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
I’ve always wanted to fly for a living. While growing up my dad had an airplane. I think that’s where it all started. After I got married and worked several different jobs, I found that I liked being outside and operating equipment. Helicopters seemed to fit both. My wife and parents gave me a demo flight at a school in Provo, UT and that sealed the deal! I knew that that was what I wanted to do. My dad always said, “Find a job you will enjoy and it won’t be a job…if you know what I mean.” Read more
I got my private license in Saint George, UT with a different flight school. After getting my license I was short on money to continue and could not get a student loan to continue. I found I could get a loan if I had collateral so I bought a Cessna 152. As I was flying around the Sanpete Valley I heard a helicopter coming in to land so I made a radio call and asked which school they were from. The instructor came back on and told me all about this new school that opened in Spanish Fork, UT. A few...
“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!”

“After going to high school I started college like most people do. There was only one problem I had a hard time trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I knew that whatever career I picked would have to be a job that I would love waking up and going to everyday. I continued to go to college for a few years and still wasn’t excited about any career field. One day I decided to go and check out Utah Helicopter of Idaho. A few days later I went on a demo flight and I was sold…I caught the flying bug! The first thing that impressed me about Utah Helicopter was the dedication that it had to its students. My instructors really cared if I succeeded or not. Now that I’m doing what I love to do, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I honestly feel bad for my friends who have to go to their office and push paper everyday and I get to go fly. Utah Helicopter has been a great school to help me reach my goals in the aviation world!”
