Here are a few testimonials from past customers of Hields Aviation:

 

“When I first decided to take the plunge and follow my childhood dream of becoming a helicopter pilot, Hields Aviation were the first people I called. The owner Rob Hields called me in for a chat at the airfield and immediately made me feel incredibly welcome and was very supportive of my goals. I started training for my private pilot’s license with Hields towards the end of 2016 and passed my test in March of 2017 with just over 50 hours of training. It was such an incredible feeling to finally hold the license in my hands and realise I had actually done it! Learning to fly is certainly an intense and challenging experience by my instructor Ollie was very experienced and pushed me to be the best I could be in a very relaxed and focused way. Training at Hields Aviation is an excellent experience, you really do get the most experience for your money being at an uncontrolled airport, you are in charge and learning from the second the skids leave the ground, rather than having to fly away to designated training areas as seemed to be the case with other schools. Rob, Ollie and his team really made me feel like they cared about making me the best pilot I could be and even today continue to support and push me to keep progressing towards my ultimate goal of a career at the controls of a helicopter”

“I started flying with Hields Aviation in October 2016, where I completed my Type rating on the Robinson R44. I then began to build my hours with intention to obtain a CPL (H) I did all my flying with Hields and found the whole experience to be entirely enjoyable. I passed my CPL skills test on the R44 in summer 2017, the instruction and guidance I received from Oli was second to none. The team at Hields helped every step of the way. I am now working towards my Flight Instructor qualification on the R22 to help build up more hours and more experience in the helicopter industry.”

“Just had an amazing afternoon with Hields Aviation at Sherburn.It was a gift for my 70th birthday and I went with my sister and brother-in-law. Expected a quick ten minute flight but was given the full works – Tour of the hanger, full explanation on the workings of a helicopter followed by a training flight. Our pilot was Oliver who carefully and patiently explained all the controls and helped me take the controls for a while when we were up. They did everything to make the afternoon as special as possible. They couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend. Check out their website for a variety of experiences.”
