ANTHELION HELICOPTERS FOUNDER AND CEO
Alex became a helicopter pilot in 2001 upon getting thoroughly addicted during his first helicopter demo flight at the Torrance Airport in California. However, even before that first flight, the sight of another student doing something that looked so cool and yet just as difficult sparked his desire to learn.
Alex was very lucky to have an inspirational helicopter pilot instructor at the time that helped him make his dream become a reality. Alex’s instructor cemented his passion for helicopters and love for the open skies. He was set on becoming a helicopter pilot Los Angeles, CA.
After a few years of working for the British Royal Navy and the Ministry of Defense Alex came back to the United States in 2007 to continue his career and become a helicopter pilot Los Angeles, CA. Even during the time of working as a successful Flight Instructor, Utility Pilot, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) pilot Alex has always had the dream of starting his own helicopter flight training company.
Alex’s chance came when he got together with Nina, Chief Pilot, to create Anthelion Helicopters. A helicopter company that focuses on helicopter flight training lessons, helicopter tours, and aerial photography.
Alex surrounded himself with a great team of people that share the same core values of safety, integrity, passion, and love for the entire business experience. Being half of the founding team for Anthelion Helicopters, Alex hopes that he will be able to develop and inspire the same love and passion for helicopters in his students as the one he has for it himself.
