Overview

Established in 1986Helijet has been a proud and active participant in British Columbia's growth for the past two and a half decades.In 1986, with a carefully conceived vision, a single helicopter, and a handful of enthusiastic employees, Helijet launched Canada's first scheduled helicopter service.From that single helicopter, flying eight times a day between downtown Vancouver and downtown Victoria, Helijet has grown into a dynamic publicly-traded company with operations in Richmond, Vancouver, Victoria, Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii. Helijet's fleet of 13 medium and large helicopters, and corporate configured or medically-equipped Learjet, is maintained, flown and administered by a dedicated crew of over 100 employees. Helijet is proud of its growth and accomplishments, and looks forward to many more decades of service.

While I love flying on seaplanes, Helijet is the more reliable way to travel from Vancouver harbour to Victoria harbour due to its modern navigation/weather radar equipment. It can still fly if fog becomes an issue or if the weather changes quickly. The helicopter interiors...More

We took the seaplane out to Victoria and chose to take the helicopter ride back. Better views from the helicopter and a very smooth ride in a 12 seater aircraft. The receptionist in Victoria was a little fierce but otherwise a very enjoyable experience.More
