What Do Our Customers Say?

“I own Sweet Helicopters and we operate 3 Airbus EC130s and 1 H125 helicopter. Every one of these aircraft has the HeliSAS autopilot installed. In addition to making it more comfortable on long flights, I find the HeliSAS is one of the best safety upgrades you can ever install in a helicopter. It significantly reduces the pilot’s workload to make it easier to adjust radios, set destinations, etc. If you ever lose visual reference, simply let go of the controls and it will level automatically.  It is truly magic and lifesaving!”   -Chuck Surack, Owner
