ULA is engaged with Aviation-Helicopter Employers

As mentioned above, Upper Limit Aviation (ULA) is engaged with aviation employers. We know what employers are considering when interviewing their pilot candidates; they are looking for something more than most schools can offer. Employers are looking for experienced pilots (PIC hours) and specialty training. This is where ULA’s Proprietary Courses come in. At ULA you will have the unique opportunity to take advanced courses in: Mountain Flying, External Load Training, Turbine Transition Course and even a Medium Transition Course in a Bell 205.

While providing outstanding advanced helicopter flight training courses ULA's instructors are also equipped to teach advanced techniques. Essentially, our advanced courses are designed provide the skill sets required for students to succeed in a highly competitive helicopter aviation market. Our advanced students are trained by instructors with real life experience in the industry - they know what employers are looking for.

By providing a safe yet real-world learning environment at ULA, our students gain the understanding that their success is our success. Meaning, we are not considered successful unless our students earn the best piloting job and advance their careers.
