As a tourism, utility and charter provider in South Central Alaska, serving all of Alaska, we consider it our responsibility to be on the forefront of safety.
Understanding the stigma attached to aviation, especially in the realm of tourism, we pride ourselves on our safety practices. procedures and protocols.
maintaining a stellar safety record
A few things about our hiring and training processes that are standard for our company:
Maintenance Of Our Fleet
The maintenance of our Robinson R44 and R66 helicopters is performed “in house”. We are an authorized Robinson Helicopter Service Center and a FAR 145 Repair Station. Our aircraft are maintained by A & P and IA mechanics to FAR 135 standards in accordance with Robinson’s Technical Publications.
Regular 50 hour, 100 hour, and Annual maintenance and inspection checks are performed on each insured aircraft. Daily flight and maintenance logs are updated and are in each helicopter.
Thorough, daily pre-flight checks are performed by each pilot, for each aircraft flown.
Atmosphere of Safety
Safety in the realm of helicopters extends far beyond the pilots. While the helicopters are in the air flying, there is a whole operation on the ground maintaining everything from a safe landing zone, to satellite communication with pilots, to welcoming, weighing in, and safety briefing each and every passenger to monitoring weather and air traffic. Keeping passengers safe around departure areas is just as important as keeping them safe inside the aircraft. Ground crew and operations are also tracking any aircraft in flight and until all aircraft are secured for the day.
As owner/operators, we feel that operating under the highest safety standards just is not a choice. We absolutely love providing the services that we do and want to continue to do so for years to come.

highly recommend outbound heli adventures to anyone planning a trip to one of the most beautiful spots mother nature has created.
“One of the best experiences of our lives.”
“We did a glacier landing adventure, and unlike some other companies in the area (who we saw land and leave very quickly) we had a good amount of time on the ice where Chris took us on a mini hike to some of the waterfalls and pools on the glacier.
It was truly a memorable experience and highly recommend it to everyone.”
