Remember: If you want to make a little money in aviation, you have to start with a lot. save £20-30 per hour on your personal flying but get hit by £10,000 cost of an AD).

He’s offering visitors and locals three different aerial tours — 30 minutes, 45 minutes and one hour — featuring varied views of coastline and valley beauty as far east as Carpinteria and west as Gaviota.He also recently brought on flight instructor Charles Aaron to teach hopeful helicopter pilots and to split tour-guide duties.“I’m pretty passionate about growing this company.” Nancarrow is in the process of obtaining a special certificate to offer on-demand, aerial taxi service in the coming months, and hopes to eventually bring more (and bigger) helicopters into his fleet further down the line.Until then, he and Aaron will continue taking tourists to the skies — a venture they expect will pick up this summer.— Noozhawk staff writer Gina Potthoff can be reached at Our professional journalists work tirelessly to report on local news so you can be more informed and engaged in your community.This quality, local reporting is free for you to read and share, but it's not free to produce.In addition to tours, Nanco Helicopters offers aerial services to the local agriculture industry, photographers and videographers, and for pipeline or power line patrols.“I felt this was a market for a smaller helicopter,” Nancarrow said.
