"What can I say, I love this company!! I have been here for a long time and over the years Utah Helicopter has given me ALL the tools I need to be successful as a pilot, flight hours, ratings-including my ATP, and a very thorough understanding of life as a pilot. Utah Helicopter has been behind me as an employee 100% over the course of more than 4 years. I have seen the company make sacrifices during difficult times to keep things moving forward and they have always pulled us through. I am truly flattered to be such a large part of a strong-willed, honest, and hard-working company. I would also like to say that I have never worked with any group of people that have such an excellent work ethic. So far we have offered 100% of our graduates' employment! We train our students to be the best, the safest and the friendliest employees. This company...this opportunity has changed my life and I will always admire Utah Helicopter."

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!”

Instructor - Utah Helicopter (PIH)
I finished high school and like most people I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I tried college but never really excelled in school. I just kind of scraped by doing what I needed to pass. I think a lot of the reason was because to me, school was boring. I was never motivated to put much more effort than needed. It wasn’t until my brother told me about the exciting career as a helicopter pilot that my interest was sparked...so, I checked it out. After the Demo Flight with my instructor, Cory, I knew there wasn’t anything in the world I would rather do! My instructor at Utah Helicopter tailored his lessons around me and filled class time with facts and stories from him and other pilots. He accepted nothing but the best out of each flight and ground session and truly was “setting the standard for quality and performance one pilot at a time.Read more
