"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."

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'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!"

“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!”
