Professional Helicopter Training Courses
Welcome to MaxFlight Helicopter Services! Our primary service is to offer flight training in the Cabri G2 Helicopter (max weight per person 260 lbs), Robinson R-22 (Max weight per person 220 lbs) and R-44 helicopter (max weight per person 300 lbs). Our students will perform ground training with a Certified Flight Instructor and then have the ability to fly in the Cabri G2, R-22 or R-44 to practice what they have learned.
Each student will have the opportunity to get their Private Pilots License, Instrument rating, helicopter add-on rating, Commercial license and/or their Certified Flight Instructor’s License. Along with all those opportunities, we also offer training in the Bell 206 Jet Ranger for those interested in building turbine time.
New Training Helicopter!
The Cabri G2 is a two-seat light helicopter with a three-bladed fully articulated main rotor and a Fenestron-type tail rotor. As with most French-designed helicopters, the main rotor blades advance to the left. The Cabri powered by a single 180 hp (134 kW) Lycoming O-360 piston engine, which has been derated to 145 hp (108 kW). The engine incorporates a solid-state electronic ignition system which protects against over-speed upon startup and has greater reliability. See photos of Cabri G2
