Aircraft

We fly the  Cabri Guimbal G2 and the Robinson R44. The Cabri G2 is the safest and most modern training helicopter on the market and at

$575/hr definitively the most reasonable helicopter. The 95/5 blend of hours allows you to minimize cost while flying safely and adding an endorsement on the most sold helicopter in North America, the Robinson R44.  This will probably be the aircraft you will start working on in the future.  

Safety

Our highest priority. Learn more about our efforts to operate our company as safely as possible.  We do not compromise safety.
