Primarily a tour operator, Sundance also provides services to fire fighting, vertical lifts, surveying, and more.

Air Methods Corp., the global leader in air medical transportation, has completed its acquisition of Sundance Helicopters Inc., a helicopter tour operator based in Las Vegas, NV. Sundance is a leader in helicopter tour operations, focusing primarily on Grand Canyon helicopter tours, but also providing helicopter services to support fire fighting, natural resource agency operations, vertical lifts, aerial photography/motion pictures, news gathering, and aerial surveying.

Aaron Todd, the Company's chief executive officer, states, "Air Methods is very pleased to have completed all the necessary steps to close our acquisition of Sundance within our original expectation. We continue to believe that the key aviation adjacencies associated with this acquisition will position us well for success not only in the tour operations market, but also the fire fighting, natural resource agency operations, vertical lifts, aerial photography, news gathering, and aerial surveying helicopter sectors. We look forward to Sundance joining the Air Methods family."
