Safety: Customer safety is our primary concern at Coastal Helicopters, Inc. Whether you are joining us for your first helicopter experience or as a seasoned veteran heading back to work in a remote region Coastal Helicopters calls home, our staff is here to make sure you are comfortable from take off to landing. Throughout the year we subject our aircraft, pilots, maintenance and support staff not only to training and inspections required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), but also to independent and internal audits, inspections by the Office of Aircraft Services (OAS) /U.S. Forest Service and are very committed to the Alaska Air Carriers Association’s Medallion Program (providing a level of safety for all passengers above and beyond that required by the FAA).
Restrictions: Passenger names and weights are required by the FAA for weight and balance calculations and flight manifesting. To ensure the comfort of all travelers, passengers weighing weighing 280 pounds (clothed weight) or more must pay an additional $100.00 to secure extra space in the aircraft.
We have a no bag policy in all our aircraft, if you have medical needs that require a carry on, please contact us. All bags brought to base will be stored in the tour office until you return from your flight.
