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.

Staff is always very friendly when I speak with them on the phone, the service at the terminal is the same. I feel very safe flying with Helijet, their pilots are fantastic. Highly recommend if you have any time constraints and need to get between the downtowns quickly.

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 are modern, clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly and efficient. both terminal facilities are easy to use and close to business centres.

This was the first time we have flown on Helijet and we loved it. We usually fly on Harbour Air and they are very good as well. This time we thought we would try Helijet. It is such a different way to go. The staff were great and the flight was so nice. It was a little noisy for my wife but the earplugs worked just fine. I have no idea why anyone who is heading to downtown Vancouver or Victoria would take a Ferry ? With flying over you don’t have to worry about traffic or parking and your there so quickly and its such a nice flight. We will definitely be fling Helijet again !

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.

Response from Helijet, Director of Marketing at Helijet International
Responded Aug 5, 2014
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 for joining us on your trip! We hope to see you again!
