In 2002, former investment banker Javier Diaz founded Wings Air Helicopters. As an experienced pilot he wanted to create a company that would stand above the rest and meet aviation needs for the sheer pleasure and beauty of airborne travel. Wings Air Helicopters was the first helicopter charter company to be based out of Westchester County Airport (KHPN) in White Plains, NY. This unique area just outside of New York City gives us access to metropolitan attractions as well as undiscovered local gems. We are avid advocates of airborne travel, and therefore, flying is not merely an occupation, but a passion of our company. Do you share our passion? If you don’t quite love flying yet, spend some time in our helicopters and see if we can change your mind.


Wings Air Helicopters has been a trend setter in the aviation business since 2002. Our company is committed to customer satisfaction, safety and the highest quality of service. Our helicopter charter fleet includes top-of-the-line charter and training helicopters, currently flying an average of 3,500 hours per year without incident.

We serve our customers by offering:

  • Competitive rates
  • Personalized service
  • Local expertise
  • Helping you think outside the box
  • Getting you the help you need

Our team of experts can assist you with wide a variety of aviation needs–from aerial photography and aerial film production to flight training and scenic tours. Wyvern, a global aviation safety auditing firm, has testified to our high safety standards by approving our company for filming motion pictures and passenger-carrying operations.


At Wings Air Helicopters our passengers’ safety is of the utmost importance. All of our helicopter pilots go through a long and rigorous flight training process to meet FAA and company standards and have thousands of hours of flying experience. Thanks to a highly qualified in-house maintenance team our helicopters are inspected daily to ensure best performance and minimize downtime.

As a helicopter charter company in New York, Wings Air is registered with Wyvern (global aviation safety auditing), Gold rated by ARGUS and is the proud recipient of the Operator Safety Award by Helicopter Association International and National Business Aviation Association
