EXPERIENCED INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTORS
Instructors at the Australian Helicopter Academy (AHA) have a vast and wide range of experience.

This can give you a distinct insight into many facets of the aviation industry.
During training, our instructors will highlight the skills needed to perform operations and the Kimberley region offers great diversity to build your skills.
We endeavour to help guide you on the journey to attain your goals and aspirations as a professional helicopter pilot and give you a head-start in your pilot career.
- "The decision was easy for me when choosing to do my training with AHA. They have experienced instructors who have incredible experience in all areas of the helicopter industry such as long lining, fire fighting, mustering etc. Being exposed to a large helicopter business has also been brilliant as you get real insight into how a professional helicopter company is run and what they expect from a professional pilot. Having LAME’s and Avionics engineers on hand has been a huge bonus as they gave me a solid understanding to the ins and outs of a wide range of aircraft. Most of all l was influenced with the scenario based flying and the attention to detail that AHA provide so I can become a true professional in the industry."Sam Bleakley - Harrow, VIC
- "I couldn’t recommend AHA highly enough. The training environment fully immerses you in the industry which helps endlessly in learning all that is required to get your licence. The people involved in the training and the HeliSpirit employees made the entire process an unforgettable experience."Callum MacKellar - WA
- "Highlights of the training has to be the training areas available to AHA. There is everything from open paddocks to tight gorges to remote pinnacles everywhere is stunning and with a bit of rain waterfalls pop up everywhere. I would 100% recommend AHA to people looking to get there CPL. Being in the Kimberly's means you don't waste any time with controlled airspace, get to explore stunning areas and have top tier instructors aswell as the added bonus of working side by side Helispirit and gaining an understanding of how a commercial operator works and the potential for employment straight out of training!"Harry Shaw - ACT
