A fun place to come learn
Northeast Helicopters is an intimate family operated business. We are the largest helicopter flight school in the Northeast, but the family environment we provide makes students and customers feel very welcome. You are not just a "number" at Northeast Helicopters. You will appreciate the one-on-one training which allows you the student, to progress at a pace that is comfortable for you.
Our staff of instructors are all former students who make your learning experience enjoyable and fun. With Ellington Airport (7B9) located about 10 miles from Bradley International (KBDL) we can offer a relaxed airspace environment to learn in, yet close enough to tower controlled airports to fine tune your skills as a well-rounded pilot.
Because of our impeccable reputation for producing safe, high quality pilots, many of the same companies continually hire our graduates. The networking is exceptional and your name on our alumni's resume will surely be recognized.
