Become A Commercial Helicopter Pilot
For those students who wish to fly helicopters professionally, a commercial rating is the next phase. This stage of your training will build on skills learned during your private pilot training. You will also master more advanced maneuvers typically found in commercial operations like confined areas, slope landings and additional emergency procedures.

Helicopter Instrument Rating For Commercial Pilots
Although not necessary for a commercial rating, an Instrument rating will allow a pilot to fly referencing his or her instruments, without the need to look outside. At HeliBlock we suggest working on your Instrument rating while you are building time for your commercial pilot certificate, accomplishing two goals at the same time. Because some helicopter operations may take place in inclement weather, many companies are now requiring an instrument rating be eligible for employment.
Like any other industry, aviation technology is always changing and at HeliBlock we adapt accordingly. The helicopters we use for Instrument training utilize the most up to date technology equipped with autopilot, full glass cockpits, G500’s, and G750’s giving the student the most effective training possible.
