Since 1982, Chinook Helicopters has risen to become a national leader in rotary wing instruction and training. We have developed an efficient model for providing all levels of helicopter pilot certification and specialization within the worldwide helicopter industry. We are committed to providing the most comprehensive training that meets and exceeds both domestic and international standards, giving pilots the ability to fly not only in Canada, but throughout the world.
Chinook now dominates Canadian helicopter training with a 25% market share of all the helicopter training completed in Canada. Last year 30% of students attending courses and programs at Chinook come from countries other than Canada. A large percentage of helicopter companies across the globe probably have someone in their employ who has been through a Chinook helicopter training program.
As well as teaching people to fly, Chinook provides a full range of industry related advanced training and is well positioned to meet and exceed the upgrade and recurrent helicopter training needs for pilots at commercial helicopter flying operations around the world.
To maintain pace with changing industry trends and evolving technology, Chinook is continually developing innovative helicopter related training projects. Advanced computer programming, machine learning, robotics and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) are sectors under development that will enhance and expand on the traditional forms of training we have offered over the years.
