Ellena, Alberto – Chile – about NEH

Dear Rhonda and John:

It has been just over four months since I started training at Northeast Helicopters. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that NEH is the most professional flight school I’ve ever seen in 30 years, and I’ve had a very challenging and positive experience. I would also like to add that the hangar, the instructors and the maintenance staff cannot be better. In addition, Mike Rosenbush is a very qualified instructor and an extraordinary person.

Nick had 22.2 hours when he flew his first solo. Hard to believe 17 days and already going solo!

Nick deserves a great big “CONGRATULATIONS” for this achievement. Good Job!
