R/C heli flying is difficult to learn and you need someone to support you in the hobby, not just sell to you.
Billings, Mont. (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Heliproz Inc. today announced the successful implementation of their Team HeliProz mentorship program. The program was launched in March of 2012 to provide mentorship to new remote helicopter pilots, promote passion for the sport to other enthusiasts and allow seasoned pilots to earn rewards.
HeliProz recognized a gap in the industry for a program to support new remote helicopter pilots. “R/C heli flying is difficult to learn and you need someone to support you in the hobby, not just sell to you,” said Kurt Kreiger, manager, HeliProz Inc. “Many events bring in big names in rc helicopter flying to provide showmanship, but you have to get the basics down or it will be a 30 second hobby you’ll walk away from. Our program is uniquely designed to mentor people new to the hobby, while promoting HeliProz products.”
Since its inception, Team HeliProz has recruited 130 pilots who have provided mentorship to more than 200 beginners at numerous fun fly events. The criteria for Team HeliProz pilots is to be proficient in flying, willing to attend events, and bring their knowledge, passion and experience to those new to the hobby. In return, pilots receive exclusive offers and discounts while qualifying for year-end prizes by earning points. Pilots earn points by attending fun fly events, posting tips and tricks on the Team HeliProz website, publishing narrated videos using HeliProz products and various other activities.
“Team HeliProz pilots attend fun fly events to share best practices and teach others how to fly, in addition to helping them decide which equipment to buy. They understand the steep learning curve in this hobby and are willing to take the time to help me be a better pilot,” said David Brown, fun fly attendee and beginner pilot.
On December 20th, HeliProz will be awarding prizes to the top three pilots with the most points accumulated in 2012. They are now accepting applications for 2013 Team HeliProz pilots through December 15, 2012.
