"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!"

"Utah helicopter has given me the opportunity to make a living while never really having to work. I have always enjoyed looking into aviation but with Utah Helicopter’s help I was able to make my dream become a career. I was walked through possibilities for my financing to make school a reality. I always knew what I was signing up for and it was always made known what would be expected of me. Utah Helicopter always had an honest and straight forward attitude toward me in both school and billing. I feel like I would not have received as much one-on-one help at any another school. Read more
As far as a career as a Helicopter Pilot, I am extremely excited! Not only do I have the ability to accomplish my financial goals, I also have the tools to accomplish many many other goals as well. I enjoy not being cooped up in an office all day and take great pride in watching my students learn and grow and become better pilots while attaining their own dreams. As a pilot, I will get to travel the world if I want or have a job that puts me home every night whether...
“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!”

In 2007 I made the decision I wanted to fly helicopters. At the time I knew nothing about helicopters or the aviation industry, but for whatever reason I was drawn to flying and I knew I wanted to become a pilot. There were several flight training schools at which I looked into enrolling, but Utah Helicopter stood out among them all. From the first time I walked in the door at Utah Helicopter I liked the vibe, so to speak, and I knew this was a place where I was going to receive a quality education. All throughout my training the administrative staff was always so helpful with such things as assisting me navigate the unknown territory of student loans, and instructors were willing to spend whatever time was necessary to ensure that I understood the concepts they were teaching and that I was well prepared to become a competent and confident pilot.
