Flight School

HELI CZECH s.r.o. CZ/ATO 021 is one of the leading flight schools for the provision of training on helicopters. The team of instructors has many years of civilian and military experience in demanding flying as well as in international missions. We provide from basic training to professional courses, as well as internationally.

Over the past three years, we have flown more than 15 000 flight hours in training courses, 1 330 of these hours in six weeks.

EXCLUSIVELY in our flight school, every student which enrolled in any course has the opportunity to fly with AH-1S COBRA attack helicopter.

 

OVERVIEW OF PROVIDED TRAINING:

PPL (H) – The first step for helicopter flying

The first step in getting started with a helicopter is to acquire a PPL-H Private Pilot Qualification. This license entitles pilots to use a helicopter for their own needs, and is non-commercial.

Practical part

If you start flying from scratch, you need to have at least 45 hours of flight time + 1.5 hours with the examiner during the examination. If you have flown in the past, you can count up to 10% of the total flight time, but 6 flying hours max. With practical flying on the helicopter, you can start almost immediately after the basic instruction.

The theoretical part

The 100 hourly lessons consists of teaching with a lecturer, and part is self-study. The course prepares you perfectly for tests carried out on the ÚCL.
Since the theoretical and practical courses can be performed at the same time, there is a better understanding of the topics discussed. Ultimately, this means time and money savings.

Theoretical subjects discussed:

- aviation law
- meteorology
- operating procedures
- general knowledge of aircraft
- navigation
- basics of flight
- planning and execution of the flight
- human performance and limitations
- communication

You will take the final practical exam after passing the theoretical tests on the ÚCL and completing the prescribed practical training.

ADVANCED EMERGENCY PROCEDURES – expanding skills in critical situations

The course is designed for holders of PPL(H) qualification or higher who hold at least one of the following type ratings: R22, R44, R66, MD 500, BELL 206B

The subject of the training is:
- autorotation at altitude + advanced area maneuvers – the exercise is aimed at using all the maneuvering options that the helicopter allows from 0 to the maximum speed, including ART from hovering at altitude
- full landing in autorotation – the goal is to master the piloting technique for landing without an engine
- full landing in autorotation to a marked and limited space – after mastering the piloting technique we will focus on accuracy
- autorotation into a limited space – when there is no suitable area at hand
- landing with blocked pedal control
- landing with the tail rotor off in flight and hovering

IFR/Instrument Flying - instrument flying and approach

Includes: basic instrument flights, flights to VOR, OBS/ILS airport approach.

NIGHT Qualification

Minimum age: 17 Years
Education: Minimum basic qualification
Requirement: A licence holder applying for a helicopter night-flying qualification must have completed at least 100 hours of flight time as a helicopter pilot since the issuance of a PPL (H), comprising at least 60 hours as a PIC on helicopters and 20 hours of cross-country flights
Pilot license: PPL (H)
Health requirements: The student must hold a valid medical certificate of at least II. Classes according to Part-MED
Language requirements: The student must have sufficient knowledge of the Czech or English language
Theoretical instruction: For the commencement of practical training, it is necessary to undergo ground preparation within the range of 5 hours

TYPE RATING

For helicopters: Robinson R-22/R-44/R66, MD500, BELL 206B, BELL 505, AW-119, AH-1 COBRA
Course duration: 2-3 days

After an 8-hour theoretical preparation focused on the construction and systems of the helicopter, you will proceed to the practical 5-hour training to obtain a type rating with an instructor. Since the PART-FCL requirements do not include separate flights, we have an approved syllabus for all helicopter types in the range of 5 flight hours with an instructor + a one-hour examination by the examiner. Practical training also includes 6 hours of ground preparation.

SIMULATOR

simulator of a type focusing on the Robinson R22/R44 helicopter, which has a "motion" or movable cab system. This type of simulator is the very first piece of its kind. It is certified by FAA. It is situated for two people with dual controls, the same design as in a real helicopter.

It is possible to practise beginner flying up to instrument flying in the worst weather conditions that could ever attack you. Storms, gusts of wind, rain, low visibility, frost, snow and much more. Of course, you can choose any place of take-off on the entire territory of Europe and the time at which you want to fly, i.e., even night flights are not a problem. Pilots can also practice ground and flight procedures specifically for this type of helicopter.
