Learning to fly a helicopter can be the most rewarding experience in the world. The Instructors at Independent Helicopters not only teach you the basics of flight, but also teach you the nuances that only an experienced pilot can convey. Basic flight skills to emergency maneuvers are covered in depth and focused on in ground training, simulator, and in the helicopter itself. We are a Part 61 and Part 141 Flight school within close proximity to NYC, also now able to receive GI Bill® benefits. As part of our training program, students learn some basic flight skills and emergency maneuvers in our Frasca Flight Simulator. Simulator time is great practice, and can help hone skills on the ground before taking to the air.
