Worst sightseeing helicopter company in the area! Owner Stanley Stan Lee just crashed a few months back and two passengers got seriously injured, and Stan lost his ear in the accident. Stay away! Shady place to go to and maintenance is definitely kept at the minimum when you see the place.

When I worked with him the first time, I was sketched out, when I had to follow a dirt road just to get where the helicopter was parked. I was expecting a professional aviation company would be located at an airport? A little research helped to figure out, that Stan had issues with people at the airport, and already two previous accidents, which put a bad light on the Sarasota Airport. So, he just decided to put up a scetchy garage in the woods, to stay under the radar.

I'm honestly surprised the FAA didn't shut that place down after the most recent accident in 2019, which nearly killed him and his passengers. Luckily, there were people with boats rescuing them out of the water. The result was a lost ear and totalled aircraft. I was terrified to death when I saw how he flies the aircraft out of that backyard.

Low-level "cowboy" style to impress me and other customers. When you go that close over the water, that a wave literally took the helicopter off the sky, and resulted in a crash, you can imagine how low you have to be. Is this a "safe" way of providing sightseeing tours in the Sarasota area? People have no idea in what risk they put themselves. So stay away!!
