HeliAMS was founded in 2015 to offer helicopter flights above Amsterdam. We want people to experience how beautiful Amsterdam, its surrounding areas, the Zaanse Schans and the flower fields are from above.

HeliAMS B.V. is a privately owned and operated company.

The very best helicopters and pilots

Our aircraft is a state-of-the-art Robinson R66 helicopter. This single-engined helicopter undergoes a strict regime of maintenance inspections, which includes daily pre-flight checks, maintenance after every 30 & 50 hours of flight time, and deeper inspections every two years.

Our experienced pilots carry out a thorough regime of regular training and testing, and when not conducting charters and tours can also be found working as helicopter flight instructors and examiners
