In the 14th century, the Blessed Athanasios of Meteora founded the first monastic community here in the monastery of the Great Meteoron. Other monks followed from other corners of Greece, creating a total of 20 monasteries.

EC 135 • SX-HSM
Airbus H135 lightweight twin-engine helicopter remains top of its class with its distinct combination of optimum performance levels and highly attractive features.

It offers extended mission capability even in the most demanding environments. No trade-off has been made between safety and performance.

Airbus H135 passengers also enjoy an exceptionally fast and smooth ride. The high set main rotor and the shrouded tail rotor enhance in-flight and on-ground safety.

The large side sliding doors enable passengers to easily board and disembark. In addition, the helicopter’s rear clamshell doors facilitate simple luggage storage.

The H135 offers excellent external visibility during flight — passengers can sit back and soak up the extraordinary view.

With its low sound and vibration levels, the atmosphere is both pleasant and restful for passengers and crew.

EC 120 • SX-HVA
The Airbus H120 is a light single-engine helicopter which can carry up to 4 passengers in addition to the pilot.

The design of the cabin/luggage hold assembly makes it particularly suitable for widely different types of civilian and para public missions.

The first helicopter in its class (1.6 ton) to comply with the requirements of the new JAR 27 regulations, the "Colibri" is fitted with crash-resistant fuel system, pilot and passenger seats.

Very silent (6.6 dB below the ICAO limit) and with a very wide cabin featuring excellent visibility, the Colibri’s flight comfort is unique in its category.

What are the latest restrictions on electronic devices?
You can carry electronic cigarettes including e-cigars and other personal vaporizers containing batteries, for personal use, in your carry-on baggage only. It is prohibited to include electronic cigarettes in checked baggage.

Recharging of these devices and/or batteries on board the aircraft is not permitted and you must take measures to prevent accidental activation. Spare batteries must be individually protected to prevent short circuits by placing them in the original retail packaging or by otherwise insulating terminals by taping over exposed terminals or placing each battery in a separate plastic bag or protective pouch and carried in carry-on baggage only.

In addition lithium batteries are subject to the following conditions:
Each installed or spare battery must not exceed:


1) For lithium metal or lithium alloy batteries, a lithium content of not more than 2 g or

2) For lithium ion batteries, a watt-hour rating of not more than 100Wh.

According to the latest safety regulations in most airports worldwide and for security reasons, Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 can neither be carried on your personal hand luggage in the passenger cabin, nor in a suitcase in the luggage compartment, as it is considered a hazardous material.
What should I consider for Off Airport Landings?
Landing off-airport is one of the benefits of helicopter transport, but there are several factors that determine whether we can fulfill a customer request for direct-to-destination services. Our first consideration is always safety.

Helicopter company requires 1 working day to accommodate an off-airport landing request, if the zone has not been pre-approved. That gives us time to thoroughly investigate the landing zone and secure the necessary permissions.

An off-airport destination must always have a pre-assigned alternate airport. Even if the landing zone has been approved, the Pilot-in-Command (PIC) may decide that current conditions aren’t conducive to safety. The PIC always retains the right to refuse an off-airport at any time up to the actual landing, in which case the flight will continue to the alternate airport. The client will be responsible for ground transportation if the PIC chooses to land at the alternate airport for safety reasons.

Off-airport landing zone

Here are the criteria that determine the usability of an off-airport landing zone:

*The minimum area must be at least 50ft x 50ft. There are no exceptions.
*The zone must have minimal slope and terrain variations.
*There must be a safe approach zone that can accommodate variable wind conditions and a go-around.
*The zone must be free of trees, light posts, obstructions, bushes, high grass, fences, buildings, vehicles, people, or livestock.
There must be a method of restricting pedestrian access to the zone during landing and departure operations.
If the area is larger than 150ft x 150ft with no obstructions, good approach access (for variable winds) and has good pedestrian/vehicle separation from the landing zone, it is almost always usable.
Are there any Flight Restrictions that I have to consider?
All our Helicopter companies providers are European Air Carrier certificated by the EASA. Carriage within Greece is subject to the EC Regulation 2027/97, as amended by EC Regulation No 889/2002, as well as to the rules and limitations of the Greek Code of Air Law (Law 1815/88), where applicable.

The following items should not be placed in checked baggage, but should always be carried with you: medicines, jewellery, cash, insurance policies, securities, contracts, official papers, deeds, samples and in general any valuables, fragile items and electronic devices (laptops, video cameras, chargers, etc.).
