Professional Pilot and Technician Training Programs
As the factory-authorized training provider for Sikorsky since 1983, FlightSafety offers type-specific training on the Sikorsky S-76 model. Sikorsky S-76 pilot training is available at our Learning Centers in Lafayette, Louisiana and West Palm Beach, Florida. Maintenance training is available at West Palm Beach, Florida.

Program Highlights

  • Online, instructor-led ground school training is available for the Sikorsky S-76D through FlightSafety’s LiveLearning. This flexible delivery is ideal for complex training at a distance.
  • FlightSafety pioneered FAA Level D full flight simulation for helicopters. The VITAL visual system creates realistic displays that offer a 220×60-degree vertical field of view and an endless selection of weather conditions and locations. Combined with audio, the experience gives the pilot realistic physical sensations that warrant Level D certification from the FAA.
  • FlightSafety’s long-term agreement and close working relationship with Sikorsky provide customers with the most current and comprehensive training available, ensuring access to the latest technical information and service bulletins.
  • Our S-76 simulators feature scenario-based training that includes offshore, database and customer specific heliports. The simulators realistically duplicate environments, allowing pilots to experience situations that would be too dangerous, too impractical or impossible to practice in an aircraft.
  • The West Palm Beach Learning Center’s maintenance programs offer a full range of hands-on courses that feature aircraft maintenance trainers and specialized tools.
  • Sikorsky S-76 technicians can participate in FlightSafety’s Master Technician program, which provides a five-step, comprehensive career development path for maintenance professionals.
  • S-76A/B/C model recurrent training is satisfied for many clients by attending an S-76C+/++ transition course with added S-76A/B/C differences.
  • FlightSafety’s Master Aviator program is available to Sikorsky S-76 operators. This program builds on your proven flying abilities with challenging training that expands your skills and prepares you to react correctly to a broad range of demanding and unexpected situations.
  • FlightSafety’s exclusive Advanced Pilot Training is based on analysis of actual incidents and help develop solid flying skills, swift and accurate decisions and precise crew communication. These courses include:
    – Advanced Helicopter Crew Resource Management (CRM)
    – Advanced Helicopter Surviving Inadvertent Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC)
