Helicopter Safety Training
The Maritime College of Forest Technology (MCFT), through a partnership with Canadian Helicopters, can prepare, produce, and provide a custom heli training course for your organization.
Competency-Based Hands-on Training
MCFT follows it long tradition of providing hands-on training where each trainee demonstrates knowledge of subject matter taught by a qualified instructor. Upon successful completion the trainee will be awarded a certificate of accomplishment.
A class size may not to exceed twelve (12) trainees per pilot and ground-crew instructor. This is to maintain a safe training environment and maximize the efficiency of the learning environment.
The course is based on a one day training session provided at a location within reach of the Fredericton airport so as to maximize the daylight training hours. The actual training session usually begins between 0830 and 0900 and should be completed between 1600 and 1700 and allow for a lunch break (may not be a full hour).
