I first noticed the value of the Marlboro Airport (in Marlborough Massachusetts) when I was ferrying a helicopter out of Marlboro Airport on a long distance trip. What a great location for a flight school – I figured there would be some demand for helicopter tours of Boston and a helicopter flight school to serve the Metro West communities, but little did I know how popular it would become.
What started as one helicopter has now grown to two full-time helicopters, two instructors, and one part-time helicopter for tours of Boston from the Marlboro airport.
So it was the chilly autumn morning that started with one of our Marlboro helicopter instructors – Anthony – ferrying down the latest helicopter for the Marlboro operation – our beloved 83127!
We’ve been flying 127 for close to 2 years now, and it’s a dependable Robinson R22 Beta. It’s one of the nicest looking Betas we’ve seen, and it’s served us well for hundreds of hours as a backup ship. Now it’s doing full-time duty in at the Marlboro airport in Marlborough, Mass.
We are the largest helicopter flight school in the Boston, Mass area, and our success is due to the hard work of all our staff. In particular, Anthony and Matt at Marlboro have worked extremely hard to make this a quality operation, just like our Lawrence, Mass and Alexandria Bay, NY flight schools.
We are also thankful of the Marlboro airport manager, Bob Stetson, for helping us along at his airport. Without him, our flight school would not be possible.
North Andover Flight Academy is an innovative Boston helicopter flight school that provides quality helicopter flight instruction under Part 141 and Part 61.
Stop in to the Marlboro airport for a helicopter tour of Boston or a helicopter flight lesson. Say hello to Bob, Matt, and Anthony while you’re there.
You will be glad you dropped in!
