"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."

“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!”

Instructor - Utah Helicopter...
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
