Diverse and Operational Training Environment

90% of the work in the helicopter industry is done in remote environments. Here at 49 North Helicopters we have various terrain within 15 minutes of flying; mountains, beaches, docks, helipads are all nearby, while still being near a control tower so you will also get experience working with the radio. Less travel time to actual training environments means more efficient hours for your money.

Helicopter pilot careers are various and year-round. Opportunities like exploration and transport for oil and mining companies, scientific research explorations, servicing remote communities, heli-logging, longline and external load operations, aerial construction, heli-skiing charters, and fire suppression await our graduates.
