How It All Began

Formed in the later part of 2009 by two guys with a love for flying. One a very successful self-made Entrepreneur and Businessman, the other a highly motivated Commercial Helicopter Pilot and Flight Instructor.

We saw a niche market in the Metro Los Angeles area for a Helicopter Company that could provide high end Helicopter Tours and Charters using a Jet Helicopter. At prices that are very close to what the other companies are offering using their smaller Robinson gas engine Helicopters.

We purchased our first helicopter a Bell 206 B3 Jet Ranger in the beginning of 2010.

The reason we decided on a Bell Jet Ranger as our first helicopter was really a simple decision, Safety! “The Bell Jet Ranger has the best safety record of any helicopter in the industry!”*. It offered us a more powerful and comfortable helicopter with the ability to transport up to four passengers at a time. The superior comfort is immediately noticeable both in the amount of room our helicopter provides the passengers and the very smooth stable flight characteristics of our larger Jet Helicopter. We have a luggage compartment that can actually carry luggage and keeps it out of the passenger area. To further increase our passenger’s safety and comfort we installed a state of the art avionics system with TCAS (the Traffic alert Collision Avoidance System) and the top of the line Bose Aviation X noise canceling headsets.

Helicopter Services

We recognized that Los Angeles has a growing need for Executive Charters and Air Taxi Services. People in the Entertainment Industry, Professionals, Doctors, Athletes, Executives, Lawyers and Entrepreneurs continue to move further and further outside of the city to smaller communities. Traffic continues to increase on all of the road systems throughout Los Angeles. Your time spent on the roads and in traffic is lost income, you’re not doing what made you successful. We are building a system of Point to Point locations throughout Los Angeles and its surrounding cities to get you in and out of the city as quickly as possible.

We saw the need for Helicopter Services for High Profile Individuals. We chose our location and designed it with Privacy and Security in mind. When VIP’s want to take their family or friends for a Helicopter Tour or a Charter they call us.

Helicopter Training Company

In addition to the Helicopter Tours and Charters we saw the need for a different kind of Helicopter Training Company. A company that values ours Flight Instructors and appreciates our Students. Without Flight Instructors and Students, Aviation would have no future.

Flight Instructors have worked hard studied harder and spent enough money to get a college degree to become a Professional Pilot. We treat ours as Professional Pilots, pay them as Professional Pilots and increase their pay as they gain experience.

Students deserve the best possible flight training available. Our goal is to provide our students with responsible, high quality professional training. Training that is personalized and tailored to each students training needs. We will train you to get licensed, to be a safe, confident and a knowledgeable pilot. We teach you to fly; we don’t fly you to earn a pay check!

Loyalty and Trust

Our company was built on some very simple principles. To provide our customers with a superior product at a competitive price! To always conduct our business in the same manner that we expect to be treated by other businesses! To treat our employees honestly and with respect! To earn your Loyalty and Trust in your dealings with us, be it in your repeat business or in your passing a good word along to others regarding us!

* Bell Jet Ranger helicopter has been statistically proven by the NTSB to be the safest aircraft ever built! The study included both airplanes and helicopters, and examined numerous factors including number of flight hours, number of landings, and accident statistics, concluding that the Bell Jet Ranger helicopter is indeed the safest aircraft ever built.
