"Yes, there are only 5 steps required to become a Commercial Helicopter Pilot!"
1. Try an Intro Flight
For only $550 CAD you will get a 1 hour flight with one of our experienced instructors. You will get to do over half the flying yourself. It counts towards your license so there is no money wasted. You will get a thorough briefing before and after the flight to discuss any questions you may have.
2. Arrange your Funding
There are several options for funding. Use your personal savings, ask family or friends if they would be willing to lend you the money, or contact your bank to see if you are eligible for a loan or line of credit. You can also combine several funding channels.
3. Submit your Application
Have you arranged your funding? Decide on a start date and do your Flight Training with BC Helicopters. We have small classes for the best one on one training experience, therefore we have limited capacity.
