About Panama Air Adventures


Fernando Cardoze, founder, owner and Chief Pilot founded Panama Air Adventures, Inc. after retiring from a successful career as a financial profesional. Fernando is a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) and has more than 26 years and more than 4,000 hours of helicopter flying experience, plus a wealth of knowledge about the history of the Panama Canal and the Republic of Panama. Fernando started flying helicopters as a private pilot at 27 years old (1996).  As his hobby and passion, he flew rental helicopters as often as he could which included most weekends.  He later became a commercial pilot and certified flight instructor in helicopters.  The company’s first helicopter was the R66 and started operating commercially in October of 2016.  The Company has become the leading helicopter company with tourists and with local VIPs for private Charters.  

Our goal is to maintain the business small, with a three helicopter fleet, to ensure the best and safest level of service our clients deserve. Any destination in Panama is within reach of our company's Robinson R44 Raven and R66 Turbine Marine.  You decide where you want to go and we will take you there with your safety and comfort as our number one goal.
