It isn’t something you do… it’s something you ~are~.  Whether you are fixed wing qualified or a novice with that inner drive to fly, we can take you into the wonderful world of rotor wing flying. It’s like no other!

Welcome to Rotorcraft Training!

The concept of vertical flight dates back to 400 B.C. when Chinese children played with bamboo flying toys featuring a spinning blade. The name (derived from the french “whirl” and “wing”) was first applied in 1861 for a steam powered craft (that didn’t fly). Helicopters as we know them were first developed around 1936, when Professor Henrich Focke developed this Focke-Wulf 61. By 1942 Igor Sikorsky had gone into full production with an aircraft having one main rotor, and an anti- torque tail. Today the helicopter is ubiquitous as a means of convenient flight - Emergency medical transport Television news coverage Lifting heavy construction loads Spraying agriculture crops You can be in this exciting field!  We can help get you there!
