Balearic Helicopters can offer an ICAO Helicopter pilot with Flight Instructor Certificate the Theoretical Knowledge Training, Flight Training and EASA Flight Assessment of Competence to obtain an EASA FI(H) certificate.

Regulations are found in EASA PART FCL ANNEX III

All Balearic Helicopters training is on a one-to-one basis with your FIC instructor. Training is completed in the R44

Balearic Helicopters recognises that every course and every student is different, so we tailor the training to suit you.

The FI (H) course compromises both flying, how to instruct a student (Teaching & Learning) and theoretical knowledge instruction to prepare you to become a helicopter flight instructor. The minimum flying experience required to qualify for the flight instructor course is 30 hours. The theory training is 125 hours.

All ground, pre-flight and post-flight briefings are inclusive in the hourly training rate. The flight excercises involve comprehensive briefing by an instructor.

We pride ourselves on the standard of instruction here at Balearic Helicopters and have found that students find the one-to-one instruction more beneficial that the class structure. Balearic Helicopters has 2 Full Time FIC Instructors on site in Mallorca.

With Balearic Helicopters having 25 years industry experience and a reknowned reputation for the highest quality of training (many of Europe's top helicopter operators have pilots that trained or worked with Balearic Helicopters in the past!) we have the contacts that can put you on the right path for your career! We also offer the option for the best candidates to remain with Balearic Helicopters and work as a flight instructor in Mallorca

The Helicopter

The Robinson R44 is the modern helicopter available for training and is ideal for the FI(H). It is estimated that 85% of all new civilian helicopter pilots are trained on the Robinson 44.

Balearic Helicopters also specialise in EASA Type Rating Training which will allow you to fly larger five place helicopters such as the Robinson R66.
