Helicopter Flight Schools for Aspiring Student Pilots From Akron, OH

Upper Limit Aviation has been training commercial student pilots since 2003. We are considered one of the top helicopter flight schools in the United States.  Are you from Akron, OH and are you looking for the best helicopter flight school in the nation? If so, we recommend that you consider relocating to one of three ULA flight school locations. ULA is partnered with Southern Utah University (SUU) located in Cedar City, Utah.  We are eager to serve students coming out of Akron, OH.  To find out more about our three distinct locations please call 855-435-4338 and speak with our Student Services Team.

Veterans, call us to find out if you are eligible to use your 9/11 Gi Bill® education benefits to fund flight school through SUU. Private paying pilots - please note: ULA is an affordable helicopter flight school preparing students for a powerful career in aviation. Call for a “flight school comparison”, and compare our rates with other leading helicopter flight schools. Ask us about our “cost calculator”!

As one of the top flight schools in the US, ULA’s commercial student pilots collectively fly over 30,000 flight hours each year. We are a serious helicopter flight school serving students from all over the country. If you are currently living in Akron, OH and you are seeking the best helicopter flight school, look no more. Call 855-435-4338 and speak with our Student Service Team and find out why so many student pilots choose ULA.  However, we are only looking for serious students who are prepared to move to attend flight school at one of our three locations.

Upper Limit Aviation has three distinct locations for students to choose from, each with their own unique advantages. We have helicopter flight schools located in Salt Lake City, UT, Cedar City, UT, and Memphis, TN. Regardless of where you are from, to attend a top flight school you are mostly likely going to relocate. Top helicopter schools are not in every State, and they are far and few between. For those serious student pilots from Akron, OH we hope you take a good look at ULA before making your final decision.

Upper Limit Aviation (ULA) presents helicopter flight schools to prospective pilots from Akron, OH. PLEASE NOTE: we are only looking for serious student pilots from Akron, OH. We are looking for those who are willing to relocate and begin their pathway toward an aviation career. To become a commercial helicopter pilot is not easy, and only those who are truly committed make it. It takes a great deal of time, energy, and effort to become a commercial helicopter pilot.  Attending flight schools is comparable to attending medical schools.  There are only a few really good medical schools in the country and most likely they are not in your home town or state.  People who are serious about becoming a doctor will move to the location of the best school available.  Like medical schools, flight schools are also expensive.

The best ULA students are committed, willing to sacrifice, and against all odds they stick it out… they get through some very difficult hurdles because they are passionate about their dream to fly. If you are not willing to relocate then you are not serious about becoming a commercial pilot. How do we know? Because there are only a handful of quality helicopter flight schools in the US. Most people who complete commercial flight training have to relocate in order to attend the best flight school.

Is the tremendous commitment and sacrifice worth it? Absolutely, just speak to some of our graduates who have gone on to enjoy a great (lucrative) career.

Vietnam Era Military Pilot Training: The first Air Force SUPT-H students began attending Army sponsored helicopter pilot training at Fort Rucker in 1971. In April 1971, the 1550th ATTW was activated at Hill AFB, Utah. After initial training by the Army, the pilots were upgraded for Air Force missions in the UH-1, CH-3, or H-53.

Helicopter Careers - Military: The other factor to consider is the time commitment required to obtain your helicopter pilot license in the military. The military absolutely expects that you are a military officer first and a pilot second. This exchange requires a lot of give and take and should be considered prior to making a concrete decision. If you feel strongly about the military and are willing to sacrifice a block of your time
