JR Aviation

J.R. Aviation is the leading helicopter operator and flight academy in the Midwest, and has been proudly serving the Greater Louisville area since 1992. We offer training for all FAA Certificates and Ratings, from Private through CFII and ATP. We offer flexible scheduling as well as some of the best training in the country in both ground and flight training. Our training is even more enhanced by one-on-one ground and flight training. This gives our students the full attention of the Certified Flight Instructors (CFI’s), and the ability to move at their own pace and learning style. Our CFI’s are highly experienced not only as instructors but in Commercial Operations as well.  We strive to teach our students a greater technical understanding of what is going on in the helicopter. This teaches the student to anticipate, rather than react to aerodynamic issues with the aircraft. We stress the importance of energy and power management, rules and regulations and what is the right and smart thing to do. JR Aviation Fleet
