   Our History   

Elicompany was founded in 1979 by its current CEO Calisto “Mario” Forghieri, a professional pilot, who wanted to nurture his passion for helicopters and make his experience available to customers. He started with flights to help the farmers in the intensive Padana valley agriculture industry.
Then added a flight school and, in the mid 90’s, started passenger charters and surveillance flights over vital infrastructures of the Country, like oil and power lines. Today, Elicompany is one of the market leading on-shore helicopter charter companies in Italy. We registered in excess of 4,000 hours of flight time last year and we are expecting to register over 4,500 during this current year
