Private Pilot Helicopter: What are the requirements?

Helicopter Online Ground School:

Helicopter private pilot? What is required and what do I need to get started, what do I need to do to get started? I'm Kenny Keller, creator of Helicopter Online Ground School. This is one of our most frequently asked questions people ask all the time. Well, what do I have to do to get the rating, how do I go about it? What I tell them is, the first thing you want to do is schedule an introductory flight. Most people don't realize that all you have to do is call up your local flight school and get an introductory flight schedule. You don't have to go through any specific training, you don't have to do a bunch of study. Schedule an introductory flight and go out and give it a try. Call them up, tell them you've never been up, you're interested in learning to fly helicopters, and that you want to go up for an introductory flight. That's how you get started.
Once you get that introductory flight in, if you decide, "Hey, this is something I really want to do. I want to keep going. I want to chase after this dream." Research the flight schools in your area. Depending on where you live you might have several choices or you might have to travel quite a distance to get to a helicopter flight school where you can take lessons. I'd get the introductory flight in first, go check it out see what you think of it. Make sure it's something that you think is going to be as cool as what you think it is because it is. Once you get there and you do it you'll love it, but that will be the next step.
Then, if you decide that you're going to continue on, I wouldn't spend a bunch of money right after that, I would get the Rotorcraft Flying Handbook to start with. It's a $15 or $20 book, you can order online at many different places. You just search Rotorcraft Flying Handbook. You can also download a free PDF copy from faa.gov. They will give you a free copy so you could start kind of learning there. You could also use our Helicopter Online Ground School. I started this March 1, 2012. We have had huge member success. We have people all over the world using our training and it's been pretty awesome. We have people that have used our training prior to going to the flight training, so that you use the ground training to get the knowledge before you go start flying. That's another option for you is you can use our ground school to help learn the information. Then, once you get a few lessons going you want to get a medical certificate fairly early on, which is basically a flight physical. You have to go do an FAA designated flight examiner to have this physical. The only reason I say do it fairly early is if you find out you have a problem with vision or some other problem then you have some time to correct that prior to soloing and trying to get the license. Also, in the event you did have some kind of medical problem, it's better to find out before you spend a bunch of money and then be frustrated and upset later because a medical condition is holding you back. It's a good idea to get that medical certificate done pretty early in the training. Next, the FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight training. This is the minimum. Most people take more like 60-70 hours. Keep in mind that if you get done in 40 great, but in 15 years of doing this I haven't seen very many people get done in 40. I've seen 41, 42 a couple of times but it doesn't happen very often. Don't feel bad because, again, the average person takes 60-70. Just because of time, commitment, school, family, other activities you have going on, it's hard for a person to always get done in 40 hours.
Next, you have to have a minimum of hours. A minimum of that 40 you have to have 20 hours of dual instruction and then you also have to have 10 hours of solo time. Now, if you're an airplane pilot doing an add on you have to have the 20 hours of dual, the 10 hours of solo. If you're coming off the street, you have to have the minimum of the 20 dual, 10 of solo, and that other 10 or more is going to be with your instructor prepping for the check ride. You can always solo more than 10 hours if you like. If time and money permits you could always go more than 10, but that's the minimum. To get to the private, minimum 20 dual, 10 solo, and the other 10 can be determined as you're going along.
Then, next you're going to have to have a pre-solo written test issued by your instructor. You start flying, he's going to get you proficient to take the aircraft out alone and fly those 10 hours. Before he can do that he has to go through the FARA Manual, which is our regulations. He has to go through and cover a certain amount of things with you, ground and flying-wise, before he can let you go. Once you've completed those items in the FAR/AIM Manual and feels that you're competent and he feels good about your abilities, he can let you go solo.

The one Big Mistake we made, every time we talked about Aircraft Logbooks, they were always locked up in the Mechanics Office! So we went through all the Helicopter Training and The PTS, The Practical Test Standards, but failed to ever get our hands on the logbooks, that's where we messed up. I was a nervous wreck anyway, one of the first things the FAA Examiner wanted to do was look at Schweitzer Aircraft Logbooks. So we get them, then he says show me the last 100 hour inspection! It was not a New Helicopter, so there were lots of entries. As I am going through page by page, the examiner is huffing and puffing, tapping on the desk, writing things down, as of course I become more and more nervous. Well you can guess how this Check Ride ended! Helicopter Check Ride Fail! Helicopter Lessons and Helicopter Training Online! Helicopter Check Ride Failure.

What is the cost for Helicopter Private Pilot?

Helicopter Online Ground School:

What does it cost to become a helicopter private pilot? I get this question all the time, whether you're brand new or for add-on pilots, I get asked all the time, "What's it going to cost me?" I'm Kenny Keller, the creator of Helicopter Online Ground School, and I'm going to answer that question for you right now, I'm going to break it down, I'm going to cover the general cost of what it may or may not cost you. We're going to talk about why that cost varies, we'll then do a cost breakdown so you can see where some of these charges come from, then I'm going to tell you how you may be able to save some money through this flight training.
I'm going to go with an average of $10,000-$15,000. I think $10,000 is on the the low side, can you get it done for any less than that? Maybe, but I doubt it. I seriously doubt that you're going to get away for less than 10 grand, and I'm going to show you here in a minute why that is. $15,000, I think that's more of an appropriate number, could you spend more than $15,000? Absolutely you could, again, depending on some different factors. I tell people to expect $20,000, and if you get it done for less than that, then great, be happy about it, but that's the general idea of more on the minimum side of what it could cost you. As I mentioned, the cost can vary on many different factors, and we'll go through a few of those.
Number one, the type of helicopter used for training. The most popular helicopter out there you will see is the Robinson R22, by far the most popular training helicopter out there. There are others, it's not the only one, but the R22 is a very, very common helicopter used for training. The R44 is a larger helicopter, that's a four place helicopter, these are available out there for training, this one is going to be a little more money per hour than the R22, and there is the Enstrom, you may find yourself flying an Enstrom. There's also Schweizer and there's Brantlys and there's some other out there, but the Robinson really is the most popular. Schweizer is another common helicopter that's used for training, those are out there. They're all going to range somewhere in the area, somewhere between, let's say $200-$500. We're going to do an example here in a minute at $250, the $250 is a reasonable number, you can find a helicopter out there for $250 an hour, some may be a little bit less, not a whole lot less, some more or quite a bit more.
The next big one is number of lessons per week. We tell people you want to fly at least three times a week. That really seems to be the best progress for people. If you only fly once a week, by the time you come back a week later you're kind of catching up from where you were a week ago. It's just hard to make progress, and you could imagine over time, you want to make progress, so going once a week isn't usually going to be the best. You can fly every day, but for a lot of people, that overwhelms you and you don't necessarily make as much progress when you fly every single day. I'm not saying you can't do it, just saying that on average, for your money, usually around three to four times a week is usually going to be best.
Then I think the next one, study habits and knowledge retention. It depends on how well you're going to study and how well you're willing to study on your own, and you can study on your own, you could work with your instructor, we have the Helicopter Online Ground School available, we're going to talk about it in a little bit. These are all the different ways that you can study and learn the information. Most people want to fly, fly, fly, fly, they don't really want to sit down and do the ground school, instructors don't always want to sit down and do the ground school, so in turn you end up taking more time to get the rating because you don't study. It happened to me, I failed my first check ride because I could fly pretty good, but the knowledge, the ground knowledge was just not there because I didn't want to study, my instructor didn't force me to study and he didn't want to teach me the ground school, he just wanted to fly. Now, let's talk about the hours. I mentioned that $250 an hour, you're going to have to have a minimum of 40 hours of flight time, so if you use the example of $250 an hour, to get that 40 hours of flight time you're going to spend $10,000. No way around it, so if you get an aircraft a little bit cheaper than that, great, you're going to save a little.

Learn How To Fly A Helicopter: How Long does it take?
How Long does it take to become a Helicopter Private It involves many different factors! How much time do you have available? How good are you at self study? How bad do you want the rating? Many many things play a part in how long it takes!

Hello everybody, Kenny with Helicopter Online Ground School. I wanted to make a video on another frequently asked question about Learning To Fly Helicopters. How long does the Helicopter Training take? That's a really great question. It's also a big question with many different factors. You can just throw a number out there and say it will take 3 months.
Lets use the Helicopter Private Pilot Rating for an example. It depends mainly on how many time per week you are going to fly. The best seems to be about 3 times per week. It you figure you will fly one time per week that will take a long time. The FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of Helicopter Flight Time. The average person takes more like 60 or 70 hours to complete the Helicopter License. Flying once per week will take over a year.
You will not make good progress flying just once per week!

You can also fly to much. If you try and fly everyday you will overwhelm yourself and not make good progress there either. Your Helicopter Flying will get ahead of the Helicopter Ground School.

How long is the Helicopter Flight Training going to take?

It depends on how much time and effort you put into it! How good your study habits are. How good you are studying on your own. How much time do you have available?
If you have family and a job and other things that distract from your Helicopter Training.

There are also weather issues. Helicopter maintenance scheduled and unscheduled. Also be prepared for those times and still go in for Helicopter Ground School. There are so many factors in involved in…

How long will it take.

You can't really nail that down unless you know for sure how much time per week you can commit to Helicopter Flying. And how much time you can commit to self study.
Do you have all the funds available? That's holds most people back. It took me 4 years to go from off the street to Helicopter Certified Flight Instructor! I had to keep stopping to find more money. Money seems to be the issue for most all of us. That's just the way it is.

Hope that helps. Thanks for sending in the questions. If you enjoy this post or it helps you out! Please like and share below and feel free to leave comments as well. Thanks for stopping by!
