Mountain TRAINING

Naturally, helicopters and mountains go hand in hand. Vast terrain not accessible in other ways creates a unique market for helicopter operators and demands a unique skill set from a pilot. Here at Foothills Helicopter Training Academy, our mountain course prepares pilots for the commercial mountain environment. Our base, located near the Rocky Mountains, provides the same environment commercial helicopter companies use for their training following the “HAC” (Helicopter Association Canada), approved mountain course. This prepares students for the challenging environment of winds, weather and the behavior of the machine in mountainous terrain. Instructed by real world Heli-Ski proficient pilots, this ensures the best relevant training available for your next career opportunity.
