Lahak Aviation has been providing offshore crew transportation throughout the Mediterranean since 2010. Through a joint venture with PHI, Inc., one of the world’s leading helicopter service companies, we provide the appropriate helicopters to transport your crew safely and efficiently. With helicopters and crews based in Haifa and Tel Aviv, we are in the heart of everything while being close to the sea. We provide offshore transportation to many companies in the oil and gas industry.
Currently, Lahak Aviation operates a fleet of twin-engine helicopters on a 24/7 basis – specializing in Air Medical, VIP/Corporate, and Utility transport missions. We also operate a fleet of Sikorsky S76 C++’s in support of major offshore projects.
We strive to provide the best on-time performance, the best dispatch and communications, the best pilots and the best experience for our clients.

We focus on experience and safety when selecting our pilots. Our pilots have thousands of hours of experience of PIC (Pilot-In-Command) time and offshore experience. Every year, they are sent to Lafayette, Louisiana in the United States for a rigorous training at PHI, Inc’s award-winning program. Our pilots understand the importance of on-time performance and keep safety as a top priority in every flight.
