Knowledge, Experience and Expertise Captured and Compiled just for you
Our course material contains references to some of the finest Aviation reference books available, and we make no secret of the fact that we did not invent Vortex Ring, nor did we develop the aerodynamic model to explain it. But our material is based on comprehensive research, our explanation will be short and concise, and any questions will be answered quickly and comprehensively.
The strength of this course comes from the people who made it happen. These theory notes have been developed specifically for your students and are constantly being updated. This course is the the collection of knowledge, experience and expertise of many people including:
- Mike Becker (as director, Chief Pilot, Chief Flight Instructor) who originally wrote and continuously edits the course.
- Our instructors past and present
- Sam (a past student and amazing graphic designer) and his amazing graphics
- Our panel of aviation experts who are our advisors and mentors who are or have been an active operational flying member of the Becker Helicopters and International Aviation community.
- The depth and range of experience guiding this program is incredible including an ex Empire Test Pilot, retired NZ CAA personnel, ex CASA Head of Flight Crew Licensing, ex FAA Instructors, University Professors, IFR and EMS pilots operating from Alaska to Antarctica. One panel member has started and operated a privatised version of the Central Flying School for the RAF in UK.
- External Education experts, including a highly qualified Education Specialist with QUT.
- And finally, a mention has to go to Phil Grimmard who pioneered some of the helicopter Flight training theory and inspired many of us to make a course better and more comprehensive than the last.
From this basis of knowledge and experience, all of us who are engaged in this program are dedicated to providing a contemporary, relevant course based on situational awareness and focused not only on passing the exams but preparing you for the flying element by making the course interesting, topical and integrating the theory with real world experience.
Situational awareness is one of the major changes introduced by CASA. It is no longer enough to rote learn and memorise subjects anymore. Using Vortex Ring State as an example, in the old days a definition would suffice. Now you need to know how, and demonstrate how to get in it and how to get out of it and how you recognise it.
You can tell good pilots, not only by the way they fly, but by the way they care about their reputation, presentation, aircraft, passengers, fellow crew. It's more than a duty. It's a matter of professional pride. It is attention to detail. It is the desire to learn and to improve. If you possess the above then you are the type of student we want to teach.
There is much more to being a pilot than the ability to operate an aircraft. Prepared in the best possible professional, committed and supportive environment for learning, the successful student be will sought after by the industry who acknowledge the very high standard of students trained through this system.
If your ambition is to be the best then holding an CPL (H) will open the doors to the jobs that demand professionalism, dedication, discipline. There is much more to Professional flying than holding a qualification. A pilot who has complete confidence in the quality of his training, who has the desire to always keep learning and improving while maintaining the dedication and discipline that got him that qualification has been prepared to achieve through to the top jobs in this very competitive industry.
