"I'm buying/building a Mosquito XE3 kit helicopter and completed my first 10 hours of training (a kit requirement) at Utah Helicopter, which was the most intense and thrilling experience of my entire life! The instructors were very insightful and customized parts of my training with the kit in mind. I'm hoping to finish my private rating and Mosquito by this fall and can hardly wait to fly again with the folks at UTH!"

My name is Robert Dennis and I am a Flight Instructor at Utah Helicopter in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I have wanted to fly ever since I was old enough to walk. Over the years many people told me that I wouldn't be able to be a pilot due to all sorts of uneducated reasons. After spending about 18 years driving over the road trucks and working construction, I decided it was time to talk to people that were actually making a living in the aviation industry. What I found was a lot of people that loved their jobs. After looking into many different flight schools and making a visit to an Aviation Medical Examiner to get my Student Pilot Certificate, I started flight training at Utah Helicopter here in Idaho Falls. I made it through the program and was quickly hired on as an instructor here. Now, I am one of those people that love coming to work. The potential in the industry has me very excited about the future. The schooling is a big investment, but when you look at the pay scale and the jobs that are available in the helicopter industry, it can easily be recovered. If...Read more
“During my time as a student at Utah Helicopter I lived with other kids that were attending college and I would always hear them complaining about having to go in to class or just how much they hated going to school. Here at Utah Helicopter I never felt that way once. I was never unhappy to be at school. It’s a great learning environment where the instructors cared about your progress and wanted you to be the best. I feel that’s what really got me through school and kept me motivated to keep studying at home…of course you can’t leave out that flying is just a blast! Utah Helicopter is a great school with great instructors to help you meet your goals in aviation!”

I don’t even know where to start. Utah helicopter has been invaluable in my progress as a pilot and getting my career as a helicopter pilot off and rolling. When a colleague of mine was working on his fixed wing ratings it got me to thinking and stewing over doing that myself. That night I got online and filled out some random helicopter flight schools info page and a few days later Utah Helicopter called me back and the rest is history. I worked way more than full time while going through Utah Helicopters career program. Without the one on one instructor flexibility I’m confident I wouldn’t have been able to do what I have done and in the time that I did it in. My wife, family, and I are all grateful for the knowledgeable and personable instructors, office staff and owners of Utah Helicopter. I felt part of the “family” from the very first day I walked into the office. Now that I am instructing with Utah Helicopter I love the just culture that allows us to feel safe and comfortable. I do not “work” for a living anymore. I am very fortunate to absolutely love what I...Read more
