The corresponding authorisation, which can be in the form of a PPL(H) or CPL(H) licence, entitles you to act as a flight instructor. Training consists of theoretical and practical components.

An expert in the field will train you in various teaching and lesson-preparation techniques, and on how to impart your acquired knowledge in the course of simulated lessons. You will also learn about various training scenarios under the supervision of an experienced flight instructor.

Swiss Helicopter AG provides the theoretical part of the course in collaboration with a partner school. The 100 hours of theory will be used to deepen your existing knowledge, with 25 of these hours dedicated to “Teaching and Learning”, in which you will learn how to deal with students undergoing flight training.

The practical part of the course includes at least 30 flying hours under the supervision of a flight instructor for flight instructors. Up to five of these training hours may take place in a simulator.

You will be qualified, after successful completion of the course, to train other pilots and flying-school students. You will be “shadowed” by a more-experienced colleague during your first 100 hours as a flight instructor, as part of the step-by-step introduction into your new role.

Before you can train commercial pilots, you must likewise hold a commercial pilot’s licence CPL(H) and have logged a total of 500 flying hours, with 200 hours’ experience as a flight instructor.
