Sydney Airspace Training

Sydney and Bankstown airspace environment enables intensive practices of essential radio-communication procedures in the early stage of the flying training. Air familiarization in both the controlled and non-controlled airspace environment is also of prime importance to demonstrate competency in flying in the appropriate class of airspace.

Also this diversity of airspaces reflected by its traffic and procedures will help developing your situational awareness to maintain safety at all times, enhance your sense of responsibility as a pilot in command and define superior flying skills.

Helicopter Training at Bankstown Airport

The western area of Bankstown Airport offers a helicopter training area that we use for basic training i.e. hovering.

From time to time, operations may be undertaken at one of the secondary bases like Camden aerodrome for solo circuits, low level and autorotation exercises.

Sydney non-controlled airspace (OCTA) includes fantastic areas such as the Northern Beaches, the Blue Mountains, the Hunter Valley… which you will overfly during navigation exercises.
There are several different navigation routes from Bankstown airport offering diversity in landmarks and topography i.e. populated areas, bushland, mountainous relief, coastal lanes over water; and in airspaces i.e. Restricted, Danger and Prohibited areas; Controlled airspace CTA/CTR and NDB/VOR facilities to make use of radio aids.

We also have specific lane of entry procedures and helicopter access corridors such as the famous Parramatta river to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Introduction to radar CTA/CTR procedures are possible with Sydney airport/Mascot.

To us, Bankstown airport is an ideal location close to diverse training environment from where we are able to readily and timely operate all of the air exercises, reach the instructional objectives and meet the completion standards.

Problems associated with commercial airlines such as delays, inflexible schedules, missed flight connections, overbooking, and cattle-car mentality, are only a few of the many challenges facing a traveller.

The private customized solution offered by HTT will solve all these problems at once. We can charter you in the NSW regional area.

Helicopter choice depends upon: number of passengers, comfort level, airspeed, and cost. Small piston helicopter are generally used for short and medium haul of fewer passengers at a lower rate. The higher hourly rate, but faster turbine helicopter, is more suitable for medium to long haul. The faster turbine is sometimes more economical than the slower piston which, even at a lower hourly rate, will require more flight hours and refuelling stops to cover the same distance. The best solution for the shortest haul is always the helicopter, which is able to directly connect major airport hubs or isolated private residences in the country-side.

Q Can you do Sydney Scenic Flights?

30 Min Sydney Scenic Helicopter Flight:

Departing from our helipad at Bankstown Airport, we fly North past Sydney Olympic Park. Your friendly pilot will provide a running commentary of the flight while you take in the spectacular sights of Parramatta River followed by an amazing panoramic view of Sydney CBD as you enter the harbour.

From the comfort of one of HTT's modern helicopters you can take photos of the Bridge and Opera House as we circle the harbour. At 1000 feet (about 300m) we're at the perfect height for some once in a lifetime photo opportunities.

We then head back up the Paramatta River and over Olympic Park as we return to Bankstown Airport. You're welcome to come and enjoy tea and coffee back at our hangar and have your photo taken with our helicopters on the ground as well. Total flight time is approximately 30 minutes but the memories last forever.

One person can enjoy a scenic flight in the Guimbal Cabri G2. Couples or families can be accommodated in either an R44 or a Bell 206 Jetranger.

Whether you are a shutter bug, an overseas visitor to our fine city or just a local looking to see a side of Sydney you've never experienced before a half hour scenic flight over the harbour is truly breathtaking.
