Located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, we have access to some of the very best flying environments that provide for the ultimate training experience. You'll learn to fly Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters in varied and spectacular airspace. Utah is renowned for the best snow on earth, and these are the formidable mountains that are blanketed by it for a majority of the year. Learning to fly in a high-altitude flight environment demands greater finesse and better energy management than at sea level. So, right from the start, you'll be learning to operate aircraft at or near their performance limitations-the type of mountainous flight experience many employers are seeking. The second location advantage is that you'll be introduced to two classifications of airspace in the metropolitan Salt Lake City area-Class B and Class D. This means that you will be exposed to a variety of essential air traffic controller language that will broaden your knowledge base and experience.

What a rush it is to go out for your first time! The best part of it is that most seasoned helicopter pilots would say that it still feels that way when they fly. The challenge of a helicopter is like sitting on top of a large ball that you need to maneuver so that you don't slip forward, backward or to either side. You might be wondering if that makes helicoptering harder than flying a fixed-wing airplane. We look at the experience of piloting helicopters in a different way-as an exciting, fun, multi-dimensional challenge. Rather than just manage the linear motion of an airplane, you literally fly a helicopter. You learn to be in constant control of opposing forces while you're aloft and, essentially, master how to be "on the ball."

A great way to get this feeling is to schedule a Discovery Flight. By doing so, you'll also have an opportunity to visit our flight school, meet our phenomenal staff and get familiarized with our training style. First you'll get a brief overview of helicoptering basics in our ground school, and then one of our Utah Helicopter flight instructors will take you up for a hands-on flight. For most people, it's an experience they never forget-one that solidifies their vision to become a pilot.

After visiting us it will be clear that our ongoing objective at Utah Helicopter is to create an ideal flight training environment. From experience, we realize that it's the special attention to crucial key factors that differentiate the few great schools from the adequate ones.

West Jordan is a city in Salt Lake County, Utah, United States. West Jordan is a rapidly growing suburb of Salt Lake City and possesses a mixed economy, having moved beyond being simply a bedroom community for Salt Lake City. As of the 2000 Census, the city had a population of 68,336; by 2008, West Jordan had an estimated population of 104,447, placing it as the fourth most populated in the state. The city occupies the southwest end of the Salt Lake Valley at an elevation of 4,330 feet (1,320 m). Named after the nearby Jordan River, the limits of the city begin on the river's western bank and end in the eastern foothills of the Oquirrh Mountains, where Kennecott Copper Mine, the world's largest man-made excavation, is located.

Settled in the mid-19th century, the city has developed into its own regional center. Currently the city has four major retail centers; Jordan Landing is one of the largest mixed-use planned developments in the Intermountain West. Companies headquartered in West Jordan include Mountain America Credit Union, Lynco Sales & Service, SME Steel, and Cyprus Credit Union. The city has one major hospital, Jordan Valley, and a campus of Salt Lake Community College, which is designed to become the main campus upon completion in 2020.

City landmarks include Gardner Village, established in 1850 and the historic Sugar Factory, built in 1916. It is also the location of South Valley Regional Airport, formerly known as "Salt Lake Airport #2". The airport serves general aviation operations as well as a base for the Utah Army National Guard for Apache and Black Hawk helicopters.
