Always reliable and efficient, their world-class service and top-notch equipment enables us to put total confidence in their capabilities, reduce costs and streamline logistics. Between Ivor, Mandy and their pilots, you won’t find a nicer team to work with.

My boyfriend surprised me and took me on the “Surf and Turf” tour for Valentine’s Day. It was incredible!

Our favorite parts were seeing the San Diego Wild Animal Park from the air, seeing a whale in La Jolla, flying by downtown, and seeing Coronado.

Our pilot / tour guide was Bryan, and he couldn’t have been nicer. He was more than happy to loop around and see a couple nice houses that we liked. I really recommend it!

“WOW!!! I can’t say enough wonderful things about this trip. Corporate helicopters really made our flight around San Diego amazing. The views were breathtaking and you were really able to see the best view of the San Diego coast and the cliffs. What really topped this trip off was the stop at a local winery where my boyfriend proposed to me 🙂 I can’t thank Corporate Helicopters enough for helping make that day so special!”

In June 2012, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Air Operations Bureau researched options and vendors for the 144-month service on two of their three EC-120s.  After thorough analysis, and recommendations from other law enforcement agencies and Eurocopter customers, Supervising Mechanic, John Austin and Commander/Pilot, Lt. Tim Cotter, selected Corporate Helicopters in San Diego.  John was impressed with the open lines of communication and attention to detail as the first of two projects began.  John recalls, “From the beginning, Director of Maintenance Jon McClure, Chief Inspector Mike Duncan, and Lead Mechanic Calvin Penfound, were completely receptive and actually encouraged my participation in the project.  After my first visit, I was impressed with the organization of their facility, their attention to detail, and obvious emphasis on safety.  Their commitment to providing complete overhaul service in a timely manner, coupled with exceptional customer service surpassed our expectations.”

I want to send my sincerest thanks and gratitude to Ivor Shier, Garner Sheperd, and the Corporate Helicopters team. Their dedication and efforts, as well as their encouragement, helped me to fulfill my dream of flying helicopters!

I will always cherish the time I spent as a student at Corporate Helicopters, and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking an environment of professionalism, encouragement and dedication to achieving their goal of becoming a Commercial Helicopter Pilot.

I am thoroughly enjoying my first position as a pilot here at Helicopter Adventures in Myrtle Beach, SC. I hope that I will see everyone at Corporate again some time, and wish all of you success!
