The cost of training to become a private helicopter pilot depends on the type of helicopter chosen and the number of flight hours. The statutory training programme requires a minimum of 45 flight hours. However, experience shows that candidates need an average of 70 to 80 flight hours to obtain their licence.
Take into account additional costs such as medical examinations, course materials, flight supplies and exams. The total amount for training varies between €50,000 and €60,000. Your prior knowledge and abilities play a significant role in this.
