United Aviation was excellent. The airport didn't have a lot of traffic, so I was able to spend all of my time training rather than waiting for clear airspace. My instructor was great too. As a former Chinook pilot and instructor at West Point, he knew what he was talking about, and I felt comfortable pushing my limits. By the end of my hour, I was hovering and moving the helicopter around field. Small movements only, but it felt great.

The instructor Dave was incredibly helpful and informative. He taught us a lot of interesting facts about flying in a very short period of time and made it easy for us to understand. Very cool getting to steer the plane; really enjoyed this experience!

Great instructor and experience. Great setup and free snacks. Nice quiet airport which is ideal for flying. Instructor was late which was the only negative. I would consider a follow-up lesson. 1 hour would be better than 30 minutes.

The people at United Aviation Academy were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, patient...I can't say enough about them! If you have any inclination to take a discovery flight, or learn to fly fixed wing or helicopter, then this is the place! My Highest recommendation. Just go.

From Our Editors

The licensed, FAA-certified instructors at United Aviation Academy employ a fleet of helicopters and airplanes that serve as airborne classrooms for students enrolled in instructional programs that range from introductory flights to full commercial-pilot certifications. Since the academy does not reside at a busy airport, students never have to wait for runway clearance before taking off and enjoying the magnificent views of the Hudson Valley from on high. On the ground, the academy grants its pilot's license candidates access to instruction, conference rooms, and offices for quiet study and uninterrupted experiments with paper airplane folding. The outfit's Redbird FMX flight simulator also allows for highly realistic earthbound practice within a fully enclosed cockpit, complete with more than 200 degrees of wraparound visuals and a wealth of training scenarios.
