Texas-based Sky Helicopters has opened new buildings at its Garland/DFW Heliport in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Located a few miles from downtown Dallas, the facility now includes a public terminal and office and a new hangar for up to 40 helicopters. Instructional facilities include a Flyit helicopter simulator, which Sky uses for ab initio, commercial, instrument rating and recurrent training. It has video training rooms and offices for Sky’s flight school, while the terminal includes conference facilities, a pilot lounge and sub-lease office space.

“The new heliport buildings reflect the need for quality, full-service helicopter facilities in the U.S.,” Sky president Kenneth Pyatt told AIN. “We offer a more flexible service than the other public-use heliport in Dallas (atop the convention center). Helicopter owners based here have their own keys, the hangars have toilets, fuel is self-serve–it’s pretty much business as usual, even when the FBO is closed.”
