ULA, located in Salt Lake City, UT, was founded in the spring of 2004 by Lois Reid and Sean Reid, her son and business partner, as a single-aircraft flight school operating under FAR Part 61 and FAR 91 commercial operations. In May of that year, ULA obtained its first FAR Part 141 certification. Within two years the fleet grew to four Robinson helicopters and work began on the current hangar/office facility.
In 2006, Upper Limit was able to train from Private Pilot to Certified Flight Instructor under FAA Part 141 and became the only helicopter flight school in Utah to be registered as a Post Secondary School with the Department of Commerce and Division of Consumer Protection. In early 2007, Upper Limit began working with Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) in an effort to leverage the potential synergies of both parties. This exclusive partnership has been a catalyst for new ideas and for ULA to improve and further develop its curricula.
Currently, with 11 FAR Part 141 certificates, ULA offers flight training under both FAR Part 141 and Part 61. Additionally, ULA is eligible to utilize VA benefits and is authorized for commercial operations under FAR Part 135, 133, and 137.
Upper Limit Aviation considers itself first and foremost a helicopter training facility. Training in the same aircraft used for ULA's commercial charters and tours, students gain an understanding of the skill required of pilots within the commercial industry. From the in-house helicopter maintenance and Robinson Service Center to the utility work done by its 135 pilots and instructors, ULAs services demonstrate an interconnectivity between training and the aviation industry.
