About our School

Townsville Helicopters Flight Training School is a CASA authorised pilot training facility. We operate the school at the cities main international Airport. The school is the first civilian helicopter training facility in Townsville. Our focus is to train students to a level that makes them superior to their peers.

Operating from an international airport allows the student to become familiar with this type of controlled airspace. We utilise an open area within the airport that often does not require a lot of radio calls, as well as uncontrolled airspace to the east and the west of the field. This allows us to have uninterupted training lessons and also immerses the student into the professionalism of flying in a larger city. We are the only school in North Qld that can offer this environment and at the end of the training you are a professional pilot

Another great aspect about training in Townsville is the weather. On record we enjoy an average of 320 days of sunshine per year. This translates to less interuption to the student's training program

The students will also enjoy the wonderfull facilities Townsville has to offer. All types of accommodation are available and the city is host to a wide variety of activities, resturants and night life. If you need to relax on your days off, Magnetic Island is a short 20 minute ferry ride.

WHY TRAIN WITH US?

Excellence through Experience - This is what you, the student, will take away with you when you train with us.

The instructors at Townsville Helicopters have a wealth of experience in commercial helicopter operations. Combined with the extensive knowledge of training operations of the CFI, we feel we have a lot to share with the students.

Because there are so many different aspects to commercial flying, the only way you can become proficient at the different operations is actually being involved throughout your aviation career. Every different operation, whether it be mustering, drill moves, powerline inspections or tourism, require different applications of your flying skills. Our instructors have flown in an enormous amount of different sorties. During the course of your training we can highlight the different skills required for different situations. You, the student, will graduate from the training with a broad range of knowledge, that other schools cannot offer.

Townsville Helicopters looks forward to training you.
