Mountain Ridge Helicopters
Mountain Ridge Helicopters is located 4,500 feet above sea level—and that's just its hangar. The FAA-approved school is nestled in the Rocky Mountains in a 10,000-square-foot hangar, where experienced pilots impart the essentials of helicopter flight to students. The scenic environs are beautiful from the ground but majestic from a helicopter. With the help of US Department of Veterans Affairs–approved flight instructors and simulators, students can experience the sweeping views from above while learning to pilot helicopters and earning their licenses.
