Helicopter Pilot Career Seminar

Helicopter Pilot Career Seminar

Our Helicopter Pilot Career Days bring you the opportunity to explore further into the world of helicopter aviation and discover how you could become a professional helicopter pilot. We will take you through the process of becoming a professional pilot from your very first trial lesson, to graduating your commercial course. You will leave with your questions answered having heard from our professional team of instructors and staff including our Head of Training, Matt Rake, who has 20 years of commercial helicopter experience having flown in the offshore oil and gas sector as well as HEMS.

As well as taking you through the training process, we explore the wider helicopter industry and talk about the jobs available, look further into the flexibility of training we can offer you and of course talk about costs and potential ways of funding it.

After the presentation, we will take you on a tour of our facilities and aircraft so that you can get up close and personal with the helicopters you will be flying. On the day, you will also have the chance to take a (discounted) trial lesson in one of our helicopters. We recommend you book this in advance as spaces are limited. You may also book this on the day.

We will also provide you with lunch as well as offer refreshments throughout the day. You will also have the opportunity to ask any further questions that you may have or discuss your personal circumstances with us one-to-one after the presentations and tours are complete.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hummingbird Helicopters and begin paving the way towards your future as a professional helicopter pilot.
