    Helicopter Private Pilot
    CFI: Michael Everhart

    Well a huge congratulations to Kim Baldwin, another graduate here at Elite Helicopter Tours. Kim is one of our first female students to graduate to a full private pilot’s certificate. Kim learned about how important it is to get the right amount of attention and training by transferring to Elite. You see, she didn’t start her training at Elite Helicopter Tours but rather she started at another flight school nearly 35 miles away. Due to instructor incompatibility and other related problems she decided to find a new school and Chief CFI Michael Everhart at Elite Helicopter Tours was there to welcome her and make sure she became a proficient pilot before taking her check-ride. Its always amazing to see woman join the ranks of the Elite few to become a pilot, especially a helicopter pilot. While training to become a pilot, Kim had to balance the rest of her life which includes a full time job and raising her 16 month old son named Anders. We are very proud of her dedication and enthusiasm for flying. Kim is not planning on just stopping at a private rotor pilots rating but plans on immediately working on her IFR rating and continuing through commercial and CFII. Way to go Kim, congratulations once again.
