Cobham’s new Helicopter Academy is launched and will provide globally acclaimed training services to new customers worldwide
This year, Cobham is thrilled to be launching its own brand of
helicopter training through the newly-established Cobham Helicopter
Academy. Through the Academy, Cobham is expanding the remit and
reach of its world-leading helicopter training capabilities to
provide solutions to new customers around the globe.
From comprehensive ab initio training, to the specialist skills
required for search and rescue missions, tactical operations and
commercial operations, Cobham provides helicopter training to
Government Agencies, Military, Emergency Services, Coast Guard,
Original Equipment Manufacturers, and Oil, Gas and Wind Farm
Duncan Milne, Vice President, Cobham Helicopter Services said
"Cobham has been providing ab initio training, specialist flight
training and engineer and support training to helicopter pilots,
crew and engineers since 1997."
"Our instructors are among the best in the world - they are all
British ex-Military, with considerable operational experience
gained from the same demanding conditions that students may one day
find themselves operating in.
"So whether they're effecting a rescue in an urban conflict
zone, or delivering essential maintenance equipment and crew to a
remote wind turbine site, our training makes sure they have the
outstanding airmanship, captaincy, judgement and risk analysis they
need to get the job done - professionally and safely," Mr Milne

Cobham, approved by both RAF Central Flying School (Helicopters)

highest standards at the UK's Defence Helicopter Flying School for
over 20 years, including the provision of intensive aviation
language training for international students. Now, for the first
time, Cobham's niche expertise is being made available to a broader
spectrum of potential customers around the world.
