Our Mission and History
SKY Helicopters started with the high school dreams of Andrew Westlund, the CEO of SKY Helicopters. His passion was helicopters and his plan was simply to fly. After graduating, life took a more corporate turn and several years later, he had a successful network of businesses under his Westlund Group name.
SKY was established in 2011 with a marriage of both his passion for helicopters and entrepreneurship. The goal was to bring both a new experience to his clients within the Westlund Group as well as to the tourism industry. The team started small—just two pilots and two helicopters. Today, the fleet has grown to six helicopters and a team of twelve, with continued expansion on the horizon.Photo: Heath Moffatt / www.heathmoffattphoto.com
