Blue Ridge Helicopters, Inc.

Ron Carroll's fascination with helicopters began in Vietnam, when the aircraft transported him and his fellow infantry through the jungles to the front lines. Two Purple Hearts, nearly 20 years, and a stint in the publishing industry later, Carroll happened upon a copy of Flying magazine and his interest quickly rekindled. He continued with flying lessons, deepening his desire to become a helicopter pilot.

Today, Carroll possesses a Gold Seal CFI certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and helms a team of three pilots with more than 25,000 combined hours of flight experience. With a fleet comprising Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters—as well as a TruFlite H flight simulator that lets aspiring pilots practice operating a helicopter while singing and without leaving the ground—the team has trained throngs of airmen, including Governor Sonny Perdue.

Customer Reviews

It was great fun. Our pilot was a delight. Would love to do it again
Howell R. · August 12, 2013
Pilot/owner Ron was extremely nice and flexible. He was very informative throughout the ride and made the experience very pleasurable.
Kathryn C. · August 8, 2013
By far the best date I've ever been on!! The staff is very nice as friendly, and was very punctual with time. Before going up I secretly told the pilot that I was going to ask a girl out while in the air and he suggested the best view for asking the question. Thankfully she said yes! The flight was amazing and a lot of fun for us both. I will be back to train/test for my helicopter license with Blue Ridge! Thank you!!!
