Our customers say:

Whoever has been in a helicopter once, always wants more.

At least this has been my experience. The challenge is to stay absolutely concentrated and be prepared for emergencies. The team at RotorSky gave me a feeling of safety and that lead me to fulfill my dream to become a helicopter pilot. My next goal is the commercial pilot license.
