Helicopter Foundation International has long recognized the need for qualified commercial helicopter pilots and helicopter maintenance technicians. Over the last several years, the shortage has become real. Many of our experienced pilots and maintenance technicians are nearing retirement age, the war has pulled experienced personnel from our ranks at a time when the helicopter industry is enjoying growth due in part to the wider recognition of the tremendous versatility of this phenomenal and versatile machine.
As the aircraft industry enters into an ever-increasing array of endeavors that have become ever more sophisticated, the requirement for highly skilled pilots and maintenance technicians becomes more and more critical.
