Core Helicopters

Linden, New Jersey

Core Helicopters is located only 14 miles away from New York City. We are the the closest and largest helicopter flight school in the NYC / Northern New Jersey area.

With a private taxiway and the only uncontrolled airfield within the class B proximity to NYC, you´ll get the best of both worlds. We currently have a fleet of 3x Robinson R22 Beta II´s and 2x Robinson R44 Raven II helicopters available. Our helicopters are 100% owned by us and have been extensively modified with state-of-the-art upgrades to provide the most advanced training helicopter fleet in the area.

We offer customized and individually tailored one-on-one flight instruction under part 91. We believe this is the fastest and most efficient way to earn your pilot’s license. We provide Private, Commercial, and Certified Flight Instructor License training as well as Instrument Ratings.

We also provide aerial photography, sightseeing, and charter services.

Access to the airfield and school is easy with public transportation directly from NYC via NJ transit trains. The trip is less than 20 minutes, and the train station is less than 3 minutes away from the school.

If I could score them a zero, I would! They were eager to make the sale and were easy to contact during the transaction. After I paid for private lessons, they completely disappeared. I tried to schedule an appointment and have called, and sent emails to no avail. No one answers the phone, returns messages of any kind, and when I physically go to the Linden, NJ location, they´re always closed. This is a scam! Avoid this company at all cost.
