    Testimonials

    Here’s what our happy graduates have to say about our services:

    I began my training at Foothills Heli in October 2020 and finished in March 2021.

    Thanks to the great instructors and foothills operational connections I landed a job right after I graduated.

    Shane, AAA - Heli Pilot

    I’m so thankful that I went to FHTA for my CHPL. The small class size makes for a personalized learning experience where everyone truly wants you to succeed. From trying out long-lining, night flying and landing on mountain tops, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience

    Andrea, Access Heli Pilot

    I could not have wished for a better experience than what I had at Foothills Helicopter Training Academy. FHTA provided thorough flight training, an intimate classroom setting, competent ground/flight instructors and a friendly, supportive environment. The program provides a comprehensive, bridged version of the heavily, loaded subject of helicopter flying.

    Stephanie, Access Heli Pilot

    I always felt that I was a top priority to all of the instructors and staff, the environment at Foothills Helicopter Training Academy made it a breeze to get into my dream career!

    Chase, Commercial Heli Pilot
