Helicopter Pilot's Licence

How to become a Helicopter Pilot

PPL and LAPL

Looking for information on how to become a helicopter pilot or gain your Helicopter Pilot's Licence? Well look no further, Heli Ride offers a range of courses on becoming a helicopter pilot. 

We currently offer the Private Pilot's Licence course (PPL H) or the Light Aircraft Pilot's Licence (LAPL H) in addition to type ratings for pilots who already have their Helicopter Pilot's licence.

There are differences between the two course (PPL and LAPL) which are explained by selecting either of the buttons below, the information on both of the pages breaks down the requirements to enter, complete and pass and then maintain the licence.

In a nut shell the LAPL is for leisure pilots, and the PPL whilst still very much a leisure licence, gives you options to go on to become a commercial pilot. (We currently don't offer the Commercial Pilot's Licence (CPL H) training, but have a list of preferred parnter companies who we would recommend for this course should you wish to go on to the CPL)
