Thank you for the great service…..It was a pleasure working with your company.
You guys are the best!
Thanks again for all of your guidance beyond just setting up the fuel drops for us. Iram and everyone he brought to the shoot were just terrific! Not a weak link to be found.
“I booked a flight as a birthday present for my girlfriend, her daughter and I. The reservation process was flawless and effortless. The flight itself was amazing and the pilot was great. We had such a blast and already planning another adventure. Thank you so much Corporate Helicopters. You guys are awesome!!!!
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!
“I would like to thank Corporate helicopters for their professionalism in handling the sale of my helicopter. From negotiation to helping close the escrow and delivery, I really couldn’t have done it without you.”
Breath taking! One of the things you have to do in your lifetime!

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!

Dave Cloutier, Flight Student
“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!”

Thanks for everything on our shoot, the experience was amazing!
The hosts and crew thank you for your involvement in the “Human Catapult” episode with athlete Scott Smith in Perris, CA. The Wescam shots were a great addition to the show!
I was smiling for the entire flight, so much so that my face hurt… I was hooked immediately. I set out to earn my helicopter rating.
The highlight of our vacation.
