Wonderful experience, my son signed up for the Discovery flight for becoming a helicopter pilot and the instructor pilot allowed me to sit in on the class and even invited me to go along on the flight with them. My son had a blast and learned so much. Great place!

ABOUT OUR COURSE
Classic Helicopter conducts flight training under Part 141 and Part 61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. Part 141 flight training is highly structured. The FAA reviews and approves each Part 141 training course and syllabus. Training is divided into stages that dictate specific goals and the rate of student progression. Because the FAA standardizes the training, a student can predict and prepare for lessons throughout the training course. If the regular instructor is unavailable, any Classic Helicopter instructor can substitute without retracing previously covered material. Students coming to the United States on a student visa, or those utilizing veteran benefits or the Alaska Student Loan Program may only enroll in Part 141 courses.
To receive flight training at Classic Helicopter, it is required that students read, speak, and understand the English language and are at least sixteen years of age. To attain Private Pilot Certification, the student must be seventeen years of age, and attain Commercial Pilot Certification, the student must be eighteen years of age. Students must hold a current medical certificate. Also, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires that all domestic students who wish to receive flight training must prove that they are U.S. citizens or nationals at the time of enrollments by presenting the school with original birth certificate and government-issues picture ID or a valid unexpired U.S. passport. This is in accordance with 49 CFR 1552.3(h).
