Shadows of helicopter blades flutter over the New England countryside. The pilot peers out over rolling hills, jagged mountains, and winding coastline, where sailboats ply the choppy waters. C-R Helicopters helps students and passengers discover these heady views during private FAA flight lessons, scenic tours, and aerial photography flights. Pilots train protégés for private, instrument, and commercial pilots’ licenses, as well as Certified Flight Instructor levels I and II and Airline Transport Pilot certificates. They begin each program with a one-on-one ground school in classrooms and a heated hanger before putting students behind the controls of two-seat Robinson R22 Beta II helicopters. When not helming flights, C-R Helicopters’ staffers are authorized to deal, safety check, maintain, and secretly whisper to those same Robinson helicopters.
