YOU CAN'T BEAT IT!
I want to give a big THANKS to all of the staff at United Helicopter for their help in making my Hiller purchase and training a great experience! I have been a flight instructor for 35 years and have built two experimental aircraft so I feel I am in a unique position of being able to critically evaluate your restoration and flight training programs. I am a neurosurgeon by profession and have a very critical eye when it comes to mechanical workmanship. I was very impressed by your restoration shop. The workmanship rivalled any that I have seen in my 41 years in aviation. Clearly your staff shares a passion for the restoration of this wonderful aircraft and it shows in the output of the shop! The flight training I received was absolutely first rate and I returned home feeling that I could safely pilot the Hiller and build upon that experience on my own. I will definitely be returning back to United Helicopter for my mechanical and flight training needs in the future! Please pass my thanks along to Jeff, Mike, Joanna and the whole staff!
