Even with limited travel options, the Bell Training Academy remains open and training customers. Barring any travel restrictions by the U.S. State Department on entry into the country, our pilots and instructors continue to offer hands-on flight and maintenance courses that enrich our customers knowledge of flight. To adapt to the current environment, our dedicated team has taken numerous proactive measures to ensure our training areas and devices are fully sterilized daily while also practicing safe distancing. 

Earlier this month, Bell Training Academy’s Pilot Instructor Alex Romo hosted Mike McCraw, CAPT, USCG (ret), Manatee County Mosquito Control in Palmetto, Florida. “I just completed the Bell 407 pilot course for Manatee County Mosquito Control District located in Florida. My instructor was Alex Romo. I can’t say enough for the quality teaching that I received." Mike and Alex worked together to build the Captain's confidence in autorotations. "Specifically, Alex taught to my industry’s flight profile in the helicopter. Knowledge of the FADEC system is something that was foreign to me until completing this course."

For the Bell Training Academy and Bell employees who made this possible, Mike had this special message. "Thank you for remaining open for business during our Nation’s stressful time dealing with COVID-19. My line of work combating the mosquito population with a Bell 407 was crucial to the county. Hats off to Alex my instructor and the entire crew at the Bell Training Academy for providing a superior learning facility and crew.” 

Bell is always ready and proud to provide training for operators around the world. Through virtual lessons or in-person training, our instructors are willing to adapt to meet our customers needs and develop the world's best rotorcraft pilots and maintainers.
