Combining experience from all aspects of the helicopter industry, Scott Chase and Jim Short founded Essential Flight Operations, LLC. to provide professional helicopter services at highly competitive rates. 

Starting with one Hiller UH-12E, and one cherry drying contract, Essential Flight Operations, LLC. has now expanded into a large/repeat customer base performing various flight missions, and many other jobs from aircraft brokering and exports to helicopter parts sales and aircraft refurbishments.

We take pride in the work we do and will continue to provide cost effective solutions for your helicopter needs, regardless of how big or small the job is.

Rest in Peace, Jim
