We genuinely care about our students and pride ourselves on creating a supportive and safe training environment.
So, you’ve got your helicopter pilot license – what’s next?
We don’t just want our students to invest in training and getting their private pilot license – we want to provide them with the ability to land their first job.
At HeliSpeed Academy, we remain at the forefront of our industry, working with operators all over the world to create multiple career pathways for our students.
We don’t want you to stop learning once you have your helicopter license and so we can support you in furthering your learning experiences. Please ask our team about Private Pilot License (PPL) further training programmes.
We offer helicopter pilot training programmes in-house and also facilitate courses at the best training schools around the world. To be a helicopter training academy, you need a helicopter pilot license from the civil training aviation authority and that license is to conduct training under an ATO (approved training organisation). Each EASA CAA training course has to be approved by the CAA. If we don’t offer the course you’re searching for, let us know and we may be able to get ATO approved for the specific course you’re interested in.

Did you know there are two types of training schools: Declared Training Organisation (DTO) and Approved Training Organisations (ATO)? Due to the higher qualifications needed within an ATO, only they can perform advanced helicopter training courses. Don’t forget to ask your school what qualification they have!
