"I have just finished the Rotary Wing Mountain Flying Course with Superior Performance Aviation and I am extremely happy with the results. This course gives you the classroom instructional foundation for mountain flying and then you get to put that information to practical use during the flight portion.
Tim Pfahler, the instructor, is a very professional and experienced instructor pilot. He is extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter, to include exceptional teaching techniques and skills during the flight classes. This class is a must for helicopter pilots in the Northwest. It will fine tune your flying skills, and greatly enhance your situational awareness in all phases of flight, not just mountain flying. I have been a helicopter pilot for 24 years. The last 19 of those years have been flying heavy helicopters in the industry, firefighting, logging, construction, etc. all over the world, in several different mountain ranges. I wish I would have had this class much earlier in my career. I highly recommend Superior Performance Aviation to all pilots, especially those just getting started in the industry. It will give you the necessary skills advantage amongst your peers when applying for jobs, and gives you a solid skill foundation to build your career upon. In my opinion, you will not find any better company than Superior Performance Aviation to help improve you into becoming an overall better pilot."
