Helicopters

Juneau serves as a base of operations for NorthStar, Temsco, and Coastal helicopter companies. We have working relationships with all three operators, and schedule regular flights with each one depending on availability. The pilots generally work and live in Juneau throughout the year, and are true experts in mountain flying. Many of them are our friends, and can be seen flying pro-riders on several Warren Miller, Teton Gravity Research, and Matchstick Production films.

The mighty A-Star is at its best in the mountains…

A-Star helicopters are our main mode of transport for accessing the mountains. They are manufactured by American Eurocopter and are designed to comfortably transport up to six passengers, plus the pilot, all in a forward facing position. The Helicopter Tour Operators Program of Safety (TOPS) is an organization which sets flight standards that exceed the Federal Aviation Administration regulations. Temsco & NorthStar are active members are regularly audited throughout the year to verify compliance.
