Jämtlands Flyg (retired)
Jämtlands Flyg had its roots in the 1954 company Jämtlands Aero (1) and derived out of Jämtlands Flyg & Fiske, which was established in Östersund in the mid-80s and started helicopter operations in 1992. The company offered a wide range of operations throughout Scandinavia, and particularly the mountainous regions of Sweden and Norway. Jämtlands Flyg was specialized in wildlife care, tourism and aerial works such as sling load operations, water sampling and various inspections.

During the last years in operation, Jämtlands Flyg operated out of two bases – Östersund-Göviken heliport and Funäsdalen. The company was operating a large fleet of Eurocopter and Robinson helicopters of various sizes.

Background Jämtlands Flyg was a remnant of the company Jämtlands Aero (1), which was founded by the legendary pioneer Gunnar 'Spökis' Andersson in 1954. The company started helicopter operations in 1962, and gradually sold off all their fixed wing aircraft. After Spökis lost his life in an accident in December 1974 his wife Dagmar took over the company. Jämtlands Aero was kept in its leading position, offering everything from flight training to taxi flights and fishing camps for a decade before it was purchased by Sterner Aero AB.

Spökis' daughter Siw and her husband Ulf Grinde continued flight operations with their own company. As the helicopter and ambulance operation was sold to Sterner Aero mainly sea planes and fishing camps remained. The project took off by the name Jämtlands Flyg & Fiske AB in the mid-80s, after a short time helicopters came back into operation and it rapidly grew to become one of the leading operators in the region. In the mid-90s the fishing camps and seaplanes were sold off and the name shortened to Jämtlands Flyg AB. From now on the company operates a fleet of just helicopters.

The company opened a helicopter base in Hemavan/Tärnaby (Laisholm) in 2007.

In December 2007 Spökis' granddaughter Sara Grinde took over as CEO from mother Siw A. Grinde.

In January 2011 Jämtlands Flyg was awarded the honourable title Royal Warrant Holder (Kunglig Hovleverantör) by His Majesty The King. The label is appointed to an exclusive amount of purveyors to the Royal Court of Sweden.

Jämtlands Flyg is a subsidiary of Spökis AB.

The company opened a summer shuttle route between Hemavan and Ammarnäs in 2014. The route was originally trafficked by Lapplandsflyg, but the company was retired in 2012.

In April 2015 Jämtlands Flyg announced that it had decided to close its helicopter base in Tärnaby in order to focus on its main operations in Jämtland County. The local base manager in Tärnaby was to launch a new helicopter service in the region. At the same time, CEO Sara Grinde announced that the company planned to establish a new field base at Åre Ski Resort in the summer of 2015.

In July 2016 Jämtlands Flyg opened a partnership with the flight school Scandinavian Helicopter Center. Several R44s belonging to Helicenter were added to Jämtlands Flyg's fleet in order to facilitate commercial operations.

In January 2018 Jämtlands Flyg added the very first twin-engine helicopter to its fleet. The luxurious AW109S Grand SE-JTA joined the company from the helicopter's main base in Stockholm. The aircraft left Jämtlands Flyg's fleet in favour for Industriflyg in the autumn of 2018.

In February 2019 Jämtlands Flyg announced that the company was to close down its operations in mid March the same year. The company declared that the controlled closure was due to decreasing profitability and stricter regulations.

The company had one AS350 (SE-JGZ), two EC120s (SE-JHZ & SE-JLZ), and two R44s (SE-JJZ & SE-JLM) when it closed its operations.
