In the realm of aviation, where the sky is the limit, Helijet has been soaring high not just in the skies but also in community service and environmental stewardship. Two aspects that truly set them apart are their meaningful partnership with Power To Be and their dedicated efforts towards environmental sustainability.

Empowering Communities: The Power To Be Connection

Helijet’s commitment to making a positive impact reaches new heights through its valuable partnership with Power To Be. A supporter of Power To Be for over 20 years, Helijet has worked to share awareness of our work, donated auction prizes, provided flights for staff and participants, and sponsored and competed in our fundraising events like Power To Summit, totaling over $100,000 donated and over $100,000 of other in-kind support.

This collaboration extends beyond the typical business relationship, embodying the essence of community support. In 2020, when Mike Shannon, Power To Be’s former Board Chair, urgently needed to transport a critical package for ventilators, Helijet stepped up to the plate, ensuring that the supplies reached their destination promptly. This small act turned out to be a significant contribution to the healthcare response efforts, with the transported components playing a crucial role in life-saving efforts.

Environmental Stewardship: Flying High on Sustainability

Helijet doesn’t just stop at community engagement; it is also dedicated to minimizing its environmental footprint. In the face of the global climate crisis, Helijet has taken meaningful steps towards sustainability. The company recognizes that the aviation industry plays a role in environmental impact, and it is committed to doing its part.

Efforts include investing in an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft from BETA Technologies and integrating it into their existing network of helicopter services. These eVTOL aircraft promise quieter, lower-cost, and sustainable air transportation. The decision to embrace eVTOL technology aligns with Helijet’s vision of introducing zero-emission technologies. The move not only contributes to a greener future but also positions Helijet at the forefront of advancements in the aviation industry. Additionally, Helijet is also transitioning their shuttle van fleet to electric vehicles, with a goal to complete that transition by summer 2024. As part of that, Helijet is donating a vehicle to Power To Be to support program transportation.

Helijet’s proactive approach extends beyond its own operations: they endeavour to be a beacon of positive change. The commitment to environmental responsibility isn’t just a trend for Helijet; it’s a journey towards a future where aviation and sustainability coexist harmoniously.

Soaring Towards a Bright Future

Helijet’s dual commitment to community empowerment and environmental sustainability showcases the company’s ethos. Through partnerships like the one with Power To Be, Helijet demonstrates the profound impact that businesses can have on their communities. Simultaneously, the embrace of eVTOL technology positions Helijet as a trailblazer in environmentally conscious aviation practices.

In the boundless skies where Helijet operates, the company is not merely flying; it’s charting a course towards a brighter, more sustainable future. As we look up, we see more than helicopters; we see a company that uplifts communities and takes bold steps towards a greener tomorrow.
