Our top priority is safety, professionalism and quality instruction. Whether you want to further your certification, begin from scratch or just need a mechanic, HeliSAT is the place to be!
We are a FAA Part 61 compliant school!
What does this mean for you? A FAA part 141 school must create a standard syllabus and have it approved by the FAA, all students must follow this syllabus, and receive a minimum amount of formal ground school hours. In a FAA Part 61 school there is no minimum amount of hours and no approved syllabus. While all knowledge points must be covered and the same knowledge test must be passed lessons are based on student needs. Where are you in your understanding of the helicopter and Regulations?
Our instruction is one on one and while we are a Part 61 school, we hold to Part 141 standards.
Where should you begin?
1.) Identify your goals. Do you want to fly for business or pleasure? This will also determine what sort of certification you work towards!
2.) Students must be at least 16 years of age for solo flight and at least 17 years of age to pass checkride and receive certification, but there is no maximum age to fly, your never to old to love to fly!
3.) All helicopter pilots, no matter the school or state, must carry a Class 3 medical certificate, pass an FAA knowledge exam, and FAA checkride before receiving their first pilot certificate and must be able to read, write and speak english.
