Why Heli Pilot ?

We warmly welcome international students from all over the world. We like to think of Heli Pilot as a family of pilots from all over the world that come with one goal in mind – to begin their career as a professional pilot. We open the doors for everybody.

Studying in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth, or ‘PE’ as it is known locally, is a Port City and holiday destination on the Eastern Cape Sunshine Coast of South Africa, known for its excellent beaches, water-sports, waterfront, wildlife attractions and not least for its friendly people – hence the name ‘The Friendly City. This makes it an ideal location for an all-round flying experience which includes coastal and mountain flying. You are your only limit.
