Additional training course for pilots who want to expand their flying skills by flying according to navigation devices. Upon successful completion, you will be able to fly even in worse weather conditions.
Part of this course can be completed on a flight simulator, thus reducing the overall cost of flight training. However, if you prefer practice in the clouds, it is possible to carry out the entire training in a helicopter.

At the Blue Sky Service flight school, we offer training on a Bell 429 multi-engine helicopter.
