A look at an HAI member up close and personal. In 1992, there were no multiservice helicopter operators in the Dominican Republic. Helidosa Aviation Group’s founders set out to change that situation, envisioning the use of helicopters for a variety of operations previously unavailable in the country, including transportation, entertainment, charter flights, and tourist sightseeing. Now, almost 30 years after it opened, Helidosa is the Dominican Republic’s premier full-service aviation company. Headquartered in Santo Domingo, the operator provides charter, air ambulance, and helicopter tour services using 23 helicopters and 13 fixed-wing aircraft. The former group includes Bell 206, 212, 407, 429, and 430 aircraft as well as Airbus EC135 and Robinson R66 helicopters. Geographic Range Helidosa’s charter and medical transportation services support the Caribbean (including French territories), Central and South America, Europe, and the eastern United States. The company uses helicopters for local and direct service and airplanes for longer-distance transportation. Helicopter charters are popular for quick trips throughout the Dominican Republic, from crowded city centers to the airport and between towns. Airplane charters, meanwhile, are popular throughout the Caribbean and beyond. Air Medical Services Helidosa is the only company in the Dominican Republic with full advanced life support aircraft
