Helicentre Aviation Obtains Approval to Conduct Helicopter Flight Instructor Refresher Seminars

Recommended Posts

Helicentre Aviation has gained CAA approval to deliver Helicopter Flight Instructor Refresher Seminars at their FTO (Flight Training Organisation) base at Leicester Airport. The first seminar which took place in July was a huge success, and further dates have been set with the next course scheduled to take place on 8th and 9th October.


The seminars are the first of their kind to be aimed solely at helicopter instructors, and will be offered several times a year giving increased flexibility to helicopter FI’s. “Many of the instructors we speak to who have attended seminars have found that they were primarily for fixed wing instructors with only a small element relating directly to rotary wing” says Helicentre’s Managing Director and Chief Flying Instructor, Sarah Bowen. “Our seminar has been designed by helicopter instructors solely for helicopter instructors, presented by Captain Geoff Day and speakers who are actively involved in the helicopter industry - even the Aeromedical Examiner presenting on Human Factors is a current helicopter pilot.”


Comments from delegates attending the initial seminar were universally favorable, and amongst the feedback received was “first class”, “highly relevant for rotary instructors”, “informative and enjoyable”. The next seminar will be running on a weekend with more dates penciled in for 2012.
