Chuck Aaron

A Living Legend of Aviation, helicopter pilot Chuck Aaron and his advanced flight academy are now part of Southern Utah University offering the only collegiate helicopter upset recovery and advanced instrument flight training in the world.

This advanced training is designed for industry professionals to learn the critical decision making and flight skills necessary to handle less than ideal weather and visibility conditions.

Industry professionals will complete the new program in Aaron's BO-105 helicopter, referred to as "The Animal". To qualify for training, helicopter pilots need the endorsement of their current industry employer and/or go through an interview process.

Chuck Aaron is the only pilot in the world licensed by the FAA to teach and perform helicopter aerobatics and the only one of two teaching upset recovery training in a helicopter. Among many accomplishments, Aaron was the first Red Bull helicopter Aerobatic pilot starting in 2005 and a recognized experimental test pilot by the prestigious Society of Experimental Test Pilots in 2011.

SUU’s Aviation Program has more than 400 students from around the world with 47 states represented. The university's fleet includes 16 airplanes, 23 helicopters by the end of 2020, and state of the art maintenance training facilities.
