Jordan Dalton, creator of contacted us last week about this great social networking site. Of course it is spreading like wild fire at the school. Please check it out and participate if you want.

Troy Fulton

Welcome to Troy Fulton, our first Post 911 VA student at the school.

Troy relocated from Shadyside, Ohio in January 2010 to attend Westfield State College where he is working towards his four year degree in Bachelor Science and Business Aviation. All of his college so far has been conducted on line, and he is training at NEH three times a week with his CFII, John Simone (back right). The Post 911 program is allowing Troy to fulfill his dreams of becoming a helicopter pilot as well as earning his bachelors degree.

Troy was a helicopter mechanic in the service for 3-1/2 years which made him eligible for the Post 911 program.

Welcome Troy! If you would like more information about the Post 911 program, contact Northeast Helicopters or Westfield State College.
