Certified Helicopter Flight Instructor

HeliStream, Inc.’s Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) Program maximizes the pilot’s overall knowledge and skills. Our highly experienced instructors will provide the professional pilot with the airmanship and interpersonal skills needed to teach student pilots. The CFI program is held to the highest regard to ensure the future flight instructors will instruct in the most effective and safest way possible.

Important: Simulator Facts That May Affect You! If you are planning to start your career as a Certified Flight Instructor, Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) No 73 states that in order to teach in a Robinson R22/R44, you NEED 200 hours of flight time in a helicopter. If you received training with a simulator, while valuable, you may find that you need to pay for additional flight hours in order to meet the 200 flight hour requirement.
Our training programs include ONLY actual flight hours, not simulator training. If you are seeking training elsewhere that offers simulator training, be sure to also ask for pricing that includes actual flight hours.
