Hillsboro Aviation is excited to announce the launch of a helicopter tour operation in Sedona, Arizona. The operation, called Hillsboro Aviation – Sedona, offers helicopter tours over Sedona’s most famous landmarks and is one of the only tour operators to partner with the Forest Service to provide employee training on the geological, biological and archaeological history of Sedona.

“We are thrilled about this new business venture in one of the nation’s most breathtaking landscapes,” said Franz Bergtold, Director of Operations at Hillsboro Aviation. “We are continually impressed and humbled by the warm reception we have received from the community and look forward to continued partnerships with the people of Sedona.”
