Fleet

Our aircraft all over Europe

To offer our trainee pilots the best training program, we have several different types and models of aircraft divided over our different bases. In general, the Private Pilot License will be instructed on one of our small piston- engined helicopters: The Robinson R22 or the Schweizer S300 model. These aircraft are perfectly suitable for training purposes, and are more economic to fly. The confined and CPL training we use our R22, S300 and the bigger R44 model. For our mountain training we use our R44 or the turbine powered R66 model, due the the higher performance on high altitudes. For heliskiing and advanced (type rating) training we use the Eurocopter AS350 and BO-105 model.
