The Continuing Education Workforce Development has a new partnership that will bring Helicopter Training to ACC students. The program takes students through a ground training course that will prepare them to take the FAA private pilot written exam followed by helicopter pilot training where they will become a certified commercial helicopter pilot.
Certified pilots can find careers with life flight, sky tours, oil industry, television, search and rescue...any field that requires a helicopter pilot!
Aviation Ground School - students will learn the fundamental rules of the air including light signals, beacons, radio use etc...
Flight Training - students will learn to master the aircraft. We have the classes broken into 25 hour blocks so students can take the hours as it fits into their schedule. (150 hours minimum to obtain Commercial License)
