We meet Helicopter Association International (HAI) Covid Clean Standards to protect our customers and staff.
Our proven commitment to health and safety ensures you will be able to enjoy your experience without worry.
Health and Safety are our top priority.
In order to protect customers, staff, and other visitors, Novictor Helicopters of Oahu, Hawaii recently signed a pledge to keep their helicopters and facility clean and sanitized, including between tour flights.
The “COVID Clean” pledge is a product of Helicopter Association International (HAI) and provides a list of steps that companies must agree to do when signing the pledge. These steps include sanitizing the helicopter between flights and conducting a deeper cleaning each night. Cleaning standards are provided by the manufacturer of the helicopter. Additionally, Novictor employees will wear masks and other appropriate personal protective equipment when working with the public, and maintain cleanliness standards in publically accessible areas of the facility.
“Our highest priority is the health and safety of our clients and our staff,” says Novictor CEO and Chief Pilot Nicole Vandelaar. “We accept the standards of the HAI COVID Clean pledge because we want everyone to know that we are taking every possible precaution to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.”
“We don’t take pledges like this lightly,” adds Vandelaar, “with our new cleaning standards and careful screening, we feel strongly that any guest that flies with Novictor will be able to enjoy their experience without worry.”
The HAI COVID Clean Pledge reads:
As a helicopter operator, we affirm that our highest priority is the safety of our customers, our crew, and the public. We are committed to ensuring our passengers are protected in every possible manner. Therefore, we pledge to:
- Meet or exceed any applicable federal, state, or municipal regulation introduced to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.
