It provides a variety of services such as offshore transport, remote & regional air connectivity, heli-tourism and smart business solutions, making it the most trusted brand in the area of helicopter transport.

This heliport has been completed in 18 months i.e. within the stipulated timeframe. We are working to develop four “heli-hubs” in line with the concept lines of the “Airport-Hubs” and Rohini is the First step into this series. These heli-hubs will be a one-point solution for the helicopter business and will act as a helipad/heliport for public passenger services, MRO facility for helicopter maintenance and also as a skill development centre for training of pilots, AMEs & technicians.
We will provide air connectivity between Delhi and neighbouring cities from Rohini Heliport. Regional connectivity will be fully achieved when we are able to connect at least all capital cities with district headquarters by air, which can be made possible only by combination of smaller planes and helicopters for seamless connectivity.
