Helijet's fleet of 13 medium and large helicopters, as well as two medically-equipped Learjets, 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. « less

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.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We are glad you got to experience both air options on your recent trip to Vancouver & Victoria. I've send your comment to our Passenger Service department to remind the staff that 'fierce' is not the Helijet service we are known for. Thank you again for taking the time and... More

This was my second trip on Helijet, the first being about 10 years ago in the opposite direction. I really can't fault the service. There are free refreshments (tea, coffee, muffins, fruit etc.) and bathroom facilities at the terminals. The flight is fast and the views of the gulf islands are excellent. The main reasons for using the service this... More

Our family took the HeliJet from Vancouver to Victoria to visit a friend for lunch. Great customer service, especially considering we were traveling with two small kids under the age of 3. The interior of the helicopter was a little worn down, however, the views and experience were well worth it. Looking forward to our next flight.

Thank you for flying with us and for your valuable comments. We aim to keep our Customer Service to the highest standards so it's nice to hear it's working. We appreciate the notice on the interior, I will advise our maintenance department. We are constantly maintaining the helicopters and rotate the fleet through regular overhauls. Thank you again More

For those looking into travel to/from Vancouver/Victoria skip the ferry and take Helijet. The staff are wonderful, the aircraft is comfortable, you are across the pond in less than 30 minutes, and the view/trip is spectacular. On top of that I booked a great rate on the RotorsDailyRate. Yet another amazing experience with Helijet!!

On our trip to BC we decided to spring for the Helijet transfer to Victoria. Not only did this save us a lot of time, but it ended up feeling like a tour and a transfer rolled into one. The views are spectacular! The staff was so friendly, and the lounge is what all air travellers dream of. Thanks Helijet... More

As a going away present my husband surprised me and my two best friends with this tour. It was spectacular--indeed! We left from the heliport adjacent to the Seabus terminal, zoomed over the North Shore mountains, around to Howe Sound, then back over downtown via Stanley Park. I've lived in Vancouver for over 20 years: this gave me an entirely... More
