Why Jetboy

Experience Equals Safety and We Hire Only Highly Experienced Pilots

We are Not a Flight School

Jetboy Helicopters is a Helicopter Charter and Tour Company. That may seem like an obvious statement but the reality is that most of the companies that offer helicopter tours in Los Angeles are actually flight schools that supplement their business by offering tours. At Jetboy, the comfort, safety, and enjoyment of our guests are our only concerns.

Dedication

We do one thing, and we do it better than anyone else. Our sole focus is on creating the best possible helicopter experience for our guests. Period.

Comfort

Our helicopters feature air conditioning, leather seating, huge windows, whisper quiet headsets, and an amazing in flight musical accompaniment for your enjoyment.

Experience is Safety

Our lead pilot has over 3000 hours of helicopter pilot in command (PIC) flight experience.  In addition, every pilot is highly knowledgeable about the Los Angeles area. You will be able to converse freely with your pilot as he provides live, inflight narration.

We like to stress the experience of our pilots because it is an often overlooked aspect when our guests are shopping for the right company to fly with. Most of the flight schools that offer tours as a sideline to their training business use low time, (often only a few hundred hours of flight experience), inexperienced pilots to fly their tours because that’s the nature of their staff. These are young pilots just starting out in the business trying to amass the time necessary to come to work for a company like ours!

Experience the difference. Fly with the Professionals. Fly with Jetboy Helicopters

The Crew

He has logged over 3000 hours as pilot in command and has flown thousands of tour and charter flights in the Los Angeles basin. In addition to his tour work he has flown television and film production, aerial photography, and agricultural applications. He has also worked hand in hand with local police departments personally providing training for their helicopter pilots.

Jeremy Macias – Tour Pilot
Jeremy flies the majority of our tours, so you will most likely get a chance to meet him when you come in for your flight.  He holds Commercial, Flight Instructor, and Instrument Instructor ratings in the helicopter.  Always smiling, always upbeat, one of the best helicopter pilots working in the Los Angeles area today.  Check out Jeremy’s reviews on our Yelp page to see how amazing his tours are.

Jim Duis – Flight Services Director
Jim has been with Jetboy from the beginning. He brings a pilot’s perspective to the work he does for us, and his flight training gives him an in depth understanding of the nuts and bolts workings, and needs, of a large helicopter tour company. Jim is on the ramp most days working with the pilots to make sure your tour is the safest and most enjoyable experience possible.

The Helicopters

Theater Style Seating With Panoramic Views From Every Seat and Air Conditioned For Your Comfort

We fly the Robinson R44 helicopter, renowned for comfort, safety, and fantastic theater style seating.

All of our aircraft feature huge bubble windows for maximum visibility, and air conditioning for maximum comfort. With no obstructions to block your view no matter where you are sitting the view is panoramic and amazing.

Because the R44 only seats four, our aircraft offers you an intimate opportunity to converse freely with your companions and the pilot while enjoying an amazing musical accompaniment on the in-flight sound system.
