2012 Rotorcraft Training Guide

Part 1: United States, Europe, Australia and South Africa

By Ian Frain

Aeromega G-RALA Robinson R44, which the author trains in.

There is and will always be room and need for qualified and experienced pilots and crews to fill the parapublic, corporate or offshore roles. Why one may ask, is this assured in the current economic climate? There are many answers to this, and for which one looks at the offshore marketplace. The oil will always be found, and there is no immediate sign that the wells around the world will dry up within the decade. In the North Sea, some of the crews filling either the right or left hand seat of a Eurocoper AS332L2 or Sikorsky S-76, came up via military service. In this case a Bristow pilot could conceivably be ex-British Army Air Corps, Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm or looking further south at Inaer’s (Helisureste, Helicsa) whereby the crew could be a product of the FAMET (Army Aviation) and entered the commercial world. The parapublic marketplace is increasing with new equipment such as the Eurocopter EC145T2, and the AgustaWestland AW169 coming over the horizon into service within the next few years, requiring good crews.

Then military budgets found themselves being slashed, so following on that a smaller intake of pilots thereafter and less individuals retiring or leaving before time for the other side of the fence. A sizable number of commercial helicopter pilots who went through the U.S. military during the Vietnam War era, are in the retirement bracket.

There were a sizeable number of pilots who got their experience and training via the civil route who complemented their ex-military colleagues on the flight deck, if not outnumbering them in the company. Those who earned their CPL-Hs (Commercial Pilots License-helicopter) and ATPL (Airline Transportation Licenses) by paying their own way or some lucky few managed to pass stringent interviews and psychometric testing and PPL (Private Pilots License) with the operators and be sponsored.

Though not to be forgotten who make up the majority of the also those who hold PPL-H, which could range from the enthusiast/recreational pilot/owner for there are quite a few schools that do just provide the PPL course and no more. Then there are those who want to pursue a career but start off gently by achieving their PPL and then build up hours, add more ratings followed by flight instructors course.

The downside of the economy is the drying up of the student well due to cost unless the training school is part of a bigger operation whereby the income comes from day-to-day tasks and general duties. In the case of less-than-needed or a lack of students, then unfortunately schools have been known to close. However it is not all doom and gloom as in the case of one or two have started up in the last year, such as the Virage Helicopter Academy in Beccles in the county of Suffolk in UK with a single S-300 solely providing its PPL course.

Bond Air Services EC135.
This training guide reflects the areas in the world market where the current and next generation of successful crews will probably graduate from. This first part of a comprehensive list that Rotor & Wing will explore in the coming months gives both large and small schools around Europe and North America and Australasia, with some examples from to sunnier climes in South Africa and Australia. The examples include Bristow Academy located primarily in Florida, on Cape Kennedy’s doorstep, and to British Columbia-based Chinook Helicopters, where one can train in the classic Bell 47. The major manufacturers are included, such as AgustaWestland in Italy and the U.S., Bell Helicopter located in Texas and Eurocopter located in Europe and U.S.

Fundamentally the guide states: What is around and where; What curriculum is offered; What types that can be trained on; What special additional courses are available; What certifications and cross certifications are available from what schools; and In-house MRO capabilities. In the future, we’ll address the former eastern Europe and Russian states to see how they are entering the commercial training marketplace, and focus on other smaller countries in the Pacific region (both Southeast Asia and Latin America) as well as the Middle East.
