|Helicopter training company relocates to Monroe|
Johnston Flying Services of Houma will relocate its headquarters to Monroe where it will open for business by December.
The new business is expected to employ between 20 and 25 people with salaries up to $25 per hour.
Johnston Flying Services, which provides helicopter training, has been in operation since 1999. It currently is based at Houma-Terrebonne Airport.
Monroe city officials announced the arrival of the new business at a news conference Wednesday at Monroe Regional Airport.
According to Johnston Flying Services director of operations Clyde Jewett, the move is a perfect fit for the company and its students.
"We're excited to offer a true professional helicopter training option for local aviation students," Jewett said. "We offer world class training and we are very flexible for student scheduling."
A memorandum of understanding between Johnston Flying Services and the University of Louisiana-Monroe will offer college students an opportunity to train at the flight school.
"We have a lot to offer students who attend our school and we want the local helicopter community to know about it," Jewett said.
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo was pleased the city has another opportunity to announce a new economic development success story.
"This new company will enhance what will be a first class new airport facility," Mayo said. "We welcome Johnston Flying Services to Monroe and look forward to their continued growth and success."
Johnston Flying Services is a Federal Aviation Administration part 141 certified helicopter flight training center. FAA Part 141 certification assures students that their flight school and programs of study have been reviewed and approved by FAA.
