New Pilots

Do you have a dream to fly but don’t know where to start? We’re here to help make that a reality.  Whether your dream is to fly for fun or make a career out of it, Jerry Trimble Helicopters provides one on one training for both fixed wing and rotorcraft in a family (and pet) friendly environment.  Learning to fly is unlike any other endeavor you’ll take on and you deserve nothing but the highest quality of training, so let’s get started!  First off, you’ll need to obtain a FAA class 3 medical (to locate a  Aviation Medical Examiner click here).  Although, you don’t need this to begin your training we recommend getting it early. After that, one of our flight instructors will help you register for your student pilot license, this will allow you to fly solo.  Finally, if you wish to get a head start, the books we recommend are the Helicopter Flying Handbook, FAR/AIM (Federal Aviation Regulations/Aeronautical Information Manual), and the R-22 POH (Pilot Operating Handbook), as for our syllabus give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to send you a copy.  The program price is available here and as always give us a call if you have questions.  Have a great day and fly safe!
