Family, Passion, and Drive is how I would sum up my experience with Stacia Joyce at Neacola Mtn Air. Like many others, I have dreamed of flying helicopters and explored many training options around Southcentral Alaska. What I have taken away from my varied instructional experiences is that flight instruction, helicopters especially requires mutual effort between both student and instructor as well as individual flexibility. Scheduling is something of a challenge with everyone living their busy lives, Neacola has one of the most unique and accepting schedules that really tailored to my individual needs. Learning from Stacia I truly felt as if I was part of a team working towards a common goal. She assures you to not be discouraged and has the energy to properly light that motivation you need at times. when talking to her you can get a small glimpse into her diverse background as an experienced helicopter pilot in Alaska and its challenges she has gone through to give you, the student a first hand account of real life situations. Along with the experience, there is the surrounding community you can find associated with good morals, safety, and fun experiences that tells you about the quality of people they are at Neacola. I earned my pilot license with Neacola Mtn Air but I also gained more when it comes to life and friendships.
