Finding the right flight instructor is important for the success of any future pilot. The student’s future career, personal safety, and a significant chunk of money is in the hands of the instructor or school when a student learns to fly, especially a helicopter.

Helicopter Pilot Training Checklist

Unfortunately, many aspiring pilots begin taking lessons after simply seeing one advertisement or attending one open house.

According to AOPA and General Aviation News, 80% of student pilots drop out of training each year before earning their private pilot rating.

Many ask why the dropout rate is so high. Often, it is because the school or instructor failed to provide a structured program, is a poor fit for the student’s needs, or the training is not of the quality that the student expected.

Many of these problems can be prevented with a bit more due diligence on the part of the flight student. But many flight students are new to the industry and may not know many pilots that can assist with their research. They aren’t sure how to objectively evaluate the options available to them, and may not even know what questions they should ask in the process.

Kevin Kahl of 11th Dimension Helicopters, together with ABCI, an aviation marketing consulting company, has compiled a checklist that aspiring pilots can use to evaluate helicopter training opportunities to find the one that fits their needs.
