About National Helicopter Services Limited

About Us

For over two (2) decades, National Helicopter Services Limited has ensured that our oil and gas industry has been able to get its people to where they need to be – and back. We are committed to continuing this proud tradition and to becoming the premier partner for a wide range of helicopter services wherever we go – whenever you need us.



National Helicopter Services Ltd. is committed to SAFETY being our key watchword in all our operations.


National Helicopter Services Limited is in the process of upgrading its fleet, increasing its fleet capacity and increased usage of state-of-the-art helicopter technology in an effort to be poised for increasing demands in the oil & gas sector and expansion opportunities regionally.

NHSL currently operates six (6) helicopters for commercial use i.e. six (6) medium twins and provides maintenance support for the National Security Operations Centre (NSOC) which operates two (2) medium twins and two (2) light twins. 

NHSL operates from its main base at Camden, Couva and owns the Foreshore Helipad at Mucurapo, for the main purpose of facilitating medical evacuations (MEDEVACS).  Apart from these, the only other approved passenger pick up points are the Piarco International Airport and the Arthur Napoleon Raymond (A.N.R.) Robinson International Airport in Tobago.

Helicopter Transportation Services provided to support the following:

  1. Offshore Oil and Gas production.
  2. Offshore drilling and seismic surveys.
  3. Services to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, offshore Search And Rescue (SAR),  24/7 emergency medical transfer (Medevac) mostly between Tobago and Trinidad, and V.I.P. transportation.
  4. Ad hoc local use (mainly for photography surveys and sightseeing).

The Company is the only local operator that can provide a product mix of a medium twin and light twin helicopters. This mix is enhanced by the Company’s ownership and ‘rights of access’ to multiple operating bases and ‟pick up” points. Service delivery is conducted within an environment which continually withstands the scrutiny of the local aviation regulatory body; and independent international auditors, who act as agents of current and prospective customers.

Our pricing model is basically driven by cost; but is structured and tailored to the individual customer, based on the service mix required. Overall our prices are competitive and in-keeping with industry standards.



National Helicopter Services Limited is the leader in the provision of transportation to and from offshore oil and gas platforms.  The service we provide is highly regulated, and we operate under very strict safety standards in the industry.  This is imperative as we venture further out into deep and ultra-deep gas fields in varying weather conditions.

As more deep water blocks are made available for exploration by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, the number of energy sector companies entering the market has increased. This will directly affect our passenger throughput as our client base increases for the number of persons being transported to and from offshore platforms.  As such, we strive to provide a quality service for our existing as well prospective clients.



To provide first class helicopter transportation, maintenance and training services.
