Many are the people who love to fly and more specifically to do it by helicopter, which is why they choose to get the private pilot license of helicopter PPL (H). This license does not serve to dedicate yourself in a professional manner to it, since you can not get paid for driving, but if you want to make your passion a hobby.

Once you get the license and if you want to fly with some kind of helicopter, you will only have to get the habilitation of that helicopter. For example, if you get the license in Coptering, the rating you will get is that of the Cabri G2, which is the helicopter that we use to develop the entire course.
