We Don’t Just Train Pilots, We Create Aviators
Aviation is not just about flying, it's is about leadership, safety, and embracing a sense of adventure. Aviation is hours of study, maintaining your health at a high level, and joining a community of professionals that author the pages of history. It isn’t easy, and the price can be high, but if you want a rewarding career that you will never regret then it's well worth the journey. Be part of the next generation of aviation professionals and begin your career as a pilot with USATS.
How do you judge aviation training quality? Expensive aircraft and nice training facilities? Or, do you look at success, safety, and experience?

Our graduates fly in every sector of the aviation industry throughout the world, so no matter which of the hundreds of career paths you choose you'll find that at least one of our graduates has blazed a path for you.

Private Pilot (PPL) Courses
If recreational activities are what you are looking for, helicopters are versatile enough to get you just about anywhere you want to go. That versatility does come with some responsibilities! To safely operate a helicopter to and from off-airport locations requires additional skills, a strong commitment to understanding your aircraft performance and mainly to have been properly trained in Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM). This training MUST be taught from the start on your first lesson. Understanding threats and how to manage them before and during the flight are the key elements to make you a safe and competent pilot.
If becoming a professional helicopter pilot is your goal but your schedule demands you undergo your training in steps, let us help you acquire strong fundamentals that will guide you through the rest of your training.
If you already hold an airplane certificate, our FAA approved part 141 add-on courses will save you time and money.
