Sam Bleakley undertook is CPL training with the Australian Helicopter Academy in 2016.
“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
As a result of the in-depth training provided by the Australian Helicopter Academy, Sam successfully gained employment with HeliSpirit upon the completion of his Commercial Pilots Licence. 2020 will be Sam’s fourth season with the company, where he will move into flying turbine helicopters including Bell JetRangers & LongRangers.
