New York’s Helicopter Flight Services (HFS) has joined the Tour Operators Program of Safety (TOPS, Booth No. 4015). HFS operates as HeliNY from the downtown Wall Street Heliport. The operator flies a Bell 406 and recently took delivery of three new 407GXs equipped with the Garmin 1000H avionics suite. HFS began service in 1986.

TOPS was founded in 1996 to enhance various aspects of air tour and charter operations conducted under Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. Each TOPS member must be reviewed by a TOPS member mentor and then pass an annual safety audit that confirms it meets or exceeds the organization’s safety standards.
