Flight School


FAA-approved part 141 Pilot School offering VA Flight Training

Hummingbird Aviation is the only pilot school in Minnesota approved by the FAA to offer both fixed wing airplane and rotary wing helicopter flight training. Hummingbird is also the only pilot school in Minnesota approved to offer VA flight training under Chapter 30 and Chapter 33 for both airplane and helicopter training. We are dedicated and passionate about aviation and our commitment to helping you achieve your aviation goals.

Fixed Wing Flight School

When choosing a flight school, we certainly agree that price is important; but equally important is: location, quality of training, reputation, instructor commitment, and overall value.

Helicopter Flight School

We offer private pilot, commercial pilot, instrument pilot, instructor pilot and instrument instructor pilot helicopter ratings.

Ground School

We offer FAA-approved Part 141 private pilot helicopter and airplane ground schools. Our written materials and comprehensive instruction will prepare you for the FAA Knowledge Test and much, much more. Just ask one of our many satisfied customers.


It is often difficult to find affordable financing for helicopter flight training. Hummingbird Helicopters is pleased to offer you options to finance your education!

FAA, TSA and Medical Requirements

The bottom line of the FAA regulations is that they require a minimum of 40 hours of flight training, as well as a passing grade on a written examination. Due to the volume of knowledge and the level of skill required, very few students are ready to take the test at that stage. A more realistic estimate is 50 hours, and we have based our prices on this figure. In addition, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) now requires that you provide proof of US citizenship BEFORE you begin training. You may present a valid US Passport of original certified Birth Certificate to your flight instructor as verification. Hummingbird is approved by the TSA to train foreign students.
