Utah Helicopter Flight Academy
Located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, the Idaho Falls area, and now St. George, Utah, we have access to some of the very best flying environments that provide for the ultimate training experience. You'll learn to fly Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters in varied and spectacular airspace.
What a rush it is to go out for your first time! The best part of it is that most seasoned helicopter pilots would say that it still feels that way when they fly.
Financial Aid - Responsive to financial matters
Obtaining flight instruction is a multi-faceted financial endeavor that is affected by variable factors-how much flight certification you're seeking, the number of hours it takes you to actually complete your studies and the cost of fuel. It's no secret that learning how to fly requires a substantial financial investment. And that's why we have set up an accounting system that will allow you to know in advance exactly what you're paying for and have online access to your current account balances at any time. After clarifying what you're buying, the most common question is, "How will I pay for this?" Just know that we are a valuable resource in this department as well. We can direct you to many ways to finance your aviation education.
Utah Helicopter offers up to 100% financing on approved credit (may be available for those who qualify).
