Midlands-Based ATO (Approved Training Organisation) Helicentre Aviation Academy has announced the launch of a brand new two-day EASA Helicopter Flight Instructor refresher seminar, the first of which is due to take place on 23rd and 24th May 2018

The Academy was granted CAA approval to deliver FI(H) refresher seminars in 2011, but with the implementation of EASA and a vast array of changes in recent years, the seminar content has been given a complete overhaul. The upcoming seminars will provide existing flight instructors with a fresh approach to the latest industry-relevant topics, regulatory developments, and best practices in an effort to improve safety awareness and standardisation within the helicopter training environment.

The programme will include a GASCo (General Aviation Safety Council) representative who will deliver a presentation on the causes, consequences and prevention of airspace infringements; a particularly relevant topic amongst instructors and trainee pilots. Other areas of special emphasis during the seminar will include integration of TEM (Threat and Error Management) in training, and CAA updates like the Skyway Code and the news alerting service “Skywise”, an essential tool for instructors.

The seminars will provide Helicopter Flight Instructors with a means of revalidation or renewal of their FI(H) certificate, subject to meeting the other requirements of Part FCL.940.FI, but they will also give instructors a wealth of valuable information to take away. Places on the seminar can be reserved by contacting the Academy’s operations team on 0116 259 0186.
