Preventative Measures for COVID-19

Given the unprecedented level of uncertainty at these times, we wanted to assure you of our current measures being taken here at Independent Helicopters!

As we move through the next several weeks, we will be focusing on business as usual.  Our internal procedures will maximize safety and efficiency for our employees and clients.

  • All helicopter cabins and controls will be sanitized before each flight.
  • Helicopter headsets will be sanitized before each flight and the use of your own headset is recommended as an additional precaution.
  • All offices will be sanitized at the start and end of each day

We are providing charter flights to transport family, friends, and colleagues home or out of their current locations to other places where they may feel safer.  With the addition of a larger helicopter, we are now able to help more people at a time.

We look forward to good health and happiness for years to come.
