Central West Helicopters offers over 30 years of experience in providing helicopter pilot training services, commercial airwork services and scenic tours. Our professional pilots are here to provide the best quality helicopter training and create unforgettable tours and experiences within the Orange Region.

If you want to see if flying is for you, why not come and take control of a helicopter with a qualified instructor. This flight counts towards your licence or an experience to tick off the bucket list. This flight is an ideal experience to gift to that someone who has everything. A TIF begins with a 30 min classroom lesson before taking to the skies and taking control of the helicopter under the guidance of your instructor.

Holding a PPL will allow you to conduct flights with friends and family to new and exciting places. The training requires a minimum of 50 hours of helicopter flight instruction and one theory exam. (Approx cost $25,000 – $30,000). Training can be done in either Orange or Dubbo, contact us if you require training in your own helicopter or at your place/property – conditions apply. Private license tests can be carried out in house by one of the Flight Examiners.
