Helicopter Theory Courses

Private Theory Training

Private theory can be studied in a couple of different ways.

    1. The most popular way to complete the private theory is self-study, we can supply you with some high-quality study notes to work through to prepare you for the exam. This is great if you need to study around other commitments or you don’t have time to attend a full time course.
    2. If you just want to get the theory knocked out as quick as possible attending a full time theory course will be your best option, there are several options for this. Please give us a call so we can advise you further on the best course for you.
    3. Private tuition, for those needing a helping hand we also offer one on one private tuition. This can be tailored around your specific needs, maybe it’s just to get you over that on hump or maybe it’s to get it done one your time schedule, whatever the reason just get in contact and we will help you make a plan.

Commercial Theory Training

To achieve your goal of becoming a Commercial Helicopter Pilot you will need to complete 7 theory subjects and their associated CASA exams along with your flying. This theory will provide you with the grounding and base knowledge that will assist with your flying as you progress through to becoming a commercial pilot.

Although the majority of people do not have trouble with the general content of the theory, there is a lot of material to cover and we recommend you be prepared to commit a reasonable amount of time to it.

How to get it done!

The two most popular ways to get your theory done are as follows:

Self Study

We can provide you with a great set of good quality study notes with practice exams and all you will need to get the theory done.

This is a good option for those that do not have the time or ability to attend a full time ground theory course. It provides you the option to study when you want and where you want, however BEWARE you need to be self disciplined enough to actually study!

Full time Ground theory

A full time ground theory course is our recommended option. It will be the fastest way to get through all the required material and provides you a great opportunity to interact with other students, build your aviation network and to pick the brains of our experienced instructors.

We will be able to guide you through the syllabus and apply real world scenarios to your training as we go. You will also have access to our hangar as you train, so you can physically see and touch the items discussed in theory.

We are super exited to announce the introduction of our brand new full time theory course!

The course will cover all 7 theory subjects required for the Commercial Helicopter Licence which include:

  • Human Factors
  • Meteorology
  • Air Law
  • Navigation
  • Operations Performance and Planning
  • Aerodynamics
  • Aircraft General Knowledge

Our full time theory course is the best way to get all your exams finished and out of the way so you can proceed with your flying without any delays!

How does it work?

The full theory course to complete all 7 subjects takes around 3 months.

While the course is running classes are Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm, students will be expected to attend all classes and there will be study material and/or practice questions for each evening. The courses are designed as an intensive study period and students will be required to put in the necessary work both during and after the classes.

Classes will take place in HV Helicopters flight school at Cessnock Airport, exams will be at the CASA exam center, just down the road at Cessnock TAFE.

Struggle to get 3 month off?

That’s fine, you can just attend 1 subject at a time. Or if you prefer to do a combination of self study and classroom (full time) study we can provide that too; the choice is yours!
