One thing you‘ll find throughout our team at Northeast is a friendly-family atmosphere. We all really and truly enjoy what we do, and that just lends itself to a great working atmosphere where we know you will feel right at home. Here is our current team:
John, from Palmer, MA, is a former NEH student, and has over 30 years in the helicopter industry. Experienced in tour operations and external load, including construction and long line logging operations, he is a wealth of knowledge for the student pilot seeking information about the helicopter industry. John is also an FAA Certified Airframe and Power Plant mechanic with Inspection Authorization privileges, and is actively involved in day to day operations.
There‘s absolutely no better model of hands-on ownership!
Rhonda, from Minneapolis, MN became involved in helicopters when she met John during a tour season in the Midwest (Wisconsin Dells). Yes, on a helicopter ride, and yes, he was the pilot. She does not fly, but focuses on taking care of her students to make sure their needs are met, and that the school is run properly. Rhonda and John have a 30 year old son.
