The Buying Process
The purchasing, maintaining and operating a helicopter is not a simple operation. It is important for owners to seek professional guidance when interested in helicopter ownership.
It begins with a thorough survey, then we ensure project management is on hand to bring the airframe up to the standards of equipment fit required by the new owner and that the helicopter is ready for its intended use.
At each stage you are informed when key milestone are reached and once full regulatory compliance has been approved you’ll be invited for an inspection and first flight.
Managing the operation of a helicopter to Commercial Air Transport Standards is a complex task.
With ever-changing regulatory systems and rules, it is important for helicopter owners to place their trust in a company who can adapt to the changing faces of this aviation industry.
However, with the extensive experience and knowledge of Atlas Helicopters’ highly qualified and professional staff, you’ll find we can deliver value from owning a helicopter, by operating flexibly within the strict regulatory regime.
We also remove from owners any uncertainty and concern that may result from their lack of in-depth knowledge about aviation matters.
Flight and Customer Support
Every helicopter flight requires operational support to run smoothly and our Operations Team is experienced in every aspect of the company operations and is attuned to your travel needs and requirements.
Also on the agenda is professional and regular maintenance if your helicopter is to retain its value. When this is due Atlas’ Operations Team has access to other suitable equivalent helicopter types as and when your own helicopter is grounded for maintenance.
