The thing that really strikes me about the people at Rotors is how focused they are on customer service, especially with their charter clients. If the requests are legal and safe they will do whatever they can to make them happen. They

If you??re looking for flight training, you already have an idea of what you??re looking for. You may be a pilot already, or maybe you??re looking to take your first step. Either way, you know that you want to be in the air. You have to pass FAA tests before they??ll give you a license, and those tests are the same no matter where you trained. So why spend time talking about that? YOU want to know about the flight school, not necessarily about what it takes to get your license...

Before I began flight training, I did my homework and Rotors Of The Rockies (ROTRs) was the clear choice. By the way, I REALLY recommend that you do your research before deciding on a flight school. You??ll discover that some organizations are not very reputable. Why put your life in the hands of a company you can??t trust?

The owners at ROTRs are great people and you can tell that they truly care about their staff and students. As for experience, the chief pilot/co-owner is not only a law enforcement veteran but he just recently retired from the Cost Guard after 21 years of service where he was an instructor for Blackhawk pilots. How cool is that!?!? He has flown in Iraq and Afghanistan, and was based out of the Army??s high-altitude training facility in Eagle, CO. That??s the chief pilot though. Impressive as his credentials are, he??s not the one training ALL the students.

So what about the people that DO train all the students? ROTRs has trained pilots for law enforcement agencies in Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and of course, Colorado. This information is available on the ROTRs website but I didn??t want to just take their word for it. I called each law enforcement agency listed in ROTRs?? brochure. I received callbacks from each of the aforementioned states. Every person I spoke to had nothing but great things to say about ROTRs and the owners. With testimonials like that, I KNEW ROTRs was the right choice. More recently, ROTRs has been training new FAA employees. To me, that shows that even the FAA must have a high opinion about ROTRs.

You want to talk about safety? Safety is always a big concern for people, and why not? You??d want to actually survive your flight training, wouldn??t you? You can talk the talk but if you don??t walk the walk, then you??re not going to be around for long. Needless to say, ROTRs has been around for over 10 years. In this industry, you don??t last long if you??re not safe. As the saying goes: ??There are old pilots and there are bold pilots but there are no old, bold pilots.? This extends to the safety of the aircraft of course. You could be the safest pilot in the world but if your aircraft isn??t properly maintained, you??re in trouble. ROTRs has an ??open book policy? inviting anyone to take a look at the aircraft log books to prove that each aircraft is well-maintained.

Other helicopter flight schools at the same airport have had great sales pitches, and maybe even nicer websites. In my opinion though, nobody can match the reputation and quality found at ROTRs. Nobody near has a fleet with the size that ROTRs has either. Why go anywhere else?
