History[edit]

Hesnes Air was established in 1992 and was granted operating permission from the CAA the same year. As a helicopter company with a Airbus Helicopter H125 (formerly Eurocopter AS 350 B3) Hesnes Air took on missions including long-line of flight, photo flights, cargo flights, predator monitoring, line monitoring, air taxi and passenger transport for private and business purposes across the country.

The company expanded its operations in 2006 acquiring its first aircraft, a Beechcraft B200C King Air. This aircraft was used for freight charters and ambulance missions, including donor flights all over Europe. The company expanded its operations again in 2007 with their second plane, a Cessna Citation Encore. In 2012 the company acquired an additional Cessna Citation Encore, and again in 2015 the fleet was expanded with a Cessna Citation Bravo and a second Airbus Helicopter H125 (formerly Eurocopter AS 350).
