About Us

We are a 100% woman-owned family business

Our Story

Woman owned and family operated, Vortex Helicopter Services is a company built on a passion for flying and aviation safety. We have been part of aviation for over 20 years.

Our family comes from South Africa and all over Europe, which gives us worldly experience within the aviation field. We want to bring this global aviation knowledge and experience to serve our customers the best we can. We take great pleasure in sharing those wonderful moments and experiences with our passengers and students.

Pittsburgh is a city with a rich history, which we call our home now. Its iconic bridges weaving between streets of modern and historic architecture, with the confluence of the three rivers, make the Pittsburgh skyline a unique and timeless sight, one to be admired and enjoyed from the air.
