PPL(H) Private Pilot Licence

The private pilot (helicopter) licence/certificate will enable you to fly completely solo yourself and carry your friends, family and business contacts, introducing them to the amazing feeling of freedom and flexibility you get when flying in a helicopter.


  • Trainees must be over 16 when they make their first solo flight.
  • They must be over 17 when they take the flying test.
  • They must pass a Class-2 medical examination before their first solo flight.

How long the training course lasts is up to you, depending on how much time you wish to devote to it. One year is a good compromise between learning and efficacy at an average rate of 1 to 2 sessions with your instructor each week.
