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.

"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."

“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!”
