A Special Passion for Helicopters

We offer helicopter training, sales, and service in an optimal setting.

  • Sweet Aviation is one of very few facilities in the Midwest that offers all facets of helicopter service, which is something we’re proud of and passionate about.
  • Fort Wayne is a highly convenient location to train in with a low cost of living, decongested airspace, and a safe, flat landscape.
  • Our location allows for trips to regional fun spots, such as Tony’s Restaurant in Findlay, Ohio, for amazing ribs; the downtown Indianapolis Heliport for shopping or dinner; or even Chicago for a night on the town. A rotorcraft license makes all of these trips quick, easy, and fun!

Enjoy the versatility and rewarding challenge of helicopter flight.

Sweet Aviation offers training in an Enstrom helicopter, a premier option for training due to its high level of safety, equipment, and comfort. And you’ll be training with certified, experienced pilots who truly love helicopter flight.

  • This is an ideal helicopter to learn in, giving you a comfortable cabin and a third seat, which you don’t often find in a training helicopter.
  • Our Enstrom is well-equipped with modern avionics, so you can do your Instrument training in it, as well.
  • We’ll soon be taking delivery of a brand-new Enstrom TH180 trainer, which will be the first one off the production line!

Contact Sweet Aviation today to learn about private pilot helicopter training; or if you’re already an airplane pilot, we can discuss how to get your helicopter add-on certificate.

Now that you’re a pilot, have you thought about ownership?


Helicopter ownership is within reach, whether it’s outright or fractional, split among three or four of your aviator friends. Imagine having your own helicopter available to you virtually anytime, anywhere. Sweet Aviation is an authorized Enstrom dealer and service center, which means that when you’re ready to own your own rotorcraft, new or used, we can take care of you.

Keep your helicopter happy and healthy.
