Columbia Helicopters is ready for growth with new owners, behind the scenes at USATS, plus West Coast Helicopters, Civic Helicopters, used aircraft market outlook & more!
It all started with Kenny Keller, a passion for teaching, and a Flip video camera in 2012.
In seven years, Keller has provided the helicopter industry with hundreds of hours of helicopter training videos on his YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/HelicopterTraining1. He has also authored seven books that have been a huge help to the aviation community.
Keller recognized a lack of quality ground training within the industry, and created a video learning platform to compliment any part 61 or 141 flight school program.
Helicopter Online Ground School has since grown to provide four complete courses and has collected hundreds of testimonials from members across the globe. Courses offered include the Private Pilot Course, Commercial Pilot Course, Instrument Pilot Course, and the Certified Flight Instructor Course.
Today, Helicopter Online Ground School has a full-time staff to keep up with member needs, and all four courses are approved by FAA Safety for WINGS phase credits.
The instrument course features Daniel “Taz” Christman — 2018 Flight Instructor Of The Year.
Keller has become an FAA Safety Representative and provides regular free webinars. Each webinar is carefully planned to contribute to helicopter safety, with a goal to decrease accident statistics.
Helicopter Online Ground School has a strong momentum and will continue to grow and serve the industry in the future.
