Career Path and Job Placement
After your education is complete you will have logged approximately 200 hours as a student-pilot. The first job for beginning pilots is a flight instructor position. We hire our own quality pilots to work for us after earning their certified flight instructor rating. Most entry level positions at tour companies require 1,000 hours. Four of our six instructors work as commercial pilots at Sundance Helicopters flying the Grand Canyon Tours. Every one of our instructors will have the opportunity to advance to flying tours after working for us.
Location Location Location
Luckily we are located in sunny Las Vegas, NV. North Las Vegas airport and Southern Nevada offer a great flight environment for training. Las Vegas is the perfect place for pilot training. North Las Vegas Airport (VGT) has an operating control tower which builds great communication experience for the beginning pilot. There are instrument approaches at VGT to provide practice while working on your instrument rating. A short 10-minute flight out to the practice area gives us the freedom to train off-airport in the desert. This area gives you great high altitude experience in a mountainous region. We have over 300 days of sunshine a year here in the Las Vegas valley, so your training is not delayed for weather as often as other parts of the world.
