What our pilots have to say

Very professional team of CFIIs, Independent operates 9 helicopters and keeps them in perfect shape for safe education. Ground education can be accomplished with an in-house designed ground school, which I found very helpful during exam preparation. The kind of preparing students for the written FAA PPL test led to a 97% result on my side, thanks to the Independent Helicopters team's competence.
