Becker Helicopters provides a range of theory courses, all developed speciﬁcally for use by Becker elicopters, including:
- Aircraft General Knowledge
- Air Law and Flight Rules
- Performance, Operations and Loading
- Night Visual Flight Rules (NVFR) Theory
- Instrument (IFR) Theory
- Night Vision Goggles (NVG) Theory
- Basic Gas Turbines Theory
- Type Speciﬁc Conversion Theory
- Instructor Theory
The instructors who teach our theory are qualiﬁed pilots. We use dedicated ground theory instructors for core theory subjects. For more advanced theory subjects, the ﬂight instructors will also conduct the theory training.
- English Language
ICAO and CASA require student pilots to meet an English Language Proﬁciency standard. Becker Helicopters partners with TAFE South Australia, an ELICOS approved college, to provide a general English language program. The student completes the English language program when they successfully pass a CASA General English Language Proficiency (GELP) Assessment.
- Aviation English
Becker Helicopters has developed an Aviation English course designed to transition students between English language and ﬂight training. It focuses on aviation speciﬁc vocabulary, radio communications and standards. It also incorporates a theory preparation phase, where the student becomes familiar with the theory materials, classroom protocols and assessment tools prior to commencing ﬂight operations.
