Quantum Helicopters
Professionalism. Experience. Integrity. Without compromise.
The President of Quantum Helicopters is Neil Jones. Neil has been involved in helicopter and airplane flight training for 26 years. Before founding Quantum in 1993, he was Chief Pilot for the largest civilian helicopter flight school of that time. Neil holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate with ratings in helicopters and airplanes and all helicopter and airplane instructor ratings. He currently serves on the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Safety Committee, and is an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.  In his spare time Neil enjoys following the SF Giants, driving his Shelby Mustang, and spending time with his family.

Chief Flight Instructor
Missy Palrang is Quantum's Chief Flight Instructor. She supervises flight training personnel, manages training quality and standardization, oversees curriculum development, and handles student enrollment, student financing and other student services. She has a B.S. Degree in Psychology and a M.S. Degree in Counseling, and holds commercial and flight instructor certificates with helicopter and instrument ratings. She is also an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.  Missy's hobbies include traveling, golf, eating out, and reading.

Director of Maintenance
The Director of Maintenance at Quantum Helicopters is Paul Mansfield. Paul is an FAA-licensed airframe and powerplant mechanic with inspection authorization; he is also a rated helicopter and airplane pilot. Paul has built and maintained Robinson helicopters since 1986 and has been with Quantum since its inception. He has completed all Robinson Helicopter factory maintenance courses and maintains Quantum’s fleet to the highest standards.  When not working at Quantum, Paul spends time restoring old cars, target shooting, watching action movies, and flying as time permits.

Office Manager
Doug Terry is Quantum’s Office Manager, responsible for customer service, accounting, record keeping and inventory control. Doug literally learned the helicopter business from the ground up: he started at Quantum working part-time washing helicopters.  Doug is our resident fussy cat who doesn't like anything.
