"There is no substitute for experience"
-Federal Aviation Administration
Being a pilot is something only a great minority of the worlds population will get to experience. Here are Rio Grande Helicopters, being a pilot is not just a job, it is a passion, a lifestyle. Because of that, we only hire pilots who have a deep commitment to continued training and improvement on their personal skills and abilities. Our pilots come with the highest ratings in the industry and the majority of them are dual rated, meaning they can fly both Airplanes and Helicopters. Being a pilot is one thing, being a safe, professional, experienced aviator is another. We believe that although you may be a teacher, you are always still learning. You can rest assured that all of our pilots meet the highest of industry standards and then some. They all love what they do and ultimately want to keep doing it for a long time, therefore safety is our focus.
The team of pilots at Rio Grande Helicopters represents almost 50 years and tens of thousands of hours in aviation , all backed with an impressive background and variety of experience. Take a few minutes to get to know our diverse pilot staff here at Rio Grande Helicopters.
