Helicopter Flight Training

Helicopter Flight Training

At Hillsboro Aviation we provide helicopter flight training for pilots interested in EMS, firefighting, external load, tour operations and a number of other exciting careers. We have been offering flight training courses since 1980, and our graduates have gone on to fly for companies all around the world. Learning to fly can be an amazing experience, and we have the knowledge, courses and equipment to help you make your dream of flying a reality.

We currently maintain a fleet of over 35 training helicopters, mostly made up of Robinson helicopters and Bell helicopters. There are a number of different models in our fleet, including the Robinson R22, Robinson R44, Bell 206 JetRanger, Bell 206 LongRanger, Bell 407 and Bell 205. We have the highest standards for our helicopter maintenance so you will always have access to safe and reliable aircraft. All of our aircraft are maintained in our FAA-approved repair station by factory-authorized mechanics.

Another key component of our training programs is using the latest flight simulator technology. Our instructors are trained to use all these tools to help you become a skilled pilot. Our students receive dedicated, one-on-one training from our instructors, and we are committed to providing a quality education and real-world skills.
