Some pictures of the setup
Together with his brother Simone, formed Altitude Helicopters and after expanding the operations in Italy, Africa and Nepal, where hostile environment, extreme altitudes and marginal weather conditions had been the testing ground for staff and helicopters, 4 years ago they decided to open a flight school in San Diego, California.
Now Helipro and Altitude Helicopters joined the forces to provide the most professional, real world operation oriented and safest flight training provider.
Thanks to Peter Stahli, which will remain with us as Chief Pilot, the new Helipro will continue on the track of the great, extensive and well known experience gained so far adding another 20 years of international experience and real world approach.
1st October 2017 will remain a remarkable day. In fact Helipro entered to be part of Ameristar Aviation, a leading aviation venture based in US that has put together Altitude Helicopters Inc. and Helipro Inc.
The new President is Marcello Moro, originally form Italy and Helicopter Pilot and Flight Instructor, with a rewarding experience, flying in the most remote and difficult environments around the world.
