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.
