Please note, this course of study is designed for students who have no current FAA-approved helicopter pilot license. Students who have obtained a particular FAA-approved license (i.e., private pilot license) will begin taking courses at the 2000 level. Also note, that for students using VA benefits, the VA will not certify reimbursement for private pilot (1000-level) courses.
