As a fare paying passenger you might wonder how you can be sure your flight is legal and safe. Whether you are flying as a passenger on business or leisure, if you a friend, family member or employer has paid for a flight in a helicopter that flight must meet certain safety standards. Such a flight is recognised in law as commercial air transport and should never be considered a private arrangement. The organisation or individual operating the flight must have the correct certificate, insurance and licences.

We hold an AOC (Air Operators Certificate) which enables us to conduct commercial air transport flights and are also an ATO (Authorised Training Organisation).
