Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site. Helicopter Flight Services is an FAA approved part 141 and 61 helicopter flight school. The part141 is a strict curriculum with for those individuals who need a more structured program. The part 61 program is more of a “go at your own pace” which allows you to fly at your convenience and do a lot of your studies on your own. We offer Private, Instrument, Commercial, Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) and Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) training in the Schweizer 300 helicopter. We also offer add-on courses for all of the above ratings. We have an FAA approved FLYIT helicopter flight simulator to assist you in your training.
We are located in Medford, New Jersey, U.S.A. at the Flying W Airport, minutes from Philadelphia, Delaware and an hour and a half from New York City. We are open seven days a week, 365 days a year, and training is done on a one-on-one basis. We have four gold seal instructors on staff and all instructors have their CFII for instrument training. All instructors must pass a yearly flight check to be under the Schweizer Insurance Program. FAA medical and flight examiners are available on site as well as written exam testing.
We are an FAA 135 charter company. We offer sightseeing tours of Philadelphia, Atlantic City and New York City. We also do aerial photography.
We are an FAA 145 repair station. All of our maintenance is done on the premises by our own certified Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) mechanics and Inspector Authorization (IA) inspectors. We do thorough inspections every 25 hours and keep the helicopters meticulous.
We are approved by the VA’s GI bill for students who are in the Armed Forces. The GI bill will pay students 60% of the cost of their training after their private license. We are also approved by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development of New Jersey and PA. Helicopter Flight Services is approved to accept foreign students under the M-1 Visa Program. Housing and transportation can be provided to anyone who relocates to the area.
