The private pilot license for helicopters
For those seeking private pilot licenses, our flight instructors from Approved Training Organisations (ATO) provide theoretical and practical training using the helicopter model Bell 206 in advanced training facilities and on our in-house airfield XHLN.
Requirements to begin training
In order to start training for a private pilot license, you must be at least 16 years old; to take the test, you must be at least 17 years old. In addition, you must be in good physical shape – certified by an aviation physician in a class 2 medical certificate.
On your way to the cockpit
Our flight instruction emphasizes practice. In the first 10–15 hours you will learn the subtleties of helicopter control. Soon you will be taking your first solo flights on the airfield and overland. After 45 hours of practical experience, you are authorised to take the test as long as the flight school has determined and documented your readiness.
At the same time as your practical training, we provide theoretical instruction in the following subjects: navigation, meteorology, aerodynamics, human performance, aviation law and general aviation knowledge. Our flight school shall provide the required learning materials for a fee.
After you pass the theoretical and practical test, you will have a private pilot license in accordance with Part FCL with a certification/rating for helicopter model Bell 206.
In cooperation with the Münster/Osnabrück airfield we offer night flight certification as an add-on!
