Open a professional career with our Helicopter Pilot Training on Turbine with Let’s Fly in Cannes Mandelieu. You have a European Helicopter Private Pilot License (PPL-H) and you want to become a professional. Let’s Fly offers you this tailor-made training. With his extensive experience in the field and his seasoned team, including his dedicated professional instructor, Let’s Fly trains his school on one of his turbine-powered helicopters. As for the theoretical part, the courses are offered according to the demand. A classroom equipped with an overhead projector and paintings welcomes you especially for your learning. For practical courses, which include 35 flight hours, Cédric Bianchini, European Instructor Examiner and Professional Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) pilot, is an expert in instrument flight, used when night visibility is low or zero, or due to bad weather conditions. All these flights are made either on the AS350 Ecureuil or on the mythical Bell 206 helicopter. This helicopter is a 420-horsepower turbine helicopter that runs on kerosene like an airplane. It is more powerful than a reciprocating helicopter whose power is only 200 horsepower and works at super, like cars. The Bell 206 helicopter travels at an average speed of 200 km / hour and has a range of 3 hours. You are thus transported in 20 minutes between Cannes and St-Tropez, in 15 minutes between Cannes and Monaco, and in 1h10 between Cannes and Calvi. This luxury helicopter not only performs better than others but is also more spacious. After your professional pilot training at Let’s Fly and your 35 flight hours, you pass a final exam of about 1h30. Once you have completed this last step, you will be able to work as a professional pilot on a turbine helicopter, get paid for your journeys and achieve a good career in the trade.


To become a commercial pilot, you simply need:

  • To hold a valid class 1 medical certificate, issued by a doctor approved by the civil aviation.
  • To hold a PPL (H).
  • To have successfully passed the commercial theoretical knowledge exam.
