In the past, LA Helicopter provided training for both Akagera Aviation and Rwanda Air Police pilots

 

Statement from LAH Helicopters :

 

During the period 1st - 17th March, LA Helicopter's Chief Pilot Guillaume Maillet and Assistant Chief Instructor Giles Haybittle provided a bespoke training course in the Republic of Rwanda.

A long time business customer of Los Angeles Helicopters, Akagera Aviation is a full service helicopter operator, with services ranging from sightseeing and training through to aircraft sales and maintenance.

 

"Working with foreign pilots is always an exciting endeavor as we share our strict FAA training and guidelines and work with these individuals to hone their technical skills," states Guillaume Maillet , Director Operations with Los Angeles Helicopters, LLC. He continues: "Travelling to Rwanda and working with the pilots in their challenging, mountainous environment certainly helped increase their level of proficiency, particularly in the country's mountainous regions; these pilots will go on to safety ferry travelers and tourists to numerous destinations not readily accessible by fixed-wing aircraft."

The LA Helicopters training was a customized Advanced Mountain flight course in the Robinson R44 that will ensure safety of operations in Rwanda's rugged and remote landscape for Akagera's growing operation.
