If you have decided to enroll in a helicopter flight school, many things
come into play. Since it is not enough to just enroll at a school that
charges the amount you can afford, the process of choosing gets more
tricky than you realize. Here are some of the important things to
consider to land on the right helicopter flight school for you.

·The helicopter flight school fee

Since the most important thing you should have next to your desire to
become a helicopter pilot is money, the very first thing you should do is
to scout for a school that would let you finish the whole training. Of
course you should have enough money to pay for the whole training but
there are helicopter flight schools that offer financial aid that would
help you ease the burden of paying a very high price.

Aside from this, you should also consider where exactly does your payment
go. You should remember to know the breakdown of the total cost of the
whole training. The following may or may not appear on the breakdown of
your payment: accommodation, safety equipment, license fees and flight
test fees, books and equipment, ground school, pre (and post) flight
briefings, insurance, fuel, instructor, and aircraft cost.

·The location

If you live near a   helicopter flight school, then your expenses will be
lessened. Yes, you   have to eat and sleep while you go on training. It
would be better to   consider a helicopter flight school that is near you.
You can save a lot   of money by doing this.
·The facilities

This would include flight simulators, the ground school, and the type of
helicopters they have. A good flight school should have a good rating for
all of these. Why? Here’s the explanation: Since training on the air
costs too much for the student, having a flight simulator would
definitely cut the cost off. The same training that could be acquired on
a real helicopter that costs a lot could be done on the ground.

A good helicopter flight school should have ground school. This means
that the school is totally interested to teach you serious flying. At the
ground school, they should be able to monitor your progress and can
continuously improve your skill.

Although you might end up with the Bell 47, Robinson R22, or the
Schweitzer 300, (these 3 are usually the training helicopters) it is good
to know that you have other options.
