Delaware State University adds helicopter flight training to aviation program

Delaware State University is adding helicopter flight training to its class offerings.

The university is partnering with Horizon Helicopters of Newark. The university says the partnership will be the first in the northeastern U.S. between a helicopter training entity and a university or college aviation program, and will open up training in Delaware.

DSU already provides fixed wing flight training toward an aviation/professional pilot degree. The new agreement will add helicopter training as an option in the university's aviation program.
