About Our Flight Training

Important: Hovercontrol provides helicopter flight simulator training in a multiplayer environment for the purposes of entertainment and helicopter pilot apptitude development.

Hovercontrol does not offer certified helicopter training for professional helicopter pilots or those wishing to become professional helicopter pilots.

Using live instruction, real-time voice communications, and multiplayer flying environments Hovercontrol offers an engaging helicopter flight training program to help members of our community get the most out of the helicopter flight simulator experience while learning about the unique characteristics of helicopter flight.

Many of the past and present members that have been involved with the creation and implementation of our helicopter pilot training program are in fact professional helicopter pilots and instructors.

Those that have chosen to participate in the Hovercontrol helicopter training program come away from their Certified Pilot milestone with a sense of satisfaction and fellowship that is hard to match anywhere in the flight simulator world. Hovercontrol is proud to be part of that experience, and we enjoy working with members that are eager to learn more about helicopter flight and getting the most out of their helicotper flight simulator.

Our training program primarily focuses on the basic helicopter airmanship and thorough control of the helicopter flight regime. We also aim to give our helicopter training students solid exposure to instrument flying, flight navigation, flight planning, and standard airfield etiquette.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in then we look forward to seeing you in the program!
