P


robably the first thing readers notice about this article’s photos are the paint jobs on Ecocopter’s


H125 helicopters. Much of its artwork is admired on social media for its intriguing and avant-garde style, but the fact is that Ecocopter is intriguing and avant-garde in itself.


Ecocopter is a Chilean company born 15 years ago with the vision of providing a different type of service in its region of the world. Originating with a single helicopter, Ecocopter was a pioneer providing the first EC130B4 in Chile for private use. As changes occurred, especially in the mining sector, Ecocopter began to provide air services to industry. Then after experiencing success, the company purchased an AS350B3. When the aerial sector for industry continued to grow, the next logical step was to buy four helicopters to start Ecocopter’s fleet.


Today Ecocopter has 15 helicopters: 12 H125s (two new ones arrive in September), two EC135s, and one H145. This fleet currently flies missions in external cargo, passenger transport, the mining industry, offshore transport, construction of high-voltage lines, photography and aerial filming, forest firefighting, and EMS. The company has various international certifications such as ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, and BARS (Basic Aviation Risk Standard)-Gold.

Established in Santiago de Chile, Ecocopter also has bases in Puntarenas, Chile, and Lima, Peru. In Puntarenas it serves a long-term contract that began in 2014 for offshore operations, where it flies the EC135 VFR and IFR. Ecocopter opened its Lima offices in 2009 with operations based in Ayacucho, Peru, where in a strategic alliance with Erickson it uses two Skycranes in the Peruvian jungle. It also uses its Peru assets in Chile for firefighting.
