To Current & Future UHI Students
Universal Helicopters and its President Gordon Jiroux have helped set the standards in the helicopter flight training industry by providing Good People, Great Employees and Quality Pilots that follow all required Policies, Practices and Procedures to the Helicopter Industry. UHI has always kept its graduates in high demand by keeping its Training Standards and Hiring Requirements at the highest level and by keeping up to date with the changes within the helicopter industry.
Being successful in aviation requires maintaining an accident free career, without any violations to include alcohol and narcotics.
Why a 2 or 4 year college degree should be in your training plans
Two significant changes that have affected all new and future helicopter pilots are the lack of Alternative Student Loans and the changes in the Veterans Administrations Post 9/11 G.I. Bill® that became available to qualified veterans in 2009.
For this reason a majority of future resumes presented to the helicopter industry HR personnel will include at least a 2 year degree.
UHI is hopeful that publishing these hiring requirements will help insure that future UHI graduates will enjoy the same level of success that Universal Helicopter current and past graduates have. Below are mandatory requirements.
