Helicopter Training Academy has now launched in Blackpool

The full-service helicopter training school, HeliSpeed Academy has now received its EASA CAA ATO approval. It’s been almost two years since Blackpool Airport saw any helicopter training.

The HeliSpeed Group has now launched. HeliSpeed Academy will provide courses suitable for both beginners and experienced pilots. There will be trial lessons and introductory flying experiences available for first-timers interested in the challenge, as well as a whole collection of advanced training courses for professional pilots.

“With a current global pilot skills shortage and the need for specialised operator training, HeliSpeed Academy has been specifically designed to move away from ‘high volume’ pilot training and offer individualised focus and attention to each student-pilot, with multiple career pathway options.” – Gemma Walker, Operations Director at HeliSpeed

HeliSpeed highly experienced local instructors have extensive experience with various types of helicopters. Training will take place at the state-of-the-art, world-class training facility at Blackpool Airport.
