Hillsboro Heli Academy Granted Examining Authority by FAA

Hillsboro Heli Academy proudly announces that it has been granted Examining Authority by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This designation further solidifies Hillsboro Heli Academy's commitment to excellence and its dedication to producing highly skilled helicopter pilots.

As an FAA-approved Part 141 flight school, Hillsboro Heli Academy has consistently upheld rigorous standards in training and safety. This new authority not only reaffirms these standards but also empowers the academy to directly evaluate and certify the proficiency of its students, streamlining the certification process.

“We are thrilled to have earned Examining Authority status from the FAA,” said Jared Friend, General Manager of Hillsboro Heli Academy. “This achievement reflects our unwavering dedication to providing top-tier flight training and our commitment to excellence in helicopter training.”
