Heli Service

See below as to price quote and other questions & answers FYI.

Good news. We have a access to a new Aspen based helicopter with FAR Part 135 certification, locally owned by a family for personal use that allows us to book flights when not shuttling their friends / family back and forth from Aspen to their ranch over the hill.


It is a Eurocopter 130B4, a helicopter designed specifically for sightseeing, with oversized windows and increased viewing angles. The large doors and a low-slung fuselage make for easy boarding, and the ride is noticeably quieter than other similarly sized craft — both to those inside the cabin and on the ground.

The craft holds six passengers comfortably — with two in the front row with the pilot — plus plenty of space for baggage and the other items like bicycles, and other elements of your Rocky Mountain lifestyle.

We always want to take into consideration the weather for safety purposes.
