To provide professional yet personalized training to all of our students at a competitive price.
Choosing a flight school is not only about getting the best deal. It's also sharing a philosophy, follow a vision, getting close to a world of passion, getting trained to the challenges of the real aviation world and in some ways, it is choosing to be part of a "family".
10 Reasons to Start Your Career at Helipro
We have 27 years of experience training professional pilots from all over the world. Our FAA-approved FAR Part 141 and Part 61 helicopter pilot training programs send you soaring into your career.
REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE
Helipro is located at the San Luis Obispo Regional airport (SBP). The advantage of this location is, that training can be conducted right after take-off. In other training areas, for example Los Angeles, students must fly for over half an hour before reaching areas suitable for proper training. The close proximity of mountain ranges allows us to provide mountain training and high-altitude operations as well. Find more information about the airport here.
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
Safety is our first priority. At Helipro, nothing matters more than ensuring that every student is as safe as possible.
No two schools are alike. Each school is different and has a different approach to their training, making it difficult to decide which one to attend. However, if you prefer personal and individual training, then Helipro is the right school for you.
Your training at Helipro will be very personal and individual, much like a family. We can provide a very flexible training schedule based on your needs, time and availability. Our instructors are available from Monday – Sunday.
San Luis Obispo has a Mediterranean climate with dry warm summers and mild winters. On average, there are 300 sunny days per year, which makes it a perfect location for your flight training. For more information check out the website of chamber of commerce.
VISAS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Helipro is approved to offer the M-1 Visa for international students who interested in helicopter flight training. The M-1 Visa is used for both short-term vocational education experiences, e.g. Private or Commercial Pilot Certificates, as well as full professional pilot programs. The M-1 Visa may be issued for a maximum of 12 months, but you may apply for an extension of up to 12 months.
We are also VA approved, meaning eligible Veterans can use their hard-earned benefits to help pay for their flight training.
PAY AS YOU GO
We allow our students to pay as you go for your flight training.
NO SALES TAX
There is no sales tax for your flight training here at Helipro. This can add up to significant savings on your flight training without paying these extra taxes charged in almost every other state.
