Fathers can often be the hardest people to buy gifts for. When Julie Parnell found herself in this situation, she gave her dad a life experience: an introductory helicopter flight lesson.
Corporate Helicopters has trained hundreds of helicopter pilots over the years.
Recently, we launched a new web site geared specifically toward the experience of new and returning flight training students: Corporate Helicopters Flight Training Academy.
The site provides prospective students everything they need to know about helicopter flight training, in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.
Corporate Helicopters is now offering a ‘Summer Introductory Flight Lesson’!
You will start your Introductory Flight with 15 minutes of ground school which will cover safety information and how to work the helicopter controls. The Summer Introductory Flight Lesson will fly you and an Instructor over the Southern California coastline for 20 minutes.
Father’s Day is THIS Sunday, June 18, 2017. Are you searching for the perfect gift for Dad? We have the best aerial adventures in San Diego!
We’ve put together some helicopter tour options that will surely impress dad!
On Saturday, February 4th, 2017 Corporate Helicopters’ Flight Training Academy will host an open house. The event will run from 9am-1pm at 3753 John J. Montgomery Drive, Hangar 1, San Diego.
The open house is open to the public and the media is welcome to attend.
The end of this week marked our new International Students 1st week of flight training at Corporate Helicopters! We are thrilled to start training 4 eager students from China. They begin their helicopter flight training journey with Flight Instructor, Jesse Bandelin who is teaching the ground school portion of their training.
The National Test Pilot School (NTPS) is the premier total flight test education and training organization in the world. Once a year, a group of pilots from the NTPS train at Corporate Helicopters for a few days. This year, we were excited to have pilots and engineers from South Korea, Israel, Australia, Sweden and Canada.

Corporate Helicopters offers Introductory Helicopter Flight Lessons for those wanting to try out flying for the day! For $399, you will learn the basics during 30 minutes of ground school, then fly with a helicopter instructor around San Diego.
Flight Training at Corporate Helicopters has been active this summer!
We are pleased to announce the following achievements:
Roy Thomasson’s first airplane logbook entry was in 1945 at the end of WWII.
Roy had never flown in a helicopter, so he decided to take an introductory flight lesson with Tara Sturm, CFII for his 94th birthday celebration!
We would like to congratulate Marshall Jordan on passing his check ride and becoming a Commercial Helicopter Pilot! Marshall has already begun his instrument training and is focused on becoming a CFI and CFII.
Congratulations to Dave Shapiro for passing his check ride and becoming a commercial helicopter pilot.
He is now multi-rated in both helicopters and airplanes, and plans to continue pursuing his passion of aviation.
Dave completed his private and commercial helicopter ratings in a total of just 4 months, way to go Dave!
Congratulations to Elliot Block on being Corporate Helicopters newest recipient of a Private Pilots License. Elliot has been training with us for just over a year. During that time, he was enrolled part time as he was also a full time student at Torrey Pines High School.
Eighteen pilots from various police organizations began their re-currency training in our Bell 206 JetRanger this month.
Chief Pilot Gary Roesink designed this program to garner maximum proficiency in the pilots knowledge and safety of the aircraft, as well as to further develop their flying abilities.
This month, students Caleb Ensley and Jeff Drown both obtained their commercial pilot licenses (pictured), and student Bob Lorenzen obtained his private pilot license.
Congratulations to Jeff Russell on completing his first hour of helicopter flight with Corporate Helicopters!
Jeff said he absolutely loved his Introductory Flight Lesson, and will most definitely pursue his private pilots license in the future.
I want to send my sincerest thanks and gratitude to Ivor Shier, Garner Sheperd, and the Corporate Helicopters team.
Their dedication and efforts, as well as their encouragement, helped me to fulfill my dream of flying helicopters!
