FI(H) Instructor license
for Helicopter


Start where others stop

If you can't get enough of flight exercises and emergency procedures, then pass on your enthusiasm to others - as a flight instructor for helicopters!

At Heli Transair, they benefit from years of teaching and flying experience: Our trainers will make you fit in theory and practice in clear and practical lessons. At a fixed price, of course!

After passing the examination, you may train flight students as private or professional pilots and issue type ratings. Your instructor's license for FI(H) helicopters is initially valid for three years and must be renewed thereafter. The scope of your teaching license is also initially limited. It expands with increasing training experience - until you can even train flight instructors.

Simply convincing.
