DOVER — The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce was pleased to welcome Seacoast Helicopters with a traditional ribbon cutting.
Seacoast Helicopters recently opened for business on the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease offering services to student pilots, tourists and businesses.
The Seacoast area provides a beautiful, scenic backdrop for flying as well as an abundance of tourist attractions, fine dining, night life and entertainment. Seacoast Helicopters offers new, well-maintained Robinson R22 Beta II and R44 Raven II helicopters for primary and advanced flight instruction, individual rental, aerial photography, charter services and scenic tours. The hangar and office is located at an on-airport location with easy road access, its own parking lot and secure facility entrance.
Their Flight Training Academy offers courses leading to Private, Commercial, Airline Transport Pilot, Instrument and Instructor ratings. Many of the professional helicopter pilots that are flying today received their training from the US Army during the Vietnam conflict. These pilots are all approaching mandatory retirement age and will create a shortage of qualified helicopter pilots in the next several years. This creates an opportunity for young men and women to start a rewarding career in an exciting field where the sky is your office!
