Queensland Helicopter School conducts training at Redcliffe Airport. We also facilitate training from other aerodromes or from a private residence in rural QLD with conditions.
We do not have accomodation at our base but their is a variety of hotels and motels located very close to Redcliffe Airport which can facilitate long and short term stays.
To obtain a PPL you are required to complete one CASA exam that includes all 7 subjects and runs for 3 hours. For a CPL there are 7 individual subjects exams that run between 1.5 and 3 hours that need to be completed before sitting the practical pilot test. We are happy to help set you on the path for self study and we can provide access to texts and study materials.
Here at Queensland Helicopter School you will have access to Robinson R22 and R44.
As a student you are allowed to train in the aircraft of your choosing although most of our students begin their initial training in the Robinson R22 which is a great training platform as well as being cost effective. During your training you will have the opportunity to fly the R44. Once you become licenced we can train you to fly other helicopter types starting from as little as 3 hours.
