About

OUR STORY

Blue Hill Helicopters was founded over 13 years ago by experienced pilots at Norwood Memorial Airport (KOWD). We decided that Boston needed a modern safe helicopter company that could provide the best flight training possible in new well maintained helicopters. With over 13 years in business and 20,000 flight hours of flight training and taking customers on tours of Boston, we believe we provide the leading helicopter operations in Boston. We are the closest tour operator to the city, we own our aircraft and take pride in our customers from the minute they walk in the door. All our pilots are professional flight instructors that have gone through FAA certified flight instruction. Safety is our number one priority.
