We have purpose built classrooms for lectures and pre and post flight briefing rooms and we provide the student with qualified instructors for the ground school subjects. As our facilities are approved by the IAA, students can undergo the EASA examinations conveniently in-house at the NFC training centre.NFC have been providing helicopter charter services for a number of years and isa licensed AOC operator, approved and registered by the IAA.
