In 1992 the idea of creating a company that would provide world class aviation services in the Dominican Republic was born. The visionary idea at the time was to utilize helicopters to facilitate a variety of solutions otherwise non-existent in the country. The primary idea was to be able to offer transportation, entertainment, charter flights and tourist sightseeing.

For this reason, HELIDOSA was created and since then has become the largest Certificated Helicopter Air Carrier in the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean Region currently flying more than 15,000 passengers annually. HELIDOSA has become synonymous with prestige in local as well as national markets, obtaining high brand recognition based on its safety record and excellence in customer service.

With more than 20 Rotor Wing Aircraft and 6 Jets, Helidosa Aviation Group is able to provide it's clientele with a wide range of aviation services including Tourism, Air Ambulance, Utility and Charter Flights to and from local, as well as international destinations.

This was my 4th trip booked with Helidosa. I've booked the 3 past seasons. This time around the weather wasn't ideal to fly. Helidosa refunded me 100% of the charge without hesitation. It's comforting to see the company put safety first over profits. Let's hope for better weather next season. Thanks again.

What was disappointing from the moment I got on was the fact I was put in the back seat. I DID NOT know others would be riding with me! I paid to sit in the front seat with the huge wide window, instead of looking out a small back window. Try recording from the back seat...not fun! One person was... More

Our pilot was Emmanuel. What a great experience; beautiful and so safe 500 feet up! He pointed out our hotel and other things. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We took the 10 minute flight, which felt longer. We were very satisfied with it. Thanks!

This was one of my favorite things on the island. I think a quick copter fight is a good way to see beyond the resort. Yes, it may be pricey, but sometimes people does not realize the expense taking passengers up safely. I have been to places where they charged less and more. I have been to places where your...

We took the beautiful sunset helicopter ride and it was well worth the money!! The people are very accommodating and the ride in itself, at sunset, was unforgettable. The ride was safe and the pilot described everything we flew over thoroughly in multiple languages. He also made sure everyone on board had ample views of everything. Great excursion that we...

I've been in helicopters before but decided to treat my companion who hadn't. We did the 20 minute tour for $320 USD for two, and I still think it's just too much. Although pleasant, our pilot had a thick accent, so it was mostly visual, and seemed like it was over in a flash! It's a beautiful overall view of... More

We took a helicopter tour for my husbands 50th birthday, The tour was not cheap ($400 CDN for 20 min). When we got to the helicopter they put my husband in the front (I was fine with that as it was his birthday), but then the pilot signalled for me to get in behind him. He then proceeded to take...
