Monday Funday

If you can’t tell, at Independent Helicopters we love what we do. We are passionate about our work and being able to share it with the community, which we are lucky to do nearly every day. Getting to take people up in the air, be it for a romantic Hudson Valley tour or to survey a pipeline trail, the looks of awe on our passenger’s faces get us every time. This weekend we were lucky to get up in the air and see some green starting to sprout along the Hudson (finally!) and explore what’s going on in the area. There’s a lot happening! We also feel very lucky to be able to keep the fun going past the weekend. A quick charter flight to NYC or Saratoga definitely spices up our Monday!

We hope you enjoy following along with us on social media, and if you don’t, please do! And just remember… if you ever need to break up your Monday routine, give us a call!

LLS Campaign Half-Way Point!

Today marks the halfway point in Matt’s campaign as he runs for LLS Man of the Year. Again, we’d like to thank everyone who’s come out to support us so far at our Kickoff, Paint and Sip, and 5k! It’s all been a blast. We are so lucky to have such a strong community of passionate people like you following the campaign and supporting our efforts. With just about a month left until the grand finale, we are really excited for our Helicopter Paintball tomorrow and May 7th, and the Fly In Breakfast on April 30th! Your continued support means so much to us as we fight against such a terrible disease.

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.
