HeliFlite was founded in 1998 to introduce affordable helicopter ownership to business and leisure travelers. It was the first helicopter fractional ownership company and continues to set the standard for quality of aircraft, training, safety and service. Initially the fleet consisted of one new twin engine executive class Bell helicopter and has since expanded to a total of eight executive helicopters including top of the line models manufactured by Bell, Sikorsky and Agusta. The company remains dedicated to operating only twin engine, cabin-class executive helicopters.
In early 2004, HeliFlite expanded its offerings to include on demand charter and a 25-hour HeliCard™ program. In so doing, the company was able to appeal to a broader user base, from those who charter infrequently to heavy-usage frequent flyers. For those requiring full ownership, the company also offers aircraft management services—providing turnkey simplicity to the process of acquiring and operating a helicopter.
HeliFlite bases its helicopters at Newark International Airport, a six-minute hop to Manhattan’s three heliports. Their Newark base is centrally located to serve the entire Northeast, from Maryland to Maine.
Beyond the north-east, our Fractional owners and HeliCard clients enjoy access to our West Palm Beach (PBI) based helicopter during the winter season, when available. Also, HeliFlite provides exclusive twin-engine, dual pilot charter service to downtown Chicago and surrounding areas via the brand new Vertiport Chicago.
HeliFlite headquarters are located at 15 Brewster Road. North, Newark, New Jersey 07114
