Upper Limit Aviation (ULA) is first and foremost a helicopter training facility, training pilots to perform commercial operations services. At ULA our commercial ops pilot training takes place in the same aircraft used for ULA’s commercial charters and tours. Our goal is to train pilots to perform commercial operations. Thus, ULA students are uniquely able to gain an understanding of the skills required for helicopter pilots within the commercial industry.
Due to ULA's "in-house helicopter maintenance" program (Robinson Service Center), and the utility work conducted by our FAR 135 pilots and instructors, we are able to create an effective inner-connection between pilot training and aviation industry in general.
ULA's pilots are trained in the same aircraft used to fulfill our commercial training operations. Therefore, our students receive authentic training experience.
Upper Limit Aviation is an authorized Robinson Helicopter Service Center. ULA offers a full maintenance and complete overhaul services for the R22 and R44 Robinson Helicopters.
Other Commercial Operations Services
Upper Limit Aviation offers commercial helicopter tours and charters to the general public. Commercial tours allow passengers incredible access (photo opportunities) to the scenery and natural terrain of Utah. Helicopter charter flights are a versatile means of travel; helicopters allow you to land and take off from remote areas, or city-center helipads.
ULA is equipped with the resources to perform aerial surveys for a broad scope of industries in North America. A unique aspect of a helicopter, is its ability to pick up and place loads (External Load) using a long line (Precision Long Line), into remote areas. Whether you need general delivery, air conditioning lifts, or construction support, ULA provides commercial operations. Essentially, we are able to move anything that requires an item to be positioned from the air, within reason (limit based on aircraft and item).
