FLIGHT

INSTRUCTION

Pilots are needed and open doors to many fields, from Federal and State jobs to Agriculture and the Industrial side. Flap-Air Helicopter Service provides top quality flight instruction and can have you in the air in no time!

ADVANTAGES TO FAH

Training Time 

You can finish a commercial license in less than 12 months depending on time and commitment you are able to put into your flight time and bookwork.  We have had a few students finish their private licensing in less than 6 months.

Cost

A commercial license can be less than college degrees, and is a competitive salary to most vocational degrees.

Flexibility 

We fly around your schedule whether it is school, work or family obligations.

Career Demand

Pilots are needed and open doors to many fields, from Federal and State jobs to Agriculture and the Industrial side.  Example: EMS/FIRE/RESCUE, Police/FBI, Power line, Air Carrier, Tourist, Ag Pilots and many others.

Travel

Training as a pilot and getting that license opens many doors for traveling.  Many of our former students are now flying all over the world: Turks and Caicos, Alaska, Hawaii, Colorado, Las Vegas, Europe, just to name a few.

Physicality

Becoming a pilot can be as physical as you want.  Ag pilots and industrial pilots can be very physical.

Age Requirement

A private license is obtainable to test by age 17.  You are never too “old” to become a pilot, but must pass a flight physical with a FAA medical Examiner.  Flap-Air’s youngest student was 17 when she got her private license and our oldest student who flies with us currently is 95.

License Options

Private Helicopter License:  This allows you to fly for personal business or pleasure with passengers aboard the aircraft, but you are not allowed to charge people or companies for that service.  Many of our customers in this area get their license so that they can fly around their ranches to check cattle and their land easily from the air.

Commercial License:  This requires the student to be at least 18 years old, hold a private helicopter license and FAA medical certificate and complete ground instruction.  With this certificate you can enter the general helicopter pilot marketplace, while actually getting paid to fly.
