Flying by helicopter helps you save time and adds excitement to your journey, whether you travel for business or leisure. No waiting, no traffic and no hassle. Helicopter hire is the ideal solution for those who need to be in different places on the same day or quickly reach locations hardly accessible in other ways.
Born from the need to ensure the efficiency of its fleet, Hoverfly is an EASA Part 145 and EASA Part M certified maintenance company able to perform basic maintenance operations and to manage the continuing airworthiness of aircrafts belonging to Airbus Helicopters’ family (formerly Eurocopter), Leonardo AW (formerly AgustaWestland) and Robinson.
L' ATO (Approved Training Organisation) Hoverfly offers training courses for the achievement of the Type Rating and instrument flight (IFR).
The courses are divided into a theoretical and a practical part.
Hoverfly is a helicopter maintenance organisation approved in accordance with EASA Part-145, from airframe maintenance to modifications and field maintenance.
Our expertise with Leonardo Fleet is built on years of support and we are uniquely placed to understanding our customers’ requirements, as we possess a global vision over the operating picture.

Maintenance activities are performed at our Headquarters based in Salerno, where we stock lots of different parts ready to be installed or shipper when required in order to save as much time as possible during maintenance services. Additionally, we can deploy Mobile Repair Terms (MRT) to anywhere in Italy.
Hoverfly is provided with a dedicated Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) which satisfies the requirements of EASA Part CAMO regulations.
A proven track experience acquired over the years across the wide range of supported aircrafts, allows our CAMO staff to use intelligent and fully integrated aircraft management Softwares. Further to this, the Continuing Airworthiness Maintenance Exposition (CAME) document provides in depth and detailed information on our processes and how Continuing Airworthiness is assured.
Our committment is to proactively manage your helicopter fleet by understanding your needs and the baseline inspection schedule, as well as recognising maintenance opportunities in the forecast flying programme, so that your helicopter availability will always be optimised.
At Hoverfly, we take safety seriously. That's why we ensure that we meet all the requirements set forth by the European Union Regulation (EU) No. 965/2012 "AIR OPS" before commencing any commercial air transport (CAT) operations with our helicopters.
To do so, we have obtained a Certificate of Air Operator (COA) and, typically, an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) issued under the European Regulation (EC) No. 1008/2008 of September 24, 2008. The COA attests that our airline possesses the professional capacity and organizational structure necessary to ensure the safe operation of our aircraft.
The ENAC issues the COA based on the positive outcome of its assessments to national air operators who demonstrate compliance with the requirements established by the applicable regulations, including the Regulation (EU) No. 965/2012 "AIR OPS".
We encourage our customers to stay informed about the latest updates to the AIR OPS regulation and acceptable methods of compliance by visiting the website of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
As a CAT operator, we are subject to ENAC surveillance of various areas, including infrastructure, manuals, crew training, crew records, aircraft equipment, flight release, transport of dangerous goods, organizational management system, and continuous airworthiness of our aircraft.
At Hoverfly, we are committed to ensuring the highest level of safety for our passengers and crew.
