"I come from a family of aviators and grew up around helicopters since I was a kid.  I was recommended to Greg by my grandpa who flew helicopters and a friend who trained with Tech Helicopters a few years earlier.

Training with Greg was an awesome experience...Greg’s experience in the industry from his seasonal flying outside of training really helped to get me ready for my first job without any surprises.  I would recommend Tech Helicopters to anyone who is planning on flying helicopters.  You won’t be disappointed."
