Flight Training in Maryland

Recommended Posts

Looking at getting the PPL for helicopters. There are three schools in my area. I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on them. They are


Horizon in Newark, De


Advanced Helicopter in Frederick Md


Helicopter Academy in Stevensville, Md



I have heard all good about Advanced Helicopter. I couldnt find any feedback on Helicopter Academy or Horizon. I did see that Horizon trains on a Enstrom 280 FX-Turbo vs most places training on the R22. Are there any pros or cons to that?


Also, I live really close to Martin State Airport. I think Helicopter High used to train out of there, but heard they are out of business. Would there happen to be anyother flight schools at Martin's?


Thanks for any information

Helicopter Academy is seasonal training at best. Maybe May thru October in Maryland.

Advanced Helicopters is a very good place to train. They have Mike Zangara giving checkrides there, one of the best 22 pilots in the country.

Martins has no flight schools at this time. Heli-Photo operates out of there, an aerial photography company, that could help you after you get your commercial ticket.

Hope this helps.
