North West Service is an entity that has devoted itself to the professional training of helicopter pilots since 2001 with passion, reliability and perseverance, with the aim of ever improving the quality of its services. This has become its core business.
The headquarters are located in Busano, a few kilometers far from Torino, and the Flying School on HELICOPTERS is EASA certified as Approved Training Organization ATO IT.0044, according to the European standards for the thorough training of helicopter pilots. An executive/technical staff, made up of skilled and reliable members, is in charge of the training.
Since September 2018, North West Service has acquired EASA certification for air transport by helicopter AOC Air Operator Certificate, which leads it today to become an airline with a renewed fleet.
Thanks to the dynamic skills of our business department, we have developed some major synergies with relevant companies operating in the sector, which enables us to widen the palette of the training services provided. Thus, we create a direct contact to the real job world with helicopters. Through this continuous cooperation with flying companies and the typology and variety of the proposed qualifications, NWS has become a reference point both for civil and military pilots who must either integrate or renew their flying licenses. Instructors and examiners with certified experience and skills jointly work with us to provide a number of courses on single and twin-engine planes. The training is performed both on the aircraft and by using FNPTII flight simulators in Italy and Full Flight Simulators abroad.
After consolidating the relationship with such institutional partners as Croce Rossa Italiana Area III Emergencies, in the last few years NWS has developed competence and qualifications in the RPAS (Remote Piloting Airmobile Systems) sector, and now it ranks as the first ENAC acknowledged Training Center in the field.
The Balloon courses round out the choice of professional courses provided and make us today the sole training institution for this activity in Italy.
Courses catering to everybody’s requirements, from privates to professionals, from Italian to foreign companies in need for specific qualifications for their own pilots.
The ground courses round out the package of the services on tap.
