"The flight training I received with Utah Helicopter allowed me to progress in my career as a pilot. I was flying in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, covering breaking news for CBS, NBC, and FOX. Now I'm instructing in these beautiful aircraft for the US Army and loving every minute of it. Dedicated flight instructors and a "pay-as-you-go" system was just what I needed to get my career off the ground."

“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'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 experience with Utah Helicopter Academy was nothing but positive! I had received my Private, Instrument and Commercial ratings at another school in the area and went to UTH to obtain my Flight Instructor and Instrument Flight Instructor ratings. I was very impressed with Utah Helicopter and wish I would have started my flight training with them from the beginning. If you're looking at different schools in the area to get your training do not look any further! Utah Helicopter is a great school and they won't send you all over the country to get your training and take your check rides."

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
