The New York City airspace is the busiest in the US. If you can fly around here, everywhere else is a cakewalk.
We are the largest helicopter flight school in the NYC region and are located less than 10 miles away from New York City. We maintain each helicopter meticulously to part 135 standards. We've graduated (1000+ hours) over 16 flight instructors that were placed with local turbine tour operators. We have been designated as the primary "feeder school" for the two largest and most prestigious turbine tour operators in the area and CFI graduates with management recommendations are offered preferred and early acceptance reserved positions as the training and experience flying over manhattan is considered essential by the turbine operators in the area.  We are looking for 2 new Flight Instructors to join the team as we continue to grow.
CFI's have averaged 50-75 hours per month of flight time, and while overall flight-time will vary on individual efforts and subject to seasonal effects, you should be prepared to take on flight responsibilities of as much as 100 - 150 hours per month as you gain experience and are internally certified for a diverse range of flights.
Extensive and diverse flight responsibilities including:
Traditional flight instruction
Commercial Photo / Video production ("news & film") flights
Experience in helicopter flights that can prepare you for:
Helicopter "tour" type flights - Prepaid / limited set-time introductory flights
Helicopter "pipe-line patrol" type flights - Regular fixed-course photo-flights over complex airspace
Helicopter "EMS" style flights - We donate ~12 flights per year to transport children for organ transplants to regional hospitals and other charitable causes
Helicopter "2nd in command" flights - Volunteer Co-pilot opportunities with local Turbine operators
