Northern Helicopter partners with Lake Superior College
Northern Helicopters of Hibbing Minnesota has partnered with Lake Superior College in Duluth Minnesota and offers students the ability to acquire a two year Professional Pilot, A.A.S. Degree or complete a 35 credit fast track Aviation Program along with earning the FAA ratings required to become a professional helicopter pilot.
Brian Johnson-CEO, states "Having this Partnership with Lake Superior College allows people in that geographical region to enter the exciting world of professional aviation without the travel."
Northern Helicopters was founded by Brian Johnson, a retired airline captain with United Airlines, in 2003 in Northern Minnesota. Brian recognized a niche in the market for the lack of helicopter training in the North Central region of the United States. With the continued success of the flight school the company has now been able to diversify into wild land fire fighting, power/pipeline patrols, aerial seeding, photo flights, air taxi and search and rescue.
