For about $82,000 we'll take you from zero to 300 hours and your commercial helicopter license as you pay for the first hours at $300/hour until you pass your private license and the remaining hours at $250/hr. You can complete your private pilot rating in as little as 35 hours. After the private helicopter license you'll do almost exclusively photo and will learn this skill that is valuable to our photo contract and making you a valuable pilot to us. You'll need to opt for the instructors rating (CFI) for $5000 and we'll give you a job like we have to every graduating pilot since our founding in January 1986. We have been in seamless operation with the same owner/manager and now have a large fleet of properly maintained helicopters. We have M-1 Visas at our FAR Part 141 school and cheap housing in South Florida where you can fly every day of the year!

Florida Helicopter Schools is the only school in the world that can guarantee you a helicopter pilot job. This is very important if you are looking at training elsewhere because we are the only helicopter flight school that offers helicopter pilot jobs after training. Florida Helicopter Schools operates a fleet of helicopters and like other schools our insurance requires 300 hours helicopter time and an instructor's rating to fly for us. We train you to 300 hours and an instructors rating and offer you a job as long as after your first hour with us all your subsequent hours and ratings are with us. We offer a first job to all graduates as an instructor pilot on a photo contract and showers hours and opportunities on our pilots that is unique in the world. We fly photo on Saturdays and Sundays when the temperature is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Our recent graduates that have accumulated about 1200 hours helicopter "pilot in command" time have been receiving offers at $52,000 a year to fly to oil rigs. They build about 600 hours a year in this "offshore" work and at about 3,000 hours they're reporting salaries of $85,000 a year. A pilot that flew for us ten years ago reported he's currently making $120,000 a year but has to travel and live out of a suitcase. We have placed graduates throughout the industry and the world. The highest paying jobs are outside of the United States, in remote areas or both. Most jobs in the helicopter world are carrying people to areas where there aren't runways.
