At Prairie Helicopters Inc. we set up a student account for each student. Once accepted, students are expected to make a deposit. This deposit usually covers the cost of ground school, books and 5 hours of flying, depending upon which program they are enrolling in. Students then continue to make installments as they progress through the program. The cost of ground school and books will be deducted immediately from their account. The cost of flying is deducted from the balance on an “as used basis” which is cost-per-hour of helicopter X hour(s) of each flight. If a student decides that they cannot finish the program, for whatever reason, we refund whatever balance is left minus a $ 250.00 administration fee.
