IN HOUSE FINANCING ON ALL COURSES
Friday, August 28, 2015
Palm Beach Helicopters will begin an in house financing program for all training courses. Rates and terms will vary based on the individual and the courses taken however for the career courses the rates and terms will be very similar to those found in federal student loans. Financing of up to 70% of the total course cost can be extended to qualified students who are U.S. Citizens. Current President, Dan Crowe, stated "There is no shortage of people who want to enter this exciting career but finding a source of funding for a vocational school is much more difficult than college. A flight school extending credit and investing in its students in this way is a rare but badly needed solution to trianing the next generation of helicopter pilots."

FAA 141 EXAMINING AUTHORITY
Tuesday, April 09, 2013
Today Palm Beach Helicopters joined an elite group of helictoper flight schools after becoming only the third helictoper flight school in the nation to receive FAA 141 Examining Authority. The FAA issues examining authority to those schools who have demonstrated a higher quality and rate of success than the minimum standards for a flight school. A student who graduates from a course with examining authority receives their rating without a further practical test. Current President Dan Crowe stated, "This a culmination of the vision and commitment to quality of training intruduced by the company's original founder, Master CFI Randy Rowles, coupled with the hard work and dedication of all past and present employees and students. It provides a clear choice for those students who seek the highest quality of flight training and challenges the flight training industry to go beyond minimum standards. It challenges our present and future employees to maintain that commitment to maximum standards."
