Since 1978 Northwest has provided helicopter services around the world. In the beginning, the company utilized a single Hiller 12E in serving the forest industry in Washington. After working for the company for a year, Brian Reynolds purchased the company in 1985. Over the last 25 years the company has transformed from a single ship operation to the largest helicopter company in the state of Washington. We are a Bell Approved CSF and an MD Service Center providing parts, service, and component overhauls for all models.



Additionally we specialize in the overhaul and refurbishment of the Bell UH-1H helicopter. We have over 20 years of experience with the UH-1H and over 50,000 hours of operational experience and our own UH-1H type certificate. We have rebuilt more than 50 Huey helicopters that have gone to customers all over the world.

You can see details of our new facility on the Heliport page of this site. It took over six years to design and two years to build. The site was planned from day one to be a Heliport. It is the most advanced and modern Helicopter facility in the country. It can have up to 18 helicopters operating simultaneously in day or night operations. On any given day there are nearly 30 helicopters on site either on the landing area or in any one of the hangars. This is truly a helicopters only facility.

Please visit this site often to see all our changes as they occur. We hope you visit our live Heliport Cam . This will allow you to watch helicopters come and go in real time.

Thanks for visiting and watching as we continue to provide the best in helicopter services around the world.



Our new facilities located at the Olympia Airport
