Central Helicopter Training Academy

St Thomas, Ontario Canada

Our base of operation is the St. Thomas Municipal Airport strategically chosen because of its proximity to larger markets such as London, Kitchener, and Hamilton, and because of its student pilot friendly airport environment.

Our current fleet consists of two Robinson R-44, one Robinson R22, and one Bell 206B Jet Ranger type helicopters. Although not used for primary flight training we can also provide type endorsements on the Eurocopter AS 350 A-Star and AS 355 Twin-Star.

All of our aircraft are maintained in-house by Zimmer Air Services Aircraft Maintenance Organization, Approval # 157-92.

Have taken about 4-5 Helicopter Flights at the annual October " Brigden Fall Fair, " whenever possible over the last 8 - 10 years, and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. Kevin Wojowictz is the BEST - when I asked for something different, he always went along with/or suggested a new adventure ......such as G-Force, Crop Swoop, Searching for those "crops" of minor interest now, HE is totally awesome! Would I continue with this Flight of Fantasy - YES , well, at least for the next 10 - 15 years. THANK YOU Kevin W.
