All training flights originate at South Lake Tahoe Airport. Our location in the Sierra Nevada Mountains offers unique opportunities for invaluable flight training. You’ll learn how to read the terrain, weather, and other visual cues:
Instructors conduct ground training one-on-one with students in the classroom or on the tarmac at the South Lake Airport and at Tahoe Mountain Lab.
Tahoe Mountain Lab is a 24-hour co-working space. It is equipped with a lounge, meeting rooms, desks for studying, high speed internet, and a kitchen.
During the winter months, Tahoe Mountain Lab has a second location, slope-side, at Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe, California. Students can take a break from their studies and enjoy Tahoe’s 500+ inches of annual snowfall.
Students are responsible for securing their own accommodations and transportation. Upon acceptance, each student will be assigned an ambassador from Pacific North Helicopter Academy. They will help you to locate accommodation, navigate the transportation system or purchase a vehicle, and orient to life in South Lake Tahoe.
Located on the shore of majestic Lake Tahoe, South Lake Tahoe is a large town with plenty to do. During the day, you can hike, bike, swim, paddle boarding, ski, snowboard, play golf, and much more. The activities don’t stop until the sun goes down. Then, you can join the fun at South Lake Tahoe’s many casinos, restaurants, and concert venues.
Your training schedule will vary from day to day.
