Because great training makes great pilots
Ever heard the phrase, "The sky's the limit'? Well, it's true, unless you're a pilot!
Horizon instructors have trained helicopter pilots from all occupations and all ages. We have successfully taught students from 15 to 78 years old and even the completed the licensing of the first deaf helicopter pilot in the country! Our instructors have extensive training, proven in-flight coaching techniques and an outstanding record of safety and are willing to share their skills to help you complete your Private, Commercial, Rotary Wing
Add-on, ATP Rating or CFI license. Many of our students have gone on to fly for our country in the military over Iraq and Afghanistan, for police departments and government agencies as well as for large companies in the private sector.
We have been in business since 1982 and are conveniently located close to Philadelphia,
New York and Washington. The Engstrom is equipped for IFR training and Horizon offers additional options too as we have a low cost simulator available for VFR and IFR training as well as our own on-site maintenance staff.
By learning from the best and acquiring the same skills our pilots have been perfecting for almost 30 years, you'll be able to take confident command of your aircraft. Your knowledge and solid foundation will enable you to make better decisions and reach your goals; whether simply to take friends and business associates up for an unforgettable experience or to pursue your ambition to be a professional pilot.
This vocation, unlike many others, demands that we challenge ourselves to discover the patience, determination, focus and self-discipline, which generates success. All of us at Horizon take great pride in helping you meet this challenge and reach your goal.
