Efficient operations are directly linked to the proficiency of pilots, flight crew and technicians, as well as their ability to safely operate and maintain rotorcraft in a full range of conditions and missions. Airbus Helicopters provides comprehensive flight training solutions, including both pre-entry level and mission-oriented modules, allowing pilots to complete standard type rating certification. Our instructors are continuously working hand-in-hand with customers to identify and implement the best training solutions.

Pre-entry level

ems-operations.jpg
Turbine Engine

This introductory module is a prerequisite for pilots qualified on helicopters with piston engines who seek qualification on turbine engine-powered rotorcraft. As an addition to the initial type rating course, it provides the required knowledge on normal/emergency turbine operations and governing.

helicopter-rotor.jpg
Multi-Engine

This three-day course is a prerequisite for pilots qualified on single-engine helicopters who seek qualification on a multi-engine rotorcraft. It focuses on normal/emergency procedures, system and regulation, flight planning and operational procedures/performance.

multi-crew-cooperation.jpg
Multi Crew Cooperation

This one-week course is a prerequisite for pilots qualified for single-pilot operations who seek qualification in multi-pilot configurations. The course covers human factors, crew resources management, decision-making and interactions with the pilot-in-command.

night-vision-flight.jpg
Night Vision Goggles

This course is a pre-requisite for advanced night vision goggle courses. At the end of this course, the pilot will be able to take-off, land and fly by day with NVG flight profiles; fly at very low altitude, as well as understand the methodology for off-airfield landing and IIMC risk management.

This course provides the proficiency to fly with NVG in familiar terrain and to deal with normal and emergency situations in a multi- pilot configuration. The one-day pre-entry level NVG course is a pre-requisite for this course.

advanced-night-vision.jpg
Advanced Night Vision Goggles

This course provides proficiency for operation in unfamiliar terrain. At the end of this course, the pilot will be capable of flying everywhere with night vision goggles, to deal with normal and emergency situations, and acquire minimum skills to safely continue training in the operational environment.

helicopter-night-vision-operations.jpg
Night Vision Goggles Refresher

This refresher course aims at keeping pilots’ proficiency with night vision goggles at the highest levels and to the latest standards.

urban-night-flight.jpg
Urban Night Flight and Emergencies

This course provides theoretical knowledge on the human visual system, its anatomy, the night vision, mesopic visual limitations and night visual illusions. Flight training includes basic manoeuvres, emergency procedures, IIMC penetration, unusual attitude recovery and spatial disorientation.

helicopters-mountain-flight.jpg
Mountain Flying

The content and level of this course is personalised according to the pilot’s experience. At the end of this course, the pilot will be able to understand the operational environment and adapt the trajectory, as well as safely continue training in the normal operational environment.

firefighting-mission.jpg
Firefighting

The firefighting course focuses on fire behaviour, piloting techniques and mission equipment. It includes a ground course, a long briefing and a flight session. To join the course, the pilot needs to complete the external load course and Helicopter Underwater Escape Training.

maintenance-check.jpg
Maintenance Check Flights

This course is designed to give proficiency on maintenance check flights as required by Section 8 of the flight manual, focusing on normal/emergency situations, parameter check performances and piloting techniques. It includes one day of theory, and a flight or simulator session.

lass-one-operations.jpg
Cat A Performance Class 1

Upon completion of this course, the pilot will be qualified to perform take-off, landing and cruise flight operations with regards to performance Class 1 operations. The course includes one day of theory and a flight session.

tactical-flight-observer.jpg
Tactical Flight Observer Emergency Recovery

This course provides basic ground instruction, simulator instruction, and flight instruction for what a non-rated pilot would be required to do in assuming the flight duties of an incapacitated pilot. The course is composed of a two-day theoretical session, a simulator session and a flight session.
