DO YOU WANT TO FULFILL YOUR DREAM AND BECOME AN HELICOPTER PILOT?
Come and visit us in our office and a qualified instructor will take you flying, so you can try piloting a real helicopter.
Perhaps you will be
our next very own pilot!
The AIR SERVICE CENTER school was established in 1987 in response to the founders' profound passion for flying and their desire to pass on their experience in the helicopter sector.
School activities have always played a central role in ASC's everyday life, and our pilots have always received highly-professional, meticulous training!
As early as 1987, ASC established itself as one of the top flying schools in Italy.
In our IT.ATO. 0027 (Approved Training Organization), an SMS (Safety Management System) internal safety management system for instructors and students is in place, approved by the ATO.
To date, the ASC school has trained hundreds of helicopter pilots who continue to provide professional service in some of Italy's top companies, as well as in highly demanding sectors, such as mountain rescue, aerial work and passenger transport.
Naturally, not all of our pilots went elsewhere after completing their studies, and many of them are still here with us today.
The added value of the ATO at Air Service Center, which provides an unrivaled standard of training, is the use of flying instructors who also actively involved in aerial work, fire fighting and passenger transport on a day to day basis.
In full compliance with European standards, training is carried out by highly experienced pilots with thousands of accredited flying hours, who are capable of putting passion and professionalism into their teaching.
Air Service Center is more than just a flight school; thanks to its technical skills and specifications, the company is capable of carrying out any type of operation that may only be performed by a helicopter.
The flight school offers numerous courses, designed to enable students to acquire a range of different flying licences: A Private Helicopter Pilot's Licence (PPL-H); A Commercial Helicopter Pilot's LICENCE (CPL-H); An Airline Helicopter Pilot's Licence (ATPL-H IR); A Flight Instrument Rating (IR); A Flying Instructor qualification (FI / IRI / TRI); Night and Mountain Flying qualifications; The attainment, renewal and reinstatement of HU 269 ratings (Schweizer 269), AS 350 B3, A 109 A, 109 A, Q 109 S, 369 HU ( Hughes 500), and AB 47 G3 Type Ratings.

"A company born to train the professionals of tomorrow."
The pilot instructors at your disposal are certified pilots with solid experience in the fields of helicopter rescue, firefighting, and aerial work and can pass all their experience onto the student.
The flight hours are performed in a type Schweizer 269C helicopter on the heli-surface Arena Po '(PV). The student, after obtaining a private pilot licence (PPL-H), can become qualified for other types of helicopters, doing the hours needed for the type of aircraft they want to qualify for.
PRIVATE LESSONS are by appointment. The flight instructor is also available to students on Saturday and Sunday.
THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL LESSONS take place on Saturday and Sunday, so we can give working students the chance to carve out a time to study without having to compromise on their own work commitments.
