Blue Ridge Helicopters has been incorporated since 1987 and is owned by Ron Carroll.  Ron has been flying, instructing pilots and servicing helicopters for 25 years and currently has over 11,000 hours of flight time.  

One of Ron’s recent students is our former Governor Sonny Perdue…..as you can imagine Mr. Perdue could choose anybody in the country to teach him to fly; because of Ron Carroll’s experience and reputation Mr. Perdue chose Ron to teach him.  Below is what Mr. Perdue had to say about Blue Ridge Helicopter’s owner:

 

“In any type of flight training, choosing the right instructor is critical for successful completion.  Ron Carroll at Blue Ridge Helicopters has an excellent reputation not only in the metro area but throughout the Helicopter world”
