Civic is a self contained environment where everything a student needs to complete their training is provided. We are a manufacturer certified service center and parts distributor for all the helicopters we operate and train in and we own the aircraft we operate in, thus our aircraft are exceptionally well maintained and we have consistent and reliable access to training aircraft. We fuel our own helicopters; thus a student will not need to leave Civic to get fuel. Our instructors provide training for a full spectrum of ratings including Private, Commercial, CFI(I), Instrument, and ATP as well as external lift and turbine transition training. We also have a computer testing facility on site to provide written exams. In addition, our administrative staff provides assistance in everything from finding living accommodations to financing support.
