Our team of pilots are highly trained and experienced professionals with thousands of hours of flight time in the Andes and other mountain ranges around the world, including the Himalayas, the Alps, and Turkey. They know the Andes Mountain Range exceedingly well. They are experts at flying helicopters in mountainous terrain. Our pilots manage landing zones at high altitude with superior expertise, and demonstrate the dedication expected of experienced Swiss mountain heli-ski pilots in their profession. Our pilots are the finest helicopter pilots available in the Southern Hemisphere.
Each helicopter is equipped with a GPS, satellite phone, VHF radio to maintain contact with the lodge and our guides, first aid, oxygen, avalanche, rescue, and survival equipment. We use primarily state-of-the-art AS 350-B3, with Bell 407 Helicopters standing by, by far the best machines for heli-skiing in the Andes.
