Are you sick and tired of traffic, slow downs along your route, and not being able to make it home on time? At Michigan Helicopters we are a FAA licensed part 135 operator which ensures a SAFE timely departure and arrival. Statistically, air travel is much safer than ground travel.  No waiting around and no costly delays…we fly on your schedule!

Flexibility of point-to-point travel : Private helicopter charters offer a level of flexibility not commonly found with fixed wing aircraft. 

The advantages of flying point-to-point are often invaluable. The versatility of helicopters means that they can be used for business purposes or for transfers from airports to ski resorts, events or sports stadiums, which is why they are often referred to as a 'helicopter taxi'.
We have free parking on site and can shuttle you to Detroit Metro Airport in 15 minutes from Waterford. 

Our helicopters are intelligently designed and highly adaptable to address a range of individual requirements. We can access remote areas and city centers, with the ability to land at helipads, hotels and even private properties (where space allows) making them one of the most flexible and suitable aircraft types for travel to remote, crowded or otherwise difficult to reach destinations.
