Ready to help Those Affected by Helicopter School Closing

It has come to our attention, on 01/31/17, that many veterans pursuing a career in aviation, as of 01/30/17, are no longer able to attend training at a particular part-141 flight school in the Twin Cities area. It is often difficult for GI Bill recipients to find schools approved to help them utilize their VA benefits. Hummingbird Aviation, LLC is a prominent part-141 helicopter and airplane training center in Eden Prairie, MN. Being a VA approved flight school in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Hummingbird Aviation is ready to help those left without an institution to continue their education. The progression of a pilots training is essential towards fully utilizing a persons GI Bill. A lapse in training can be detrimental and lead to repeated lessons. Such a situation cuts into the total funding provided for one’s education. We here at Hummingbird Aviation wish to help those affected by maintaining the progression of their training. It’s our mission to aid flight students in their pursuit of a career in aviation.

It's the Perfect Time to Become a Pilot     

     One of the most sought after job positions throughout the world right now is commercial pilots. America is the leading destination for those wishing to pursue a carrier in aviation. We are lucky in that, compared to the rest of the world, we are the cheapest option for training. Passenger and cargo airlines around the world are expected to buy 41,000 new airliners between 2017 and 2036, and will need 637,000 new pilots to fly them (A forecast from Boeing). This means that over the next two decades, 87 new pilots will need to be trained and ready to fly a commercial airliner every day in order to meet the worlds increasing demand to travel by air. Those that take this historic opportunity to enter into aviation are destined to have long financially rewarding carriers. Will you be one of them?
