  • Funding Usage

    Adding a flight school to the operation to bring future pilots into the South Dakota area and then providing an in state career path for them for the next ten years. The path of a pilot is about 2 years for a commercial pilot license then about 4-8 years as a tour pilot and then into the Emergency Medical and Fire Fighting positions.

  • Business Plan

    The addition of a full flight school to our current tour business of 3 location in the South Dakota area will greatly grow our business as well as provide a great pilot pipeline to for these future pilots. Some helicopter pilots also transition into the airlines. The two owners of Dakota Rotors LLC have over 50 years of combined experience in the helicopter world and made the change to owners with the sole purpose of providing better pilots to the larger operations they have been a part of over the years. We saw a true lack of professional training of pilots coming from the smaller operations throughout the United States and wanted to change that. After running large 135 tour operations for years we made the decision to quit complaining about the problem and become the solution. In the last 3 years we have begun to send very qualified pilots up to these larger organizations and are being recognized for it. The next step for us to to get these pilots right from the get go and provide them with the proper schooling to and direction to commercial pilots.

  • Self Identified Competition

    There are several flight schools around the US but on of the largest we see pilots from is Southern Utah University and we are not impressed with the quality of eduction they are receiving. It is clear money is more important than the students they are training. We have the financial stabilization to provide affordable flight training while still running our tur operations and giving the students the education and career path they deserve.
