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 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
At Utah Helicopter the owners and instructors want to see you succeed and will do all that they can to make sure this happens. Without this company’s love and dedication to the industry and its students I know I wouldn’t be where I...
When our son graduated high school he did not want to go to college, he wanted to fly helicopters. We met a guy from our hometown who recently got his training and private pilot license from Utah Helicopter. He could not stop talking about what a top notch school this was. At first we were apprehensive about sending him 17 hours from home to a place where he didn’t know anybody. So we flew to SLC to check it out. As soon as we met the crew we knew immediately this was where we wanted him to be. The instructors and office staff are young professionals who know their stuff. The curriculum is straight forward and structured with a high emphasis on safety which raised our comfort level as parents. They took him right in and made him part of their “family”. Todd recently received his private pilot license and is going back in the Fall to work on his commercial certification. Thanks to all at Utah Helicopter!Read more

"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'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!"
