Industry entrepreneur couple had a vision to create a company that would provide a true VIP-level
experience not previously offered in the helicopter industry. In December of 1995, they did just that by
launching Maverick Helicopters® in the tourism capital of the world, Las Vegas — a destination known for
high rollers and over-the-top service. Their mission was to provide the finest level of service as expected
by the VIP guests of the resorts and hotels in the City of Entertainment. Their efforts have been realized with
the support of many, including past guests, the hospitality industry and dedicated team members.
The Las Vegas operation started modestly with one aircraft and a committed team of flight personnel.
Today, 22 years later, Maverick Helicopters operates the largest and most modern, state-of-the-art fleet
of 47 ECO-Star helicopters in the world. Maverick Helicopters has grown exponentially over
the past several years to include five bases of operation: Las Vegas Strip (McCarran International Airport),
Henderson Executive Airport, Grand Canyon South Rim, Grand Canyon West Rim, and Maui, Hawaii.
In addition to the helicopter operations,
was formed in
2008 and currently operates six fixed-winged aircraft to the Grand Canyon and is available for charter flights.
In 2009, Mustang Helicopters
launched to provide flights departing from the Henderson Executive Airport to the Grand Canyon.
In 2015, Maverick Helicopters opened its first location outside of the Southwest United States.
Maverick's Maui, Hawaii terminal
became the 5th permanent location for the Maverick Aviation Group.
Maverick Helicopters' excursions are a world apart from the competition, because Maverick Helicopters refuses
to operate in the formula used by the competition. Maverick Helicopters' pilots personally greet every
passenger and give a flight orientation prior to boarding. Each flight is designed to be as interactive as possible
between the pilot and the guests. Using voice-activated headsets, passengers experience personal narration (in English)
by the pilot, or a pre-recorded narration in their native language. Maverick was founded on the principle of providing
the best experience possible.
Maverick Helicopters' Grand Canyon
flights depart conveniently from its
headquarters located on the Las Vegas Strip. No other tour operator lands as far or as deep into the West Rim of
the Grand Canyon as Maverick Helicopters. The array of specialty tours from Las Vegas is exceptional. Fly over
Mount Charleston to the Pahrump Valley for a winery tour and dinner or take a round-trip race-day flight to the
NASCAR events at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Wedding flight options include an exclusive landing spot deep within the Grand Canyon, the fabulous red rock
formations of the Valley of Fire or the sparkling lights of the Las Vegas Strip.
Maverick Helicopters' commitment to excellence in service is only matched by its commitment to safety.
The company's safety record is among the best in the world. The owner, a former pilot, knows
the importance of maintenance quality and is hands on in defining Maverick’s operational safety
standards to exceed industry standards. Furthermore, Maverick Helicopters has received the Federal
Aviation Administration’s (FAA) most prestigious honor for maintenance, the Award of Excellence
"Diamond Award." This achievement signifies the company’s ongoing dedication to maintenance
training and aircraft safety.
Maverick Helicopters has received an array of travel industry accolades and is the only company in the
world to be named twice to the Travel Channel's
"Top 10 Best Helicopter
Thrills in the World."
Maverick Helicopters has been involved with numerous filming projects including
the Travel Channel, Fox, Golf Channel, NBC, ABC, CBS, E!, Food Network, Discovery Channel and DreamWorks. Maverick
has been awarded the "Best of Las Vegas" award by the Las Vegas Review Journal, the "Best of Nevada" award by Nevada
Magazine and was also awarded the prestigious Southern Nevada Hotel Concierge Association’s "Best Tour Company" award
for the 7th consecutive year.
VIP service, the finest equipment and pilots, the highest safety standards and unique excursions make Maverick
Helicopters the industry leader.
