Jerry Trimble Helicopters (JTH) is partnering with Jessica Ward, owner of High Tide Helicopters, to open its fourth flight training base in Oak Island, NC. Jessica completed all of her training with Jerry Trimble Helicopters and decided to open her own flight school at the Cape Fear Regional Jetport in Oak Island, NC near Wilmington. Known as “The Little Airport with the Big Heart”, the airport, located between Wilmington and Myrtle Beach, is conveniently situated a half mile from the beach near championship golf courses and fantastic fishing. This is the ideal location for flight training due to the mild climate, scenic vistas, and non-towered field. Jerry Trimble, owner, stated “We felt it would be a good opportunity to provide a training location for customers on the East Coast. Jessica will be a great addition and we are looking forward to sending customers her way.” All private and commercial training at the North Carolina base is conducted in the R-22 Beta II with a dual rate of $275/hour and a solo rate of $235/hour. CFI training, done by Jerry Trimble, is also offered with prior arrangement. To contact Jessica directly call 910-477-1926, email Jessica@hightidehelicopters.com, or for more information visit www.hightidehelicopters.com.
The JTH main office, established in 2007, is located in McMinnville, Oregon (MMV) directly across the street from the Evergreen Aviation Museum. JTH prides itself on offering high-quality, accelerated primary and advanced flight training in the Robinson R-22 and R-44. The prices at the McMinnville location are $230/hour dual and $200/hour solo for the R-22 HP. Instrument instruction is offered in the R-22 Beta II. Jerry specializes in CFI instruction and also offers a touchdown auto course.
Jerry Trimble Helicopters is also looking forward to the fourth annual touchdown autorotation competition being held on June 22, 2014. There will be some new events added this year. Standby for more information!
