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 training I have received while with Utah Helicopter has not only given me the knowledge, experience, and tools I need to be a successful helicopter pilot in the aviation industry, but I have been able to grow and develop as a person, as well. I...
“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!”

Utah Helicopter gave me the opportunity to follow my dream of flying helicopters."

"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."

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
