Why Train at Boston Helicopters?
Our weather has it all. The summers are warm, the winters are cold, and you get to experience rain, thunderstorms (and avoiding them), snow, and wind. Boston is generally windier than the "windy city" with average wind speeds of over 12 knots. At Boston Helicopters, you also get to experience the maritime climate of the New Hampshire and Massachusetts coastlines and beautiful beaches. You're guaranteed to learn in the most diverse weather conditions which can be said to represent, at any given time, conditions you will be dealing with when you start your career in aviation.
The New England terrain is also as diverse as the weather. We are located minutes from the Class Bravo airspace, which surrounds Boston, Massachusetts. The surrounding metro airspace is alive with Med Flight, News, and police helicopters. As a career helicopter pilot, training in and around a Class B airport is extremely valuable.
