FLYING THROUGH THE CLOUDS

Heli Tahoe Academy

Training Elite High-Altitude Proficient Pilots

Part 61 Academy

Heli Tahoe Academy will give you access to an FAA approved helicopter flight training school based in Truckee CA. Established since 2006, we’ve graduated classes of elite high-altitude proficient pilots. Through scenario-based training, we prepare pilots to handle real-world challenges in flight and upon landing. Our pilots embark on their careers with skill sets that far exceed the FAA checkride criteria.

HIGH ALTITUDE FLIGHT TRAINING

Training during cold winters will challenge you amidst gusting winds and whiteout conditions.  Summer days at high altitudes limit your available power. So, you’ll learn to finesse the controls to squeeze out maximum performance. Difficult high altitude scenario-based training now will prioritize you for future employment around the world.

PROGRAMS

HeliTahoe  Academy will provides the highest standard of training and teaches safe techniques for pinnacle, slope, and confined landings. In the power-limited environment of the Sierras, our pilots’ skills are honed and tested under some of the most formidable circumstances. You’ll learn how to handle gusty winds, diminutive engine output, and landing zones surrounded by dense tree cover.

This true-to-life experience will distinguish you within this highly competitive field. Most employers prefer pilots who can navigate challenging winds and mountainous environments. And, they want pilots who have trained in real-world settings far above sea level.
