Aviation Program Fees - Helicopter

FEES 2017 -2018

TVCC flight courses are listed below by course number and title.  The Training Course Outline (TCO) or stage(s) of the TCO used for each course appear on the line immediately following the course title.

The CFI hours programmed below are based on the student flying the minimum number of hours required for each TCO.  VA reimbursement rates are based on the minimum TCO flight time requirements.  Therefore, the tuition and fee totals listed below represent the maximum VA reimbursement for each course. TVCC tuition and program fees are based on the number of credit hours attributed to each course. 

The Insurance fee of $550 is a one-time assessment levied with first flight class taken.

Note: Manufacturer's weight limitation prevents pilots over 240 pounds from flying the R-22.  TVCC does not enroll students weighing in excess of 240 pounds in the Private Pilot Flight Labs.
