Pilot testimonial

"I went to Helicopter Academy because they were the only school that could guarantee me a job. I started at another school because I didn't know otherwise but it became apparent that in this school they groom you to a first job and if you don't have a first job your career simply ends. I had my private rating and walked into the office and talked to the manager. He explained quite bluntly the reality of the helicopter flying business. I finished my ratings with HelicopterAcademy.com, got a job flying the corporate boat photo contract as my guaranteed first job and then a job at the Grand Canyon and now Hawaii. It is all because of the hours I gained at this school on the boat photo contract after I received the private rating."
