It enables you not only to fly for fun or travel, but also to take with you your family members or friends.

  • Theory – in cyber space, using distance learning opportunities via Internet.
  • Experienced instructors. With them You will feel safe from the first seconds being on the helicopter.
  • Flexible lectures and flights schedule. Not You, but we will adjust aerial education to Your agenda.

I am a businessman, so I don‘t have a lot of free time, that is why I wanted to have a plan of lectures as early as possible. And how I was surprised when flying school AFA said that there is no lecture schedule, and the instructor will be ready to work with me when I will have time! This kind of flexibility and attention to the student as AFA I haven‘t seen in any other place. Learn to fly in „Aviacom Flight Academy“ I recommend to everyone.

Why it‘s useful learn to fly with a helicopter in AFA?

Nr. 1  

Flexible lectures and flight schedule. 

No "conveyor" training.

 Every student is very important for us. 

Aerial studies and flights we will adapt to your needs and possibilities.


Nr. 2 

First flights with the helicopter „Robinson“ R-44, 

 perhaps the most popular helicopter in the world, 

with which people learn to fly.

 Its exploitation is relatively cheap, and the piloting principles are simple. 

This is the helicopter that aviation novices need.


Nr. 3 

Experienced instructors. The instructor will be the most important person to you while learning to fly, so it is very important that you would trust him from the beginning. We guarantee this because our instructors are:

  • - experienced pilots,
  • - have many years of experience and knowledge of how to teach newcomers to fly,
  • - have a good sense of humor (the instructor must be a serious professional but not a grumpy cat).

Learn 2 fly with helicopter: try DEMO flight

If you wish to become a helicopter pilot, but have some doubts, order a demonstrational flight, where you will be able to invite friends or family members.

During the DEMO flight time you will not only feel the magic of a flying, but also will be able to talk with a pilot-instructor and then decide if you want to learn to fly.

AFA will be happy to arrange you such flight for an attractive price – 70 EUR/30 min. with a helicopter „Robinson“ R-44.   

3 great fears: can I learn to fly with helicopter?


It is never too late to learn to fly. You just have to be at least 16 years old and your health should meet 1 or 2 class medical certificate requirements. From experience we know that people who want to fly and become a pilot are worried by these 3 questions:

If you can drive a car, you will be able to fly. 

It is the answer of „Aviacom Flight Academy“ instructors (who have learned a lot of people to fly) to the question, whether I will ever be able to pilot a helicopter.

Will the health and wearable glasses not preclude? 

If glasses correct vision for a „one“, then you can fly. In order to obtain a 2 level medical certificate, the medical examinations are almost similar to the driving license examinations, but the exact requirements you will know from CAA.

Whether I do not go bankrupt? 

Aviation studies are not cheap, but „Aviacom Flight Academy“ presents pocket friendly price policy, the essence of which consists of 3 points.


Pocket friendly Lithuanian costs. The price level in Lithuania is up 30 % lower than in West/North European countries. According to „Eurostat“ survey 2016, price of hamburger „Big Mac“ was 8 Eur in in Germany and 4,21 Eur in Lithuania; price of 1 l gasoline  – 1,57 Eur in Norway and 1,02 Eur in Lithuania. Because of this unique position in a market, prices for AFA pilot training are lower too. We also don’t have any extra payments for brand or location, so You will not overpay for the same service choosing us.


Transparent costs. AFA propagates a policy of transparent cost. It means, that our students initially are informed about the full price of our services and „hidden“ extra payment do not appear later, as sometimes happens in the other ATOs.

Practical flight training with helicopter

It usually takes from 2 to 4 months to fly all 45 hours with a helicopter „Robinson“ R-44 (flights are conducted from April to October). Flight training schedule is arranged individually, flights on Saturdays and Sundays are possible too.

Out of the hours, a minimum of: 10 hours solo flights in aircrafts under the supervision of an authorized flight instructor, including 5 hours solo cross country flights and, a cross country flight of at least 270 Km. (150 nautical miles), during which landings will be carried out at two different aerodromes.

Flight training is organized in 5 stages: 

1. Learning preparation for flight on the ground procedures.

2. First piloting skills: flights with the instructor, preparation for the 1st independent flight without the instructor, the 1st independent flight.

3. Piloting skills consolidation:  preparation to fly routes independently, 1st independent route flight.

4. Piloting skills test: preparation for final exams.

5. School exams are organized in ATO, and the final theory and flight exams in order to get a Private Pilot License are conducted by Lithuanian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), on the dates specified and supervised by an inspector authorized by the CAA.


Flight bases of ,,Aviacom Flight Academy" (AFA) are in Paluknys aerodrome in Lithuania, 40 km from the capital city Vilnius. Training flights in Lithuania are conducted in Paluknys aerodrome (code EYVP, category 1-A), with 2 ground runways (measurements: 650x50 m and 600x100 m). It is convenient to reach it from Vilnius or staying in Paluknys hotel (in that case You won’t have to worry how to reach the airfield, because the runway and aircrafts will see through window).

One more advantage to make training flights in Paluknys is that around You’ll find a lot of other small aerodromes and Vilnius international airport. So You’ll have great opportunities to practice approaching, landing and take-off flight procedures according to IFR in various environments.
