Housing Assistance

Quantum Helicopters staffThe Phoenix metropolitan area is booming. Numerous inexpensive rental properties exist within a short drive of the Chandler airport. For assistance in locating a rental property, contact Relocation Central, www.relocationcentral.com, at (866) 603-1596 or (480) 603-1596.

Many of our short-term students opt to stay at the In Town Suites, about seven miles from our Chandler office. The In Town Suites is clean, affordable and offers its guests full kitchens, full baths, and weekly housekeeping services. For rates, contact the In Town Suites at (407) 350-8865.

Occasionally our students seek other students as roommates so if that is something you are interested in we may be able to help. 

We are happy to help you select the perfect option so feel free to call us at (480) 814-8118 to inquire about these or other lodging possibilities.

Internet / Library Services

Quantum maintains a student library of commonly used reference books and other instructional aides to help our students with their studies. We also provide unlimited free access to a number of computer-based training programs, including test prep and GPS software.

Test prep software is the ideal way to prepare for the computerized FAA written exams — you can take unlimited practice tests before sitting down to the real thing. GPS training software allows our instrument students to become familiar with this important navigation aid on the ground, rather than paying to learn about it in the air.

Additionally, our students have Internet access for both flight planning purposes and personal use. It is not necessary to have a personal computer to complete any of our training programs.

Airport Transport

For out of town students, Quantum offers transportation to and from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport at the beginning and end of training. 

Resume Development

We’re pleased to help our students create and promote their resumes. Simply ask one of our staff members for advice on yours.

Job Placement

New pilots almost invariably begin their careers as flight instructors. Because of our high volume of training, including contracts with overseas operators, we’re able to hire most of our Certified Flight Instructor students shortly after graduation.  This is unique in the flight training industry where at many schools all graduates are competing for the same jobs.  Here at Quantum, due to the make-up of of our students, typically many students are not looking for employment with us which results in very good chances of hire for those who are.  We are very loyal to our customers and as such will do everything we can to help them get their starts in the aviation industry.

We maintain numerous contacts within the helicopter industry and are happy to help our students advance their careers.  Additionally due to our longevity in this industry, many of our graduates and former instructors are involved with the hiring process in helicopter companies around the country.  You know what they say, "it's not about WHAT you know but WHO you know!"  The industry is booming and opportunities abound. If you have questions about your prospects as a professional pilot, feel free to discuss them with a member of our staff.
