Tuesday, December 2, 2008 our “Hangar Chat” will consist of three of NEH Alumni that fly or have flown off-shore.
Christopher Grundy will be attending. Chris flies the S-92 and S-76 for PHI (Petroleum Helicopter Inc.) in Corpus Christi, TX.
Bob Lynch who flies for Air Logistics in Louisianna will be attending, and Jason Sohn who also flew for Air Log, but is currently flying tours for Liberty Helicopters in New York City.
This is going to be an AWESOME hangar chat. Rhonda will be making a big feast for everyone so come hungry!
We hope you can attend. Call the school and let Rhonda know if you can attend, so she makes enough food for everyone!
The newest group of students from New York City to join the Northeast family are: Klynt Hay from West New York, NJ, Dalia Rodriguez from NY, NY and Elizabeth Kassman from NY, NY.
Klynt is a professional photographer and that is how he met Liz Kassman who is a model. Dalia is an Independant Contractor. All three are adding “helicopter pilot” to their resumes.
The three of them arranged the same training schedules with their instructors so they can car pool together up to CT. They have back to back classes three days a week and stay at the Northeast Helicopters apartments. It’s working out great! Welcome!

When I first came to Northeast Helicopters I was a little nervous about what I was going to encounter. But that quickly disappeared after I went for my demo flight and then was able to sit down and talk with Rhonda. She quickly made me feel comfortable about the school and the instructors. She helped me throughout my loan process and got me quickly underway.
Since my flight training got started, I’ve learned an incredible amount and feel great about my instructor, Mike, and all the other instructors that make me feel right at home. All the instructors are extremely professional and it makes for a great learning experience. The program moves at a pace that not only makes you comfortable but is comprehensive as well as in depth, and is offering me not only the knowledge, but a lot of the experience that will help me in my future as a helicopter pilot.
