Private Pilot Add-onIf you already hold a Private Pilot fixed wing license, the cheapest option to learn to fly helicopters is to "add on" a Private Pilot helicopter license. Doing your training this way, you only have to fly 30 hours instead of 35 hours minimum and do not have to take a written exam.
