“Some of the best training I’ve received is at Platinum Helicopters. I did my rotorcraft
– James C.
“Great place to learn to fly. The instructors are very thorough and safe. The location is great too, you can see NYC and Philly on a clear day. There’s a lot to pay attention to when learning to fly a Helicopter. They do a great job of breaking things down so they’re easy to understand. Also training at an airfield that’s in unrestricted air space means less distractions on the radio and a better learning environment.”
” Thank you so much for making the Golf Ball Drop such a great success for Angel Flight East. It was wonderful to meet Evan and Jim – and their aim to getting the golf balls to the target was impressive! I hope you had as much fun being there- the Helicopter made the night!

“We had a great experience with Platinum Helicopters. Jeff was our pilot. I assisted in a golf ball drop at a local golf course for a fundraiser. Closest to the hold wins. Jeff comfortably flew us in, guided us to above the hole, had patience while we threw 250 golf balls out the side of the helicopter. He got us home via the scenic route. I guess they all are from up there! Thanks, Jeff! Highly recommend Platinum!”
“I really wanted to thank you guys for the amazing experience with my instructional demo flight! I had an amazing time and everyone I spoke to was truly a class act. I hope to be able to go further in the future, as right now it is not possible financially for me, but I will happily recommend your company to anyone interested in learning to fly, or even for a scenic tour. I really had an amazing experience and can’t find the words to properly thank you for your kindness and cooperation. Thank you again.
From start to finish, our experience with Platinum yesterday was top drawer, a home run, first rate, just perfect – THANK YOU!
Alison was great: prepared, professional and on top of her game in every regard. From our greeting through pre-flight, and during the flight itself and right up until we closed things out, she was a fine example of what a great instructor can be. If only we’d had an iPad in my day!
The Platinum facilities look great from the classroom to the front room, and having your own fuel, plus a tow cart – awesome. Oh, and N111VG was a joy to fly! So glad that the schedule and the weather worked out, and with sincere thanks,
“The flight was awesome and my son and I were so impressed with our pilot Jeff , and his professionalism, knowledge and his smooth flying. What a great asset to your company. I will definitely highly recommend Platinum Helicopters.
“I wanted to thank you for a great demo flight experience my son had last Tuesday. Yogev was our instructor and did a fantastic job. We first sat with him and he ask questions on why we were there and after explaining that my 17 year old son was interested in piloting a helicopter as a career, he tailor everything towards that mindset. We then went out to the hanger and again explained the workings of the R22, gauges, lights, levers etc. I didn’t realize how complicated it is to fly!!! After the safety discussion, my son was eager to go up. Yogev was very accommodating in putting a door on my son’s side and removing his. And off they went……upon return, and after the blades stopped turning, I hugged my son and ask how cool was that? Response – ‘Dad that was super cool!!!, it was sick!!! (teenager lingo). Yogev said he did great and took a few pics of us in front of the R22. My son is now totally hooked on becoming a helicopter pilot. Again, I wanted to thank you so much for this experience, it confirmed my belief and my son’s that this is the path he should take as a career. Yogev was great and very professional in his presentation and answering all questions. You run a class operation!”
“(Discovery Flight on 8/25/18)
I’ve been obsessed with helicopters since I was young, but never had the opportunity to fly one until I received a discovery flight as a gift. The overall experience was incredible. Their office is attached directly to their hangar, so you walk through the door and you’re standing right next to their Robinson helicopters. The instructor, Jeff, was professional, but also very easy going. He had no problem answering every question I had (I had a lot); you could tell he actually cared and was passionate about flying. It was a beautiful day out, and he gave me the option of flying with the doors on or off of the R22 (we did off). After taking off, I got to take control of doing some maneuvers, and even had the opportunity to try and hover (which was harder than he made it look). I talked to Jeff about my dream of flying, and he gave me a lot of great advice about getting a license and all of the opportunities there are.
The only issue I had was finding out where to go! You have to drive along the backside, and go down a small dirt road to go to the office. For someone who had never been to a small airport like that, it was a little intimidating driving next to the hangars because I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to be driving there or not. All I had to do was call, and the directions were easily explained.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone with (or even without) a dream of flying to call and set up a discovery flight. You won’t be disappointed.”
I wanted to tell you the Helicopter Ball Drop at the Brookdale College outing at Eagle Oaks on was such a huge hit! Everyone lined up on the balcony and was so excited to first hear….then see the helicopter fly overhead then hover and drop the balls. It really was such fun!! Everyone is still talking about it. It helped us raise $XXXX ($XXXX was paid out to the winner). It really made our 40th Education Open very special. Sorry you couldn’t have stopped in for dinner with us!
Our volunteer Jennifer had a ball – and told us how nice you all were. Thank you!!
I hope we can do this again in the future. Even with the rain, you were very reassuring we could do it – it really put me at ease and I had confidence in you. From our experience, you run a very professional and reliable business and I can’t say enough about you all.
Until next time!
“The entire experience was a combination of a movie and a fantasy, thanks to the entire team! The pilot was fantastic, such a professional – made us feel at ease for our first ever helicopter ride, answered every question we had along the way and made it a super fun experience.
I’m a writer and I’m not sure exactly how to express how much I appreciated every second of the planning process of this adventure for my wife’s 40th birthday!
It was LITERALLY everything I wanted it to be and truly even more!
I’m not sure when, but there’s no question I’ll be reaching out for their services again sometime.”
