Tim came to Northeast Helicopters after getting his Private Pilot Rating in Virginina. He needed a school that was FAA Part 141 approved and worked with the VA so he could utilize his Montgomery GI benefits. He researched and found NEH.
Tim started training at Northeast Helicopters in August 2005, on his Instrument Rating, then Commercial, CFI and CFII. Upon graduation of the program, he became a CFII for NEH in August of 2006. In August of 2007, we were thrilled to have Tim be promoted to Assistant Chief Pilot for NEH.
Our former Chief Pilot, Rick Michaels relocated to Florida this Spring and stepped down as the Chief Pilot. All of Tim’s hard work and hours of teaching over the years gave him the requirements to become the new official “Chief Pilot”.
Tim is very dedicated to Northeast Helicopters and is an incredible asset to the school. We thank you Tim for all your hard work! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Everyone really got alot of information for this course. With John Boulette being a mechanic as well as a pilot, we feel that all the students should be aware of different maintenance and things that they can do and look for, and why.
Plus, we had plenty of good food. Rhonda’s homemade ziti!
Quite the night with all the wings, and other food. We had a lot of fun. Then alumni, Tim Merlino did a fly by with the blackhawk he flies for the military.
This Maintenance Class will cover many topics NOT covered in the standard preflight, POH or the Robinson Safety Course.
At the end of the class an in depth preflight will be conducted with the knowledge obtained in this class.
We will continue to run this maintenance class until everyone has attended. It is mandatory that each student attends this course at some point of their training. This class includes: a Powerpoint presentation, several handouts and hands on training.
Friday, May 14, 2010, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Please call Rhonda to sign up for the class. Food and Beverages are free.
