We offer full-service vertical lift capability and have the experience to support diverse contract requirements
There is nothing like getting a bird’s-eye-view of the world below. But doing so in a helicopter gives you the flexibility to get that perfect shot. Unlike a drone with limited loiter times, we can fly for hours. Flying with a professional pilot also allows you to get angles and approaches that would otherwise be impossible with an unmanned or fixed-wing platform.
Beginning in summer of 2019, #FLHT will be providing flight instruction to new students who are interested in achieving a Helicopter Private Pilot’s License. Learn more about our flight instruction here or contact us to schedule a discovery flight and begin the adventure of a lifetime!
Farm, Vineyard and Land Support
Agricultural support is a commonly sought helicopter capability. We can provide on-call frost clearing, crop inspection, land survey, rapid transport across large swaths and more. If you are a landowner, farmer or vintner, contact us to see what we can do for you!
Coming soon! When our on-demand charter service becomes available, you’ll be able to charter your private helicopter at affordable rates to get from A to B – including trips to New York City, Syracuse, Rochester, on your own schedule!
Don’t see a capability listed here but need our help? No problem. As a full-service vertical lift platform servicing virtually all of central New York, you can count on us to fulfill a role in your project. Helicopters can be used to provide unique capabilities that other aerial assets cannot. Airplanes can’t hover in place, drones have no decision making ability or human-level adaptability, yet helicopters can do it all. Contact us to explore what we can do for your agency.
Search and Rescue
Our founder is a trained military search and rescue pilot who can collaborate with ground assets and has a breadth of scenario planning experience. Our pedigree in search and rescue makes us a great resource to first responders. Whether you are a private agency or county department or otherwise, we welcome any interest in partnering to provide greater SAR capability to the Finger Lakes region.
Rotary wing flight is a proven capability for utility contractors. Whether you are scouting pipeline routes, surveying power stanchions or other typical activities, we can help.
