Stratus Helicopters, LLC BBB Business Review

"Experience, Professionalism & Reliability"

EXPERIENCE

Our team of experienced flight instructors at Stratus Helicopters is dedicated to the professional development of each and every student.  We DO NOT believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to training that is often found in "cookie-cutter" flight schools with inexperienced flight instructors looking to build flight time.  We teach practical helicopter flying skills along with a solid foundation of skills a professional pilot will utilize throughout their career.

Our current flight instructor staff includes dedicated professionals who each have more than 1000 hours of real-world flying experience.  Our Chief Flight Instructor, Matt Johnson, has years of flying several different commercial operations including law enforcement and electronic news gathering.  He is a nationally recognized author and regular contributor to Vertical Magazine where he writes about safety and training related topics.  CLICK HERE to read our Chief Flight Instructors latest articles.

Most flight schools train students to the level of being able to pass a very basic check ride (test).  We take you further in training.  Our goal is to make you a safe, reliable and confident helicopter pilot.  Simply put, we believe in making the skies safe for you and for all in the air and on the ground.  This is what makes our flight training different.  This is what makes us stand out and puts us a cut above the rest and we want to prove it!  Come train with us!

PROFESSIONALISM

Whether you are training towards a private pilot certificate to fly for pleasure or are pursuing advanced ratings, we treat every student with respect and professionally.  We do not make promises that we cannot meet.  We are true to our word.  We are flexible to work with your schedule and financial responsibilities.

We don't take your hard-earned money and give you broken promises often found at helicopter flight schools.  If the job market looks promising or if it looks bleak, we will be the first to tell you that.  We strongly encourage a pay-as-you-go relationship and require no large sums of money upfront.

RELIABILITY

By utilizing modern, reliable equipment for your training we avoid the "being down for maintenance" problem that plagues many flight schools.  Our helicopters are equipped with modern avionics and navigation equipment as they are an absolute necessity for future professional pilots.  Our teaching techniques and skills are second to none, but above all else, we teach safety, responsible airman ship, and the practical skills necessary to make you a confident pilot.
