About Our Helicopter Training School

The HeliSpeed Academy story

HeliSpeed Academy was born out of the demand for skilled helicopter pilots. Our sister company, HeliSpeed Solutions, assists worldwide operators with their staffing requirements – and those operators wanted HeliSpeed to start training professional pilots!

From day one, we set out to develop an academy that focuses on quality, elevating every aspect of the pilot training experience. Once you’ve trained through the HeliSpeed’s Helicopter Training School, we’ll help you find professional contracts all over the world. It’s our mission to get your pilot career off to a flying start.

Why choose HeliSpeed?

Become a professional pilot

Training pilots is not our end-goal. What’s the point in getting a helicopter license if you can’t do anything with it?  We’re in the best position in the world to get helicopter pilots jobs.

Fly for fun

Always dreamed of flying around in a helicopter? Fly sky-high and soak up incredible bird’s eye views – it’s an experience like no other. We offer flying lessons and experiences in Blackpool, perfect for those who fancy a new hobby or a unique adventure. We also offer helicopter flight gift vouchers.

Please note: HeliSpeed Academy is a CAA Approved Training Organisation and performs all these flights under this approval.

Our continued success comes from our unwavering dedication to maintaining high standards throughout our helicopter training school. We recognise the importance of a positive and caring culture that is underpinned by our four core values:


We’re curious, willing to examine new ideas and ambitious for growth


We find solutions to problems and plan for your long-term objectives


We always listen to what you want to achieve so that we can be confident that you’ll reach your goals


Actions speak louder than words – we help our students get results (we don’t just talk about it)
