Becoming an army helicopter pilot

In this testimonial, a young cadet from the Kuwait Air Force explains the different steps to become an army helicopter pilot. Trained by Defense Conseil International in Dax (France), he received his helicopter pilot wing during a ceremony on November 5, 2016.

The project to create a helicopter pilot training centre in France was launched in 2013. At the end of 2014, the French military authorities approved the idea of installing the centre in the ALAT schools at Dax and Luc-en-Provence.

Following the creation of a school in Qatar in 2012, the International Helicopter Training Centre (CIF-H) is the second military helicopter pilot training centre created by DCI and its local partners. It is intended for foreign forces friendly with the French armed forces.
