Proficiency Checks


What is a proficiency check?

A proficiency check is an assessment of your skills and knowledge in a particular operational area. Helicopter Pilots are required to undertake proficiency checks to ensure they continue to be competent conducting particular kinds of operations.  With the constant changing legislation and requirements we are here to help ensure that you stay current and legal.

At the Aviation Centre we view the PC as an opportunity for you to practice and refine your skills and airmanship points.

If you are current you will have to fly emergency procedures, circuits, general handling exercise and instrument flying.  We are keen to listen to your needs as well and practice some of the exercise that you may not have flown for some time to make you the best pilot that we can.

If your rating has expired, you will have to complete some training prior to your Proficiency check.  Depending on how long your rating has expired will determine how much training is required for you.

If you are unsure or if you have any doubts then the best thing it to get in touch with us and we can give you the best advice on what you need to do.  We are here to help you.
