Corporate Helicopters has been the provider of choice for aerial support services for the NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally, a 5 day international off road motorsports event. We have utilized their services for both emergency evacuation plans and enhanced media relations (photography and videography). Always reliable and efficient, their world-class service and top-notch equipment enables us to put total confidence in their capabilities, reduce costs and streamline logistics. Between Ivor, Mandy and their pilots, you won’t find a nicer team to work with.

My experience from initial enrollment to completion of FAR Part 141 Private Pilot Helicopter Course, Robinson R-22 Beta 2, with Corporate Helicopters has been nothing short of absolute excellence. The atmosphere and environment provided by the staff and CFI’s consistently maintained the utmost level of professionalism, always keeping safety a top priority. Lessons were concise and well integrated into the current publications for Helicopter/Rotorcraft Aviation. Corporate Helicopters provided me with a knowledge base and pilot skillset that when carried into my FAA Check Ride, my FAA Examiner (Robinson Helicopters Chief Test Pilot!) was inclined to comment that my Oral Exam was excellent, that I was in fact very well prepared, further stating that my Practical Test was of Commercial Pilot quality. He then complemented my CFI Bryan Pederson as well as Corporate Helicopters for producing an excellent addition to the General Aviation community. Bryan accompanied me to the Check Ride and while initially nervous of my CFI being present it was a confidence building experience, many of which Bryan has provided throughout my training. I highly recommend Corporate Helicopters for anyone seeking Flight Instruction.
