Being a helicopter pilot is a passion. It is an amazing and challenging career path. Very few people in the world can call themselves helicopter pilots: they make up less than 10% of all licensed pilots in the US and an even smaller percentage of pilots worldwide. The helicopter pilots are a motley and fascinating group of people who wrestle complicated machines into submission and keep them from balling up on the ground. They are the happy few, living out their passion, flying machines that most think shouldn't be allowed in the air. We share and understand your passion, and we take your goals and ambitions seriously. We will help you turn your dreams into reality.
