Private Pilot PPL(H)

Experience the adventure of being a helicopter private pilot PPL(H). If flying a helicopter is your passion, the private pilot license is just what you are looking for. With a first trial flight you get to know the helicopter without any obligation. The trial flight will be credited against your education.

We offer pilot training programmes on different helicopters. Homebase is Grenchen Airfield (LSZG) (Grenchen Airport). You determine the intensity of your training: Fly as your time permits or attend an intensive course. If you wish to become a professional pilot at a later date, the private pilot license is the cornerstone for the further education to complete the CPL(H).
