Who We Are

The principals of San Francisco Helicopter Tours have been in the helicopter business for over 40 years. John and Teri, both pilots, started their own business in 1976. In the late 80’s, the company started developing the leisure and incentive visitor market.
Initially at Oakland Airport, operations shifted to the Executive Terminal at SFO in 1995.

Expanding in 2002, a second departure point, the Sausalito Heliport, was established, improving accessibility and increasing flexibility for client programs. Aircraft manufactured by Bell Helicopters, holding one of the highest safety records in the aviation industry. Coaches and facilities meet the highest standards in the commercial tour industry. Our Pilots are factory trained and reviewed by the FAA on an annual basis. Aircraft undergo regular FAA inspections, meeting, and more often exceeding, FAA standards.
