NEH is unlike any other helicopter flight school I’ve seen or read about. Many schools out there are tiny with a fleet of maybe two helos and one or two instructors. NEH has a beautiful, large fleet of helos that are very well kept by their onsite knowledgeable mechanics. The CFII’s here are top notch, and are held to the highest standards, not to mention there are plenty of them, so it’s easy to fly often. You learn one-on-one with your instructor, which is the easiest and best way to become the best pilot you can. They teach us and test us to a high degree, making us reach beyond the “minimum requirements.” This isn’t some rinky-dink school. NEH has got a large hangar and classrooms all to themselves, and are HELICOPTERS ONLY!!! That was a big thing for me, I didn’t want to be stuffed into the “helicopter school” designated corner or room in some airplane school hangar, (which many other schools are). We are all about HELOS here! It’s a lot like a big family. It’s a lot of fun, I’d never go anywhere else.
