About Mountain View Helicopters
When choosing a flight school it is comforting to be able to put your trust in a school with a proven track record. Mountain View Helicopters has been in operation for over 20 years, and we are a fully accredited Private Vocational Institution in Alberta. We provide the training standard other schools strive to achieve. Students that register for our full-time Commercial Helicopter Pilot training program are able to apply to the Canada Student Loans program for funding assistance. We are also recognized as an approved educational facility for RESPs.
Mountain View Helicopters Flight School is ideally located at the Springbank Airport, ten minutes west of Calgary, AB. Springbank is a full facility airport providing the following:
- Helicopter training area within 3 minutes of the airport
- controlled traffic (allowing “hands-on” aerodrome familiarization)
- variety of instrument approach aids
- 12 minute transit for mountain training
Our facility is located airside providing efficient access to training areas. The hangar houses a state-of-the-art FLYIT simulator, an authorized Robinson Service Centre, and our onsite Aircraft Maintenance Organization (AMO). In an atmosphere where questions are encouraged, our students gain additional practical knowledge observing maintenance inspections during their ground time. Students also enjoy the spacious classrooms and lunch area which provide the right balance of camaraderie and quite study time.
