We Don’t Just Train Pilots, We Create Aviators
Aviation is not just about flying, it's is about leadership, safety, and embracing a sense of adventure. Aviation is hours of study, maintaining your health at a high level, and joining a community of professionals that author the pages of history. It isn’t easy, and the price can be high, but if you want a rewarding career that you will never regret then it's well worth the journey. Be part of the next generation of aviation professionals and begin your career as a pilot with USATS.

Qualified Helicopter Instructor (QHI)
This course qualifies the pilot to instruct beginning, intermediate, and advanced students in all aspects of helicopter flight, with a strong emphasis on flight safety.
USATS has designed the course to qualify instructor pilots based on their experience interacting with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the military training systems; therefore, it trains pilots in the fundamentals of instruction (FOI) and instructional methods (MOI) using the best and most current educational practices.
The course includes theoretical and practical training, in both roles, as a student pilot and as a flight instructor. The pilot will be qualified to provide day and night instruction, under visual and instrument flight conditions.
Likewise, flight training is developed based on our Flight Training Manual, which considers the concepts of student-centered, competency-based, learning blocks, and it is focused on transferable skills and integration of theoretical and practical training.
