Advanced Low Flying/Mountain Flying

Unlike with aeroplanes, flying helicopters involves operating close to the ground for a lot more of your career.

A state of good mental alertness is paramount as you contour fly through valleys, avoiding tree tops, power cables and other items spanning your path.

The training for advanced low flying and advanced mountain flying, is designed to teach good aviation practices in mountainous regions. During your training, you will experience flying in confined spaces, low level flying and landing at altitude, possibly in snow.

At the conclusion of your advanced training, you will be able to understand more of what you should expect to feel and see within the helicopter as well as demonstrate superior handling skills in the helicopter.
