training in one of the most popular World Class Travel destinations in
the world. Sunny Palm Beach, Florida is the perfect place to train, relax
and play. We truly have it all, beautiful weather all year around, beaches
within minutes, great food and accommodations, and lots to do when you
are not training.
We are located at Palm Beach County Park Airport (LNA) in Central Palm
Beach County, 5 minutes South of Palm Beach International Airport (PBI).
LNA is the perfect training airport because it is an uncontrolled field
with a very relaxed atmosphere; however it is still only minutes away
from all that Palm Beach has to offer. LNA is also perfectly equipped
for instrument training because it not only has its own Instrument Approach
Procedure (IAP), but is also literally minutes from 4 other outlying airports
with a total of 15 IAP's.
Our Customer Service personnel will assist you with all of your lodging,
rental car, and personal needs prior to and during your stay with Palm
Beach Helicopters. We maintain relations with multiple Extended Stay,
Hotels, and Apartment facilities so that your search for the perfect accommodations
is no more than a phone call away. All of the facilities are only a short
driving distance of Palm Beach Helicopters. The facilities were measured
for their safety, cleanliness, affordability, and location. Beach accommodations
are available upon request.
South Florida is the place to be during the winter months with our normal
low temperatures dipping into the 70’s on most days. The cost of
housing in South Florida is seasonal with the period from November to
April being the most expensive. Your time not spent in training or study
may be spent visiting some of the world famous South Florida Travel Destinations
such as Disney World in Orlando, South Beach in Miami, or Key West Florida.
Some other area attractions include:
Miami Zoo * Miami Sea Aquarium * Kennedy
Space Center * Florida Everglades National Park * Water Theme Parks *
MGM Disney Studios * Sea World Orlando * Water Skiing * Golf * Scuba Diving
* Deep Sea Fishing * Bush Gardens Tampa * Restaurants * Night Life * Museums
* Music and diverse culture.
Transportation will be provided by one of the Major Rental
Car chains. The rates are very affordable and the type of vehicle is totally
your preference. For those on a very tight budget, you may have the option
of walking, school transportation, or using one of the schools complimentary
mountain bikes. Of course during inclement weather (which we have very
little) we can make arrangements for your transportation.
For those International Students entering the USA via Miami
International airport, we will coordinate your transportation needs for
the short trip from Miami to Palm Beach. For those that demand 5 Star
treatment or an additional thrill, we can pick you up (and/or drop you
off at the end of training) at the Miami airport by helicopter
and fly you directly to Palm Beach Helicopters or by Limousine.

- Bell 206 Jetranger: $1500.00 USD each trip.
- Robinson R44: $900.00 USD each trip.

IMAGINE your first introduction to Helicopters is being whisked away
along the beaches by a 5 or 7 passenger jet helicopter to the Palm Beach
Helicopters! Then, at the end of your training, you are the Pilot in Command
of the aircraft as you fly yourself back to Miami on your last training
flight! Ask about additional fees.
