Helicopter Careers

At Airwork Helicopters, we like to do everything we can to ensure that our students are in the best possible position for obtaining employment after completion of their commercial pilot’s licence. We have an extensive network in the industry developed over many years. Due to our high training standards many employers of low time helicopter pilots come directly to us to source their junior pilots.

As a result, many of our pilots are successful in advancing their helicopter careers within the industry. Have a read of some of our past students stories to see for yourself.
