Cobham Helicopter Academy offers a range of operational flying training that builds upon the trainee's initial skills in order to prepare military pilots and rear crewmen, mission commanders and aviation leaders to meet the challenges of carrying out military helicopter operations successfully.


For over 20 years, Cobham Helicopter Academy's personnel have provided this training to the Royal Air Force, British Army and Royal Navy in their preparation for attack, reconnaissance, support and maritime helicopter roles.


Cobham is responsible for establishing and undertaking similar operational flying training for governments worldwide. For example, in 2012 we established maritime border control and counter narcotics helicopter capability in the Caribbean, where crews have since successfully completed thousands of missions.


This unrivalled experience is available to armies, air forces and navies around the world to develop their aircrews' operational flying skills, aviation knowledge and tactical acumen.
