Training with Heliguy

There are three main sections to the training you will undergo if you're looking to gain your Permissions for Commercial Operation (PfCO):
  • The 3-day Ground School
  • The Operations Manual
  • The Practical Flight Test
Once you have passed the heliguy™ 3-day ground school and created a fit-for-purpose operations manual, it's time to showcase your skills in the final practical exam. We receive a lot of enquiries about what this entails and so, to help everyone understand what will be expected, we've put together a graphic to walk you through the process.     This visualisation should provide you with a basic idea of what you'll be undertaking when it's time for you to take your practical flight test.
