Pacific North Helicopter Academy has a fleet of Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters. Most employers require time in the R22 and R44, therefore it is essential you train in both. The R22 and R44 are widely used because of their low operating costs, reliable Lycoming piston engines, and good performance at high altitude. Though you won’t be flying up to the 14,000-foot ceiling that Robinsons are limited to, you’ll come close. As you progress in our training program, you’ll learn how to squeeze every ounce of performance out of these helicopters. Emerging from that training, you will join an elite lineage of skilled high-altitude helicopter pilots.
