SAFETY IS MORE THAN A SLOGAN VHSG’s contracted helicopter company, Pathfinder Aviation, is one of the finest helicopter operators in North America. Just like VHSG, Pathfinder’s top priority is safety; you can rest assured that the pilot in the front seat is the best at technical mountain flying. And with on-site mechanics, routine maintenance is always thorough and efficient.
THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB Valdez Heli-Ski Guides flies Eurocopter A-Star B3 helicopters for all of our operations. This powerful helicopter has an excellent safety record and is the best aircraft available for mountain flying. In fact, an A-Star recently set the high altitude landing record when it touched down on Mount Everest.
THE RIDE One of the first things you'll notice about flying in the Eurocopter A-Star B3 is that there isn't a bad seat in the house. The cockpit is configured so everyone has a great view. So sit back and enjoy some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and get a bird’s-eye view of your next run.
