ATPL(H)

Traffic Pilot License Helicopter

Would you like to “work” that way- should your workplace look like this in the future?

Would you like to fly such a helicopter as commander in charge in the 2 pilot cockpit?

Then the ATPL(H) training is the first step there.

Choose between the following training courses:

ATPL(H) VFR

The Traffic Pilot License entitles you to commercial flight operations for which 2 pilots are required and are performed according to visual flight rules. You may fly large commercial helicopters first as a co-pilot and later as a pilot in command. In Heli Transair, you have a strong partner for demanding training: We have the necessary infrastructure and the best conditions - top maintained helicopters, flight simulators and excellent instructors with a lot of experience in this segment.

We are constantly developing our training concept further; in addition, we introduce you to the everyday life of pilots in our business areas at an early stage. Word has long since got around that our students have the tools for a successful career as a commercial pilot: They are in use throughout Europe.

Contents and requirements

The practical basic training is identical to any other training course for commercial pilots. However, where other training ends, it begins to become special in this training course. The theoretical training is considerably more extensive and prepares you purposefully for the later spectrum of use. After completing your ATPL(H) training and passing the theory test, you will receive the CPL(H) license with the note "ATPL theory credit".

You may already work as a co-pilot on traffic helicopters. You may only fly on multi-engine helicopters as a pilot in command (PIC) once you meet the requirements and have passed another test flight.

Theoretical training

The full-time course for applicants without previous knowledge comprises 650 hours of theory.

In addition to the subject areas listed below, the complete theoretical part of the MCC (Muliti Crew Cooperation) is taught.

Here is an overview of the specialist areas:

 

  • Air law
  • Navigation
  • Radio navigation
  • Operational procedures
  • Meteorology
  • Human capability
  • Technology
  • Aerodynamics
  • Instruments
  • Flight performance
  • Flight planning

The theoretical training is divided into several phases and ends with the theoretical examination, which you have to take at the Federal Office of Civil Aviation in Braunschweig.

Practical training

The practical training lasts at least 195 hours. These are divided between basic and advanced training, simulator training and intermediate examinations. They fly on smaller, piston-powered helicopters with one engine and on larger helicopters with 2 turbines engines.

Practical exam

Practical exam you take the practical exam on a helicopter with 2 turbines engines, which you already know from your training.

Requirements

  • Minimum age 17 years at the beginning of training (with the consent of the legal representative)
  • Minimum age at the examination flight is 21 years
  • Class 1 Medical Aviation Certificate
  • Proof of identity:
  • Copy of your identity card or passport
  • 3 passport photos
  • Proof of a valid ZÜP (reliability check in accordance with §7 LuftSiG)
  • Declaration of pending criminal proceedings
  • Current except from the central traffic register
  • Proof of first aid measures (not older than one year)
  • Proof of knowledge in mathematics, physics and English (will be provided at the flight school before the start of training)
