All training flights originate at Truckee Airport and Rio Vista 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 Truckee Airport and at Rio Vista Airport facility.
Rio Vista Lab is a 24-hour co-working space facility at the airport. It is equipped with a lounge, meeting rooms, desks for studying, high speed internet, and a kitchen.
During the winter months, 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 Truckee/Rio Vista
Located on the shore of majestic Lake Tahoe, Truckee 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 night life in Truckee.
Your training schedule will vary from day to day.
