HELICOPTER EASA/FAA TRAINING

EASA PILOT TRAINING IN THE USA

Hillsboro Aero Academy started offering a combined FAA / EASA training program for helicopter pilots in 2020, in which our students can acquire the American FAA licenses and the required European EASA licenses.

In the past, pilots had to complete additional training in Europe after their time in the USA, which is very expensive and time-consuming. This is no longer necessary because the entire training, including exams and checkrides can be completed in the USA.

The combined program consists of our complete FAA Pro-Pilot program, FAA PPL, IFR, CPL and CFI licenses  and the EASA CPL (H) with ATPL theory. The training consists of around 200 flight hours, 150 hours of FAA theory, 60 hours of EASA theory and 590 hours of EASA self-study. The training duration is estimated around 15-21 months and is individually tailored to each student.

BENEFITS OF EASA TRAINING IN THE USA

The biggest hurdle for aspiring helicopter pilots in Europe is the fact that most helicopter companies require their pilots to have at least 800-1000 flight hours. Achieving this in Europe is often very difficult and time-consuming. In the USA, on the other hand, it is comparatively easy to find a pilot job immediately after training. With the F1 visa, our graduates can legally work as pilots or flight instructors in the USA for up to 23.5 months after completing their training. You can return to Europe with up to 1500 flight hours of flight experience and work directly in Europe thanks to the EASA license you have acquired from us. Another advantage is that training in the USA is much cheaper.
