Helicopter Pilot School
Epic's core curriculum received a complete makeover in 2017, re-designed entirely from the bottom up with the sole focus of how to best cater to efficient student progression and do so safely. Our new approach is specifically designed to ease training choke points and learning plateaus, especially at the private pilot level. We have taken special focus on development of commercial course level students with job-specific elective courses to not only help students decide what industry jobs most interest them, but also to better prepare our students for real-world work. We provide our students with the technology, people and skills to produce safety-minded, confident and competent aviators - and we do so with the highest level of integrity and safety.

Private Pilot License
The Private Pilot license is the first license all helicopter pilots earn. It's the foundation you will build upon for all other certificates. Being a Private Pilot allows you to share your passion of flight by flying your friends and family around, so long as it is not for hire. If you wish to own a helicopter, the Private Pilot license is the minimum certification. This course is also the first course for any student enrolled in the Professional Pilot Program. If you are looking to add-on a private pilot rating to an existing pilot certificate, please see Additional Ratings.
Add a helicopter rating to your existing pilot certificate. We make this as easy as possible on you. Because each pilot has a unique scenario or training goals, we recommend all add-on students schedule a consultation with the Flight Academy Manager to evaluate their existing knowledge and pilot experience. With this information, we can make recommendations on the most efficient and cost-effective way to achieve your goal.Course Listing
