About Us

Alice Springs HelicoptersAlice Springs Helicopters, the leading provider of commercial helicopter services in Central Australia, is based at Alice Springs Airport.  Commercial operations were established in 1992 with the company now operating nine helicopters and a maintenance facility.  Three satellite bases located at Glen Helen Resort (West MacDonnell Ranges, NT), Ross River Resort (East MacDonnell Ranges, NT) and Etadunna Station (Lake Eyre Basin,SA) complement our daily operations.

We offer a broad range of helicopter services from scenic flights and heli-safaris to filming and photography, mineral exploration support and search and rescue.  Our focus is on maintaining the highest standard of aviation service and safety and a visible reputation for excellent customer care.

Our team has an extensive background in rotary wing aircraft and we specialise in remote area services covering many of the inaccessible areas of Central Australia.  We employ qualified, locally based pilots with a passion for professionalism and flying in the unrestricted Australian Outback skies.
