Skyline Columbus brings helicopter training to Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus's only flight school has expanded with helicopter training.  Skyline Columbus now offers the only helicopter-equipped training courses within 100 miles.

The new course has been open for about 30 days and the owner of Skyline Columbus Todd Shellnutt says it's been a huge success.

A student has to have 40 hours of training and can then apply for their pilot's license.

Shellnutt says the addition of the helicopter training center is great for the Fountain City because aviation students can have full access to several aircrafts without having to leave the city. 

Skyline Columbus offers flight training services including Private Pilot Training, Instrument Training, Commercial Pilot Training, and Certified Flight Instructor Training.
