We grew and changed with the market

Flight Trails expanded its business in Arizona to include a full avionics and radio shop to support installation of upgraded avionics packages into both fixed wing and helicopters.

We know the ins and outs of Fixed Wing AIRCraft and Helicopters

The difference, in one word, is our experience. 

Since 1974 - We've built our reputation on excellence in service and repair on fixed winged Rotary Aircraft and Helicopters, with a constant focus on serving our customers.

Flight Trails was formed in 1974 as an aviation company with a full service operation and commercial flight operation. The company originally operated out of Palomar Airport just north of San Diego, California.​

 In 1981 a subsidiary, Flight Trails Helicopters, Inc., was established with the primary purpose of supporting helicopter customization for the Hughes Helicopter Corporation. FTH became the world wide “go to” expert on all Hughes 300 and 500 series products. FTH also became a service center for Hughes and supported all after market requirements for parts and overhauls of dynamic components. The Hughes Corporation sold its 300-line product to Schweitzer Helicopter and the line was moved to Elmira, New York. The Hughes Corporation sold the remainder of its helicopter operation to McDonnell Douglas Corporation, which moved the operation from California to Mesa, Arizona. FTH made the decision to also relocate its operation from California to Arizona to better support the completion process. Over 90 percent of the MD product line in operation today has been worked on by Flight Trails.
