History

Fjällflygarna was established in 1982 by two local pilots. Operations started with a Bell 47 G2 and later a Cessna 185 on floats. The Bell 47 was soon replaced by a Hughes 500 C followed by 500 D and E models. During a short while in 1996 and 1997 a Schweizer 330 was rented by SAAB Helicopter and operated for reindeer mustering. The Cessna 185-activities was retired in 1998. At this time the company operated two Hughes 500. In 2002 Fjälllfygarna purchased a brand new Eurocopter EC 120B, replacing one of the 500s. Year 2006 the last Hughes 500 was sold and replaced by a Bell 206B3. Today the company is administered by one of the founding pilots and his family.

The company added a second Colibri to its existing fleet of one Colibri and two Jet Rangers in August 2014.
