Guidance Aviation has been experiencing great success by using the Robinson R66 turbine helicopter for a variety of commercial helicopter operations.
Guidance Aviation offers helicopter charter services utilizing the Robinson R66. Applications vary from construction deliveries, airport shuttles, executive transportation, scenic tours, pipeline/power line assessment and external loads.
“The Robinson R66 helicopter has one of the lowest operating costs and best safety records in the industry,” said Cody Cooper, director of flight operations. “Guidance provides exclusive point-to-point transportation in helicopters as well as external load operations and mission-critical projects that require the flexibility and efficiency only a helicopter can afford.”
Dave Roy, director of communications, said: “We really enjoy providing helicopter services to special occasions. We can do scenic excursions, marriage proposals and even weddings in unusual locations. We let customers be very creative.”
