Obtaining a helicopter pilot license is a rewarding experience for anyone trying to live life to the fullest. Having said that, there are a few things you should know before you sign up for flight training in Montana. We feel that the more informed registrants are before they begin training, the more they get out of their whole flight training experience.
Safety is our primary concern
While we want all of our trainees to have a great time while learning an exciting new skill, we need to ensure that all pilots will be safe while flying the friendly skies. You’ll begin by taking courses with our highly trained instructors, and then eventually practice flying solo. Before we let you take off in a helicopter, we need to be sure that you know exactly what you’re doing so you don’t injure yourself or others. While we prioritize safety, we guarantee you’ll have the best time learning to fly. You’ll not only learn a new skill that’ll impress your friends, but you’ll also get see gorgeous views of the northern Rocky Mountains up here in Montana.
Flight training is very time-intensive
Depending on the type of license you want, you’ll need to spend different amounts of time flying. To earn a standard private license, it takes a minimum of 40 hours in the sky. In addition to flight time there are written and practical tests, as well. However, if you want to become a Certified Flight Instructor and teach others, you need to fly for 200 hours. These are just the FAA minimums. Many pilots spend more time in the air than necessary to ensure they’re the best pilots they can be.
We offer all kinds of courses
There’s not just one type of flight training course. Depending on the type of license you want to get, the more courses you’ll have to take. Fortunately, we offer every kind of course you need to fulfill requirements for whichever license you want. Our courses include:
|· Private instruction
· Certified Flight Instructor with Instrument (CFII)
· External load
· Certified Flight Instructor (CFI)
· Airline Transport Pilot (ATP)
· Mountain flying
· Vertical Reference
So, no matter what you want to do with a helicopter, we can train you to do it!
Our services are reasonably priced
As you can imagine, obtaining a license isn’t free. Getting your license from other companies will cost you an arm and a leg for flight time and instructor fees. We offer 10-hour blocks of flying time in our R-22 helicopters, starting at a very reasonably priced $315 per hour. You can also train in our R-24 helicopters for $515 per hour. All costs include instructor fees. While our prices may seem high, we guarantee you’ll receive training from less qualified professionals at a higher rate if you go elsewhere for flight training in Montana.
While many companies offer similar flight training services, you can rest assured that we’ll train you to become the best possible helicopter pilot. Contact Rocky Mountain Rotors when you’re ready to start your training!
