Our Company

Our Company

HELISUR is the largest helicopter operator in Peru. Founded in 1994, the company offers integral passenger and cargo transportation services. The company is daily strengthening its position as the industry leader through demonstrated quality and safety in each of its operation and is, furthermore, certified for the main types of helicopter operations conducted in Peru, even complex aerial ones.

Its current fleet of helicopters includes 19 helicopters, ten Mi-8 MTV and nine of the latest generation of Mi-171 that boast ample operational capacity. For the past 18 years of service, these aircraft have set records in Peruvian commercial aviation, having flown more than 109,000 hours (as of September 2012), transported more than 809,000 passengers, and shipped more than 533,000 tons worth of payload for our clients.

The pilots and flight crews are the very best in Peru’s aviation industry and boast great experience in Mi-helicopters. In addition, they undergo constant training that includes a flight simulation program offered at the company’s Training Center in the installations of its parent company, UTair, in Tyumen, Russia. Along these lines, its pilots are rigorously training on Instrument Flight Rules to earn the corresponding licenses, which will allow HELISUR to fly when visibility conditions are limited through the use of navigational instruments.


We, at HELISUR, are well aware of our clients’ strict quality demands. For that reason, we are making strides towards earning three Integrated Management System certifications, which form the foundation of our Quality Management System.

Since 2010, we have been ISO 9001:2008 certified and are in the process of obtaining two other certifications: ISO 14000 Environmental Management and ISO 18000 that represents our steadfast culture of respect for OHSAS – occupational health and safety management.


Since June 2008, HELISUR has been part of the UTair Group, the world’s largest helicopter operator that boasts a fleet of more than 300 vessels in different countries. Since we have coverage of this type, our goal is to become the region’s leader in both integral air operations and MI helicopter maintenance and repair


Since 2011, HELISUR has been the Technical and Commercial Representative of Reductor-PM on account of the fact that our Primary Maintenance Base satisfactorily meets the strictest quality and ongoing improvement requirements of our services. Since becoming its representative, our maintenance capacities have increased, and now we will be able to provide support and maintenance to Mi-8 helicopter gearboxes throughout the region

Reductor-PM is the manufacturer and largest overhauler of the main gearboxes for Mi-8 helicopters (Mi-8, Mi-8MTV-1, Mi-8AMT, and Mi-171) and is the only business in the world authorized to extend their useful life.
