As the saying goes, “Do what you love and you will never
work another day in your life.” This is the philosophy surrounding Vertical Limit Aviation. If you find yourself with a passion for rotorcraft flight, why not train to be the best pilot you can be?
VLA was founded with the knowledge that the environment
in which you train matters. At an elevation of 5837 feet,
Double Eagle Airport provides challenges to aviators of all
experience levels. Like a runner or a fighter, the helicopter
operates differently up here. From the moment you pick up
until you set it back down, the pilot "feels" the reduced
performance of the aircraft and you learn to do all maneuvers
near the limits of wind, power, density altitude, and
mountain capabilities. This ultimately produces pilots that
are better at power management, control smoothness, and
understanding aircraft limitations than those trained at sea
level. Even the military recognizes that teaching students in
these unique conditions produces a more skillful and
confident pilot. If the military trains their pilots here,
shouldn´t you benefit from this environment as well?
Studying with us you will be able to reach the "Vertical Limit"
of what you can be. By combining our one-on-one approach
to flight training and the high density altitude environment,
every student at VLA has the stage set for success.
Employment is never a guarantee but, unlike many other
flight schools, 100% of our CFI graduates have gained
employment at Vertical Limit Aviation and become
contributing members of the helicopter industry.
