BUSINESS STRATEGY AND MANAGEMENT


Since their beginning, the Kostner brothers have expanded their team. They now have five pilots, two technicians, and three other workers who help with a bit of everything but mainly take care of the operator’s two maintenance trucks that follow the helicopters and provide them with fuel and other necessities. This allows a helicopter to fly as long as 10 hours straight. The employees are basically treated like family, and some of them actually are. Two of the pilots are nephews, and Gabriel is hoping they will continue flying for Elikos in the


future, even when he and Marco are no longer with the company.


The helicopter fleet features two Airbus AS350 B3s, an H125, and one Airbus AS350 BA, which is not owned by the brothers but can be used when an additional helicopter is needed.


“We do not want to expand the company,” Gabriel says. “We want to leave it like this and make it good and successful; our vision isn’t just to grow and make


more money. Our idea is that the world needs a lot of small, local companies, because clients really know you and trust you. It is not only a money thing; it is so much more. It is about the business and about our clients. In 30 years, I have often seen big companies wanting everything and growing rapidly, but they also quickly lost control of the situation and lost their clients. You can’t have everything. The one thing I still would like to achieve is building a bigger helipad and a nicer and more cozy lounge for our guests.”
