"I recently completed the VRLL course with AHT at Delta Helicopters. Rob broke the skill down and brought it right back to basics. I learned more in 4 hours with him than I did in 20 hours by myself in the bush. I now feel confident bringing a hook to a hand, and look forward to applying these skills in both the precision and production long-line environments. I have and will continue to recommend this course to friends and colleagues, and I'm hoping the company gets Rob back next year for recurrent training."

"Hey Rob, awesome course! Learned a ton and it's nice to have a great base of knowledge to work from. To go from zero longline experience to the ability to safely bring a load to its spot and to do so in so little time, the formula works! Thanks again man!"

"I had the privilege of participating in Rob Libby's long line vertical reference course in April of 2013. It is clear Rob has taken the time to design this course to maximize results through a clear, organized and fun learning curriculum that engages his students. I am truly surprised at my progression throughout this course and it definitely exceeded my expectations! I look forward to long lining with confidence in the future with the skillset and knowledge that I have gained through Mr. Libby's course."

"Robert Libby of Advanced Helicopter Training came to our operation and conducted all of our ground support, short haul, long line, and fire bucket training at our facility and in our aircraft.  He conducted one of the best flight instructional courses that I have ever had the privilege of taking.  Our pilots gained valuable insight into this very precise and demanding type of flying through the vast experience that Robert has had throughout his career.  We received numerous “unwritten” techniques and knowledge in our courses that would normally take years and years to learn on your own. This training is invaluable to anyone considering external load operations!"

"Rob helped me out big time.  I spent half a day on the ground with Rob and it dramatically changed my long lining skills.  Everything is so much easier when you’re aware of everything that is going on with a long line.
Thanks again Rob."

"Three years ago I trained for external cargo load and water bucket with Mr. Robert Libby.  Everything has gone very well, now my personal skills are up and I have been flying external load work with the Commision Federal de Electricity in Mexico. So thanks again Robert for sharing all your knowledge.
Your course is very well done."

"My name is Gilberto Ortiz.  Captain Robert Libby gave me a few years ago the Vertical reference long line and the bambi bocket training in my country (Mexico). I learned every thing I know about the vertical reference and Bambi bucket from him and now I am working for one of the most important helicopters companies in my country raising power lines and fighting wildfires.  He is an excelent teacher and very good and professional pilot."
