Our pilot was great! He took the time to talk to us and we were able to get to know him! I would definitely (and I already have) suggest this company to other people.

Wonderful experience! Pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and relaxed enough to enjoy the flight and even took the controls for a bit under careful direction. I would highly recommend the flight lesson to anyone with an interest in learning more.

This was a wonderful experience! Joe did an awesome job of training and making the ride fun! There is a picnic area so if you have time take food and relax and watch all the action before or after your lesson

From Our Editors

Joe Newkirk can still recall the look on the 9-year-old's face when she gazed out of the helicopter window. The girl, who suffered from vision problems, won an essay contest themed "Live Life in HD." Among the contest's donated prizes—which included a zamboni ride—Newkirk contributed a helicopter experience. As he saw the girl transfixed by the view at 1,000 feet, he recognized how her experienced mirrored his first time in the air. "The feeling you get, it's a feeling of freedom." Hence the name, Freedom Helicopters.

Originally a design engineer for a helicopter manufacturer, Newkirk found himself less interested in engineering parts and more fascinated by how the machines could lift straight off the ground without a runway start or being kicked by a Rockette. After obtaining his Federal Aviation Administration license, he recognized the scarcity of experienced pilots due to the military's increasing retention of helicopter operators. Today, Newkirk and his team of fellow FAA licensed pilots work to remedy the shortage and help people cross an experience of their bucket lists by turning over the controls of Robinson helicopters capable of sustaining speeds of 130 miles per hour. Backed by training from Newkirk's team, Freedom Helicopters' alumni have gone from zero hours of experience to leading helicopter tours through the Grand Canyon and saving lives as medical evacuation specialists.
