Helicentre Aviation Academy has announced today at Pilot Careers Live, London, the upcoming provision of Integrated CPL(H)/IR training courses, due to launch in 2024 at its Midlands and London Oxford Airport bases. 

The Academy is an industry leader in ab-initio integrated and modular professional helicopter pilot training, with a proven track record, and successful graduates flying high across the industry. The outstanding results these trainee pilots have attained, have paved the way to careers both offshore and onshore, as well as leading to dozens of Flight Instructor scholarships and sponsorships funded by the Academy over the years to support its own crew supply chain. 

After successfully producing a continual supply of professional pilots through the modular training route in its first twenty years of operation, the Academy delivered its first Integrated CPL(H) course in 2019, achieving a 100% employment rate for its graduates who all secured First Officer positions offshore. Now on its twelfth intake, the integrated course has proven so successful, with over 40 of its CPL(H) graduates progressing onto modular instrument training on completion, an option for pilots to be able to take an Integrated CPL(H)/IR course was a natural next step. 

This new programme has been in development for more than 18 months, and once approved, it is expected it will become available as an option for new students wishing to enrol for Summer / Autumn 2024 intakes at both bases. The Academy has just been awarded CAA approval for the MCC (Multi-Crew Co-operation) course using its own State-of-the-Art AW109 SP/ MCC simulator at the London Oxford Airport base. 

Helicentre Aviation Academy specialises in ab-initio rotary training, operates a fleet of 17 company-owned aircraft with 15 full-time, permanent flight instructors, approved to teach students on Integrated CPL(H) courses, and ultra-modern, purpose-built facilities. The addition of the CPL(H)/IR, which will be delivered alongside existing courses, will allow new trainee pilots to benefit from the high standards and resource already in place at the Academy, bringing some significant time and cost savings to those wishing to go all the way through from beginner to qualified Commercial Helicopter Pilot with Instrument Rating in one continuous course.
