The theoretical programme will consist of on-site classes taught at the European Flyers facilities by the same team of instructors that have helped the school reach the number-one position in the national ranking as well as be internationally recognised as a Training centre of reference in Europe.
The programme has three phases:
- Phase 1: students will learn all the basic knowledge necessary to be able to subsequently begin the practical phase.
- Phases 2 and 3: during each of these phases, several subjects will be studied, and at the end, the student will be ready to take the official exams. Students are required to pass all the official theoretical exams before taking the exams in the practical phase of the course.
The flight programme includes helicopter and/or synthetic flight trainer test hours. It is taught according to the programme planned by the Head Teacher (HT).
Training with the simulator reinforces what you learn in flight. You will learn how to fly helicopters with the cockpit instrumentation as your only reference, operating them as you should in real life.
