Pilot Training - How long will it take to complete training for a Private Helicopter Pilot Certificate?
Completion of your training depends on how often you plan to fly, how much you can afford financially, and how quickly you learn the material and maneuvers. It varies for different individuals, but normally the quickest you will complete a private pilot rating is 6-8 weeks. You are encouraged to work at your own pace and training should never be rushed. Normally, trainees should complete no more than one flight period per day (about 1.5 hours). Therefore, if you were to fly a training flight every day in a 5-day week, you would complete 7-8 hours per week.
