What others are saying
“I do not have any experience with the MD school but I have attended the Bell and Eurocopter school. With this being said, the best training I’ve ever received is when I attended the MD 500 EP course at Western Helicopters. I highly recommend them, especially if you’re a Lima-Lima pilot (low-level). Plus Pete Gillies and Bob Spencer are the PhDs of the helicopter industry and will take you far beyond the edge of the envelope. Give them a call.”
“Go to Western, you will not regret it! Some of the best training available anywhere. They can take you to mountains at 10,000+ feet, deserts, hot, cold you name it. It is all close by. They do all the 500 training for the federal LEOs (all branches).”
“I've done my recurrent training in Western Helicopter's MD 500 for 4 years now. You won't find two more experienced MD 500 instructors than Bob Spencer and Pete Gillies. My underwriter actually recommended Western over the MD school.”
