Private Helicopter Pilot Training

With over thirty years and thousands of hours, HeliStream, Inc. has shaped a Private Helicopter Pilot Program that follows a Part 141 syllabus and lays down the foundation of a pilot’s helicopter training. Private pilots may fly for pleasure and carry passengers, but not for hire. All other certificates and ratings build off the Private Pilot Certificate.

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.

Course Includes:

  • 30 hours of dual instruction.
  • 10 hours of solo practice.
  • 40 hours of ground instruction.

FAA Requirements

  • Obtain an FAA medical certificate.
  • Pass an FAA written examination.
  • Pass an FAA oral and flight test.
