American Eurocopter Service Center

Corporate Helicopters is now an authorized American Eurocopter Parts and Service Center.

In August we hung our sign as Eurocopter’s newest service center and although we already are an FAA 145 Repair Station, this shows one more level of commitment towards providing the best care possible for our customers.

Travels with LIDAR

In June, pilot Garner Shepard embarked on a three-week geological survey job in a LongRanger BIII equipped with a special LIDAR system.

Garner and the technicians from Towill, Inc. flew multiple jobs throughout California, Oregon and Washington where they flew past Mount Shasta, Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens. They collected data using a laser mapping system that creates a 3D image with precise GPS accuracy. While the primary focus was power lines, they also mapped dams and landslides as well.


San Diego Above and Beyond

Corporate Helicopters in partnership with HVS Productions produced a program titled “San Diego Above and Beyond” for KPBS. It was shot entirely in High Definition with Corporate Helicopters’ in-house gyro-stabilized HD Camera System.

Viewers are sure to see of San Diego from a new perspective featuring spectacular aerial footage showing nature and lifestyle from the ocean to the desert. This documentary is currently airing on KPBS and “San Diego Above and Beyond” is also available for sale on Blu-Ray and DVD. Watch a preview.


Pie Town

On the way back from Texas with an AStar 350B2 we just purchased, Chief Pilot Gary Roesink and our newest pilot Greg James, stopped at Pie Town in New Mexico, to visit Mike Fowler. Mike and Gary were on the San Diego Police Department K9 unit for many years. After Mike retired from the police department he moved to Pie Town and bought the Cafe.

In order for the helicopter to land at the café, Mike cleared the parking lot and watered down the gravel. After that he prepared hamburgers and served "New Mexico Apple Pie", as seen on the Food Channel. Following a great meal, the pilots departed to continue their flight to San Diego.


Cross Country Trip

During the last week in April, pilot Jeff Horonzy, CFII and his student, Will Markiewicz, embarked on a ferry flight in a Robinson R22 from Frederick, MD to San Diego.

Having to plan the route to avoid thunderstorms, strong winds, and wildfires, they made it safely back to Montgomery Field after six adventurous days of flying. It truly was the ultimate cross-country flight experience.

Ron Vinci Lives On

On August 14th friends and family gathered together at our hangar to make sure Ron Vinci would live on through all of our shared memories. His love of aviation included Jets, Helicopters and Acrobatic Planes.

Ron Vinci was an accomplished businessman and aviator and a great friend. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and uncanny ability to achieve success in everything he tackled. He lived life to the fullest and will be missed.
