The Right Helicopter for the Job

The Schweizer 300C is an excellent helicopter appropriate for many applications. If your job requires different equipment we also have access to and can supply the Bell 206 Jet Ranger, Robinson R-44 or Bell 47.

At Point of View Helicopter Services we are pleased to offer reduced rates for uses that fit our point of view-namely environmental and social justice causes that are helping to make the world a better place and possibly even save it. It is our desire to make the unique perspectives and uses gained from a helicopter available to non-profit communities that might benefit, but could not normally afford it.

Also---thanks for ...
As a wildlife biologist and photo interpreter of 27 years, I, find it very efficient to use a helicopter in groundtruthing emergent aquatic vegetation as well as any other vegetation that has been interpreted on aerial photography. Ed Friedman, pilot for Point of View Helicopter Services, saved me considerable time with vegetation identification on Merrymeeting Bay. Lyman Feero James W. Sewall...
Dear Ed, I want to send you a big Thanks for being so generous and kind to my brother, Jon. He is the most special person in my life, and I could not think of a more wonderful gift for his 60th birthday than sending him up into the sky to look down on beauty, and then return safely to the heart of our family. He had a great time, he tells me. Today I am heading over to his place to take a look...
