Make sure that the company you choose has a valid approval for the job you request.

Air taxi / Scenic flights
Commercial air transports require a valid JAR-OPS 3 / EASA OPS Air Operator Certificate (AOC). The company will also need an Operating License (OL) if the flight is going to be other than local. The Swedish Transport Agency has online lists of valid OLs (click here and here).

Aerial works
Pure aerial works companies do not need the approvals mentioned above - they can operate with a national aerial work permit (LFS 2007:49). All valid aerial work permits are found here.

Copterflyg (retired)
Copterflyg was a diversified helicopter company that operates through large parts of Sweden. The company transitioned into STORM Heliworks in early 2016, however the aerial work segment remained within Copterflyg for some time.

HistoryCopterflyg was mainly focused in air-taxi, utility works and power line inspections, but it was also engaged in power line sawing operations and airborne census tasks.

The company was established back in 2004, and it was soon split in two branches - division north and division south. The northern division operated a Jet Ranger (SE-JML). The southern division was focused in mast mounting operations, sightseeing tours and power line inspections.

The mast mounting operation ceased after one of the leading persons in division south perished in a helicopter accident in 2006.

The Jet Ranger branch was cancelled in 2010 as the helicopter was transferred to HeliAir Sweden, and eventually HeliNord Norden.

The southern division was maintained as the new Copterflyg, and it grew to operate in large parts of southern Sweden, with bases in Gothenburg, Västerås and Nässjö.

In 2012 Copterflyg expanded by adding aerial filming and sawing operations to its line of business by incorporating an AS355 (SE-JOC) in its fleet. The company did also establish a new base in Sjöbo with a newly imported R44 ("Skånehelikoptern") the same year. Adding to that, forest cleansing operations were introduced and an Hughes 500 (SE-JNL) joined the fleet.

In June 2013, Copterflyg was acquired by Heliholding AB of Östersund. Copterflyg became a sister company to the sales company STORM Heliworks, and came to operate parts of STORM's services.

The company added two EC 120 Colibris to its fleet in the autumn of 2013. One of them replaced the Hughes 500 as a sawing helicopter. At that time, the company was involved in a temporary power-line cleansing operation in Latvia. One of the Colibris (SE-JMP) was later returned to its leasing owner.

Copterflyg/STORM won a large power-line cleansing contract in late 2015, and subsequently added a second EC120 (SE-JDT) to its fleet again.

In January 2016 Copterflyg's sister company, STORM Heliworks, was restructured into an operative company. The two companies were fusioned and the jobs and helicopters in Copterflyg were gradually inherited by STORM.

The name Copterflyg was kept for the aerial work segment for some time due to administrative reasons.
