Save this for later

The Helicentre Aviation training academy has received approval from the UK Civil Aviation Authority to deliver integrated training for cadets to achieve their Commercial Pilot Licence (Helicopter) (CPL-H). 

The first integrated course for this will begin later in October at the academy’s Leicester Airport, UK-based training centre, and will enable ab-initio cadets to attend full-time training for 12 months to obtain a professional licence. 

Helicentre recently joining forces with Bristow for the implementation of a fully-sponsored cadet training programme, and the addition of the integrated CPL(H) element provides an alternative route into careers like offshore oil and gas that is cost and time-efficient, the centre says. 

Helicentre Aviation trains ab-initio pilots using a large owned and operated fleet of single-engine piston Cabri G2 and Robinson R44 helicopters, and the addition of the integrated approval has created additional employment opportunities for ground and flight instructors, while expansion plans are already underway to enhance the academy’s training facilities.
