Rules & regulations


Nordicrotors.com (“Nordic Rotors”) is a Swedish website aimed to provide an objective view of the regional helicopter business in a comprehensive way.


Any visitor may request that any type of content should be changed. All change requests will be validated manually by the Nordic Rotors crew. The validation time may vary depending on the size of the current backlog and/or other circumstances. For our convenience we will not state a fixed time.

In general, do not request to change a page unless you are certain that the information you are providing is within the boundaries of these rules & regulations and that your requested change will not, in any way accuse or offend anyone.


We like unique and spectacular photos! We encourage anyone with a decent photo of a helicopter to upload it. Preferably Nordic helicopters, but everything goes.

We will validate the photo based on these criteria:

  • Is the photo similar to other photos of the same registration?
  • Is it unique?
  • Any special events?


Each Photographer has the copyright for his or her own photo(s). The uploader of a photo is solely responsible that the copyright belongs to him or her and not to anyone else. All material published on Nordic Rotors are protected by Swedish law (49 a §, the Swedish copyright legislation). If you wish to use photos for other purposes than for private use, always contact the photographer using the "contact" function.

Unless otherwise stated the copyright belongs solely to Nordic Rotors which is owned by Rickard Gillberg and Mattias Axelsson.

Nordic Rotors may use your photo in advertising purposes (e.g using your photo on our website to advertise for a vacancy) or use your photo in social media in the purpose of branding Nordic Rotors. If you explicit do not want this you need to inform us.

Advertising Policy

We only accept helicopter related advertisements. If you wish to receive more information about advertisement possibilities at our website, please contact us.

It is currently not allowed to advertise in photos or in a wiki-page.

Privacy Policy

If you decide to edit a wiki page or upload a photo your IP address will be stored together with your name and e-mail address. The e-mail address you provide will be hidden from everyone except for Nordic Rotors staff, thus it cannot be seen by robots looking for addresses to send spam to.

Nordic Rotors will not use any information provided by you for commercial purposes, or distribute it to any third parties. We will not use your IP address other than in the case of misuse of our site.

On May 25th 2018, the new Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enters into force. GDPR replaces the Personal Information Act (PUL) and aims to protect all our personal data against unauthorized use.

Nordic Rotors handles all data containing personal information according to applicable law. If the user wants to delete their data Nordic Rotors should be contacted.
