and Barbara Perrin, both U.S. Army-trained helicopter pilots, recognized an opportunity to carry the high-quality military training they’d received into the civilian world. They saw a real desire (and a real need) for a quality helicopter training program in the OC and in 1982 founded HeliStream to answer that call.


Built using the military syllabus’ directed training style, HeliStream’s program quickly grew into one of the premiere training options for helicopter pilots in the country. The program has continued to grow both in popularity and in scope to meet the ever-changing aerial needs of Orange County’s businesses, tourist industry, and aspiring helicopter pilots. Now, with a second base of operations in San Diego, HeliStream can bring the same services and top-notch training to San Diego County and the surrounding areas.
