You Can Be A Pilot!


For some, gaining their Private Pilots License is the fulfillment of a lifetime ambition, for others it’s a means to travel with ease around the country and into Europe to facilitate their Leisure and business needs. No matter what your personal motivations and objectives the thrill of flight is inescapable and for many they know ‘ this is what I want to do!’ from the moment they first experience helicopter flight.

Helicopters offer flexibility and transit times unrivalled by any other form of transport, Imagine being able to fly directly to a favorite hotel for lunch or a weekend away with family and friends. A helicopter license could enable you to attend a distant meeting without the need for airports or hire cars and be back the same day, saving a costly hotel stay. Race fan? Fly directly to the event! Most equestrian and motorsport facilities can accommodate arrival by helicopter. No entry queue, no car parking, no waiting, just the VIP experience in your own time. You may even wish to own your own helicopter, Helicentre can make this a reality, providing help and support as you need it to find the perfect helicopter, conduct an efficient transaction, train you to fly your new machine and even how to use it to the best financial advantage.
