Welcome, to the leading helicopter flight school in the nation. Helicopter Adventures, Inc. is a nationally accredited flight training school approved by the Federal Aviation Administration and Europe's Joint Aviation Authority.
Students come from all over the world to attend our specialized training courses. HAI has one of the largest fleets of well-maintained training helicopters in the civilian world and HAI devotes all of its resources to flight instruction.
Helicopter Adventures, Inc. (HAI) is located at Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville, approximately 45 minutes by car from downtown Orlando, Florida. Titusville is a small, attractive city in an exciting part of the United States, just a few minutes away from magnificent beaches and attractions like the Kennedy Space Center and Disney World.
Located within sight of the NASA space shuttle launch pads, the airport is a large tower-controlled facility. HAI is the major user of the airport and is provided with convenient training routes and patterns. The airport is also equipped with a full range of instrument approach facilities. The numerous arrivals and departures of small aircraft enable the student to become comfortable with busy airport traffic without experiencing the delays normally encountered when training is conducted at an airport which has a large volume of airline traffic.
Within a few minutes flight time from Space Coast airport, there are vast areas of undeveloped land where the school's aircraft can operate without causing annoyance to residential areas. The busy airspace and many airports around the Orlando area provides the perfect training environment for building confidence with radio communication.
Perfect flying weather is not perfect for flight training. A student pilot needs to be exposed to changing conditions and learn how to make the right decisions. Central Florida is ideal for this purpose. The region has a weather pattern that causes minimum interruption to training and yet provides many challenges to pilots. There are no lengthy delays due to fog, or other no-fly weather conditions. However, the weather changes quickly, forcing pilots to analyze and react to conditions.
A major advantage of the Central Florida region is the cost of living. Students at HAI are able to keep living costs to a minimum. Accommodation and food costs are among the best values in the United States.
HAI devotes all of its resources to flight instruction. Each program is tailored to the ability of the student to assimilate new skills and to the student's time schedule. No previous aviation experience is required to join our flight school. Our instructors offer top quality training and take an earnest interest in the progress of every student. Over the period of training a close bond develops between student and instructor. The atmosphere at Helicopter Adventures, Inc. is a pleasant blend of professionalism and informality. You will find that your training is hard work, but thoroughly enjoyable; we never forget that each student is a valued customer.
