Safety is the reason that HeliFlite is often more expensive than many other helicopter services. We only fly twin-engine aircraft and always with two pilots. For us there is no compromise. Our clients, their families, and those in charge of their security wholeheartedly agree. With over 38,000 hours of accident-free operation in our 15 year history, the decision to choose HeliFlite is an easy one.


Safety is of primary importance at HeliFlite and we’ve been awarded the industry’s highest recognition for our record and commitment. The company undergoes regular audits by leading aviation safety firms ARG/US International Inc. and Wyvern. All aspects of fight operations are scrutinized during these assessments—fleet, crew, flight operations, and maintenance.

ARG/US Platinum 
HeliFlite holds the prestigious ARG/US Platinum Rating. The Platinum rating is the highest level of the ARGUS Ratings. It is awarded to those experienced operators who meet the criteria for Gold and pass the ARGUS Platinum on-site safety audit. A Platinum rating requires a well-developed Safety Management System, a clear and workable Emergency Response Plan, effective policies and procedures, and documented records for all major aspects of operations and maintenance within a flight department or charter company.

The Wyvern Wingman standard is the globally-recognized best practice audit developed by corporate aviation directors to ensure charter operators meet a higher operating standard. The Wingman PASS Standard checks and verifies 150+ data points to ensure a trip meets the Wingman Standard at the time of departure. The Wingman program is an affirmation of commitment to industry best practices and a high level of safety culture as measured through the Wyvern audit process. In addition to a very demanding audit, which measures all operational sides of the charter operation, an ongoing commitment to provide Wyvern important safety data is required. This includes very specific data that validates pilot recency experience, continual training of pilots and maintenance technicians, and updates to critical programs such as Safety Management Systems (SMS).
