The LHA has a combined fleet of 150 helicopters, providing over 16,000 hours of training every year. Offering over 80 flight instructors at 22 bases all over Europe. Which means that pilots can learn to fly in all types of terrain and weather conditions, for all kinds of roles and missions. From ab-initio to specialised operations, customised to specific requirements. The network supports the full spectrum of specialisms. Professional qualifications, across a wide range of skills, ratings and missions (IR, MCC, PBN, ME, SPO, etc.). Over 3,000 helicopter pilots have already been trained by members of the LHA.
All LHA members are EASA Approved Training Organisations (ATO), or expert providers of advanced and specialised training services. It’s the ideal way for newly graduated pilots to launch their career, because they can use this network to find suitable openings with governments and large helicopter operators. Also, members are always looking to work with the best young talents.
