For those of you that are interested in becoming a helicopter pilot, I have created a blog to help you through the licensing process. First, it is important to understand what type of licenses are available to you. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) offers a Sport Pilot License, a Private Pilot License, and an Instrument Rating as well as many others.
For the purpose of this blog I will focus on the most common license for helicopters which is the Private Pilot License. The first step to obtaining your private pilot’s license is to meet the requirements set forth by the FAA. You must be at least 17 years old, be able to read, speak, write and understand English, and have at least 40 hours of flight time including 20 hours with an instructor and 10 hours of solo time.
The second step is to find a certified flight instructor (CFI) and a flight school that fits your needs. While some people choose to take lessons from someone they know or from a friend’s recommendation, I would recommend doing research about the CFI and comparing flight schools before making that decision.
The third step is finding out how much it will cost you for training. It is important that you understand that there are many factors that go into determining
If you’re like me, you probably have been wondering how to obtain your pilot’s license for a long time. Maybe you’ve even been considering private lessons, but aren’t sure if the cost is worth it. I’m hoping that this article will help clear up some common misconceptions about obtaining your license and what your first steps should be if you are thinking about pursuing flying as a hobby.
First of all, there are two main types of licenses that you can obtain: sport pilot and private pilot. The main difference between the two is that sport pilots are limited to flying light sport aircraft (LSA). They must also fly during daylight hours, never fly further than 50 miles from their departure airport, and are limited to one passenger. Private pilots, however, have no such restrictions. Private pilots can fly any aircraft that they are rated for, day or night and with any number of passengers. They are also not restricted by distance or airspace limitations.
Getting your private pilot license can be a big decision and it isn’t something you should take lightly. This article will go over some of the things I wish I had known before starting my training; hopefully it will help you get started in your training without going through the same pains.
When you’re fourteen and a half, you are eligible to take the written test. This test will cover all the rules and regulations of the road. It is a fifty question multiple choice test. Twenty-five questions are on road signs, while the other twenty-five questions are on general knowledge.
If you pass this test, you will be issued a permit. You must then take this to your local DMV and have a picture taken for your permit. Your parent or guardian must also sign off on it stating that you have had six hours of behind the wheel training with them, and that they are certifying that you are ready to begin driving supervised.
When you turn fifteen, you can begin drivers training at any accredited driving school. You must complete two training sessions with a certified instructor before you can be eligible for your license. After completing these two sessions, you will receive a certificate from the driving school. This certificate is then taken back to your local DMV and exchanged for your license!
Regardless of the country you live in, you can be sure that at some point in your life you will need to apply for a driver’s license. In this post I will explain how to get a driver’s license in the United States and provide some resources for finding out about licenses in other countries.
To get a driver’s license, you must prove that you have the skills and understanding necessary to safely operate a motor vehicle. Generally, you must take both written and road tests. In the United States, each state has its own process, so the steps you need to follow vary depending on where you live.
The written exam tests your knowledge of driving rules and regulations. It is usually done on a computer (but sometimes on paper) and consists of multiple choice questions. The road test assesses your ability to drive safely under various conditions. An examiner will ride with you and watch as you perform various driving maneuvers in traffic.
Both of these exams can be taken at local DMV branches or with private providers approved by the state. For example, here are links to practice tests for getting a license in California and New York:

Helicopters are the most complex and challenging aircraft to fly. They require a high degree of skill and knowledge compared to airplanes. But you don’t have to be a “rocket scientist” to fly one. The training is challenging, but not unreachable.
