Service Highlight: Flight School

It’s hard to pick a favorite service when we have so much fun with all of the different things that we get to do and offer at Independent Helicopters. That said, there is something really unique and special about our flight school program. Getting to share our passion and teach others about what we love so much is one of the most rewarding things, and sharing that experience is simply incredible.

Our flight school is a very comprehensive training program that dives into the nuts and bolts of helicopter aviation, from safety to basic flight skills and even emergency maneuvers in our Fresca Flight Simulator (how cool!). So if you’re on the market for something really incredible to do with your time, or have just always wanted to learn more about aviation, our Flight School is a great way to get your feet off the ground.

Girl Scouts and Aviation

Raise your hand if Girl Scout Cookie season is your favorite season. At Independent Helicopters we love hosting the Girl Scouts to teach them all about what we do, how the business has grown, and all of the potential they have to do great things not only within the Girl Scout program, but beyond! As a certified Woman Owned Business, cultivating a passion in young girls is one of the most rewarding things for us. They might not know it yet, but their potential is literally limitless. The girls are always so eager and challenge us by asking some really great questions. Girl Scout days are always a nice break from our usual day-to-day, and it’s so fun to share what we love. Lucy gets a really kick out of it, too! We’re looking forward to hosting some more troops in the coming months, and getting the Boy Scouts involved as well!

Dreaming of warmer weather…

We’re so lucky that the February temperatures have been so good to us, but it still seems like summer days are still so far away. After some quality time perusing YouTube we stumbled across this video of an R44 helicopter tour in Hawaii. These are the same helicopters we use, just half a world away! It’s always fun to watch videos like this and see how different an experience can be when you’re in a totally unique setting. The scenery we get to explore in the Northeast is just as beautiful, but it’s hard not to envy the year-long high temps of Hawaii. Are you daydreaming of summer plans, too?
