You’ll graduate with about 200 hours in a helicopter. While experience may be the best teacher, it cannot prepare you for everything you’ll need to know for your career!

The majority of books in our library are a result of suggestions from our instructors. Others were recommendations from industry professionals. They weren’t chosen to merely to give you busy work. These are the tools that will help prepare you for your career.
Mountain Ridge Helicopters has a substantial magazine collection built from years of saving various personal subscriptions.
