EXCELLENCE

Helicopter flight training represents a huge investment in time and capital for individuals and organisations and, as such, great care is taken in every aspect. We invest in the development of our experienced instructors who are all exposed to the diversity of operations under the Henley Air roof: this ensures that instruction is pragmatic, professional and relevant. All of our training syllabi are developed in-house, drawing from our decades of experience in the industry as well as monitoring the latest techniques and developments from the worldwide aviation industry.

 

Our diverse training fleet include Leonardo, Bell and Robinson aircraft which are expertly maintained by our principal Air Maintenance Organisation (AMO) provider, situated in the adjacent hanger. We have invested in the only Bell 222 helicopter flight simulator in the world to further expand our training offerings.

Initial Turbine Rating

Gas Turbine engines are truly a fascinating and miraculous feat of engineering. Transitioning to helicopters that are powered by turbine engines entails a significant amount of theoretical training and study to improve understanding of the inner workings of such an engine.

Multi-Engine

Rating

A Pilots first multi-engine conversion represents a significant milestone in their career. Multi-engine helicopter types not only represent an investment for an operation, but also in the crew, who require extensive training to come to terms with the complexity of systems, procedures, and performance, inherent to such aircraft.
