Helisika Helicopters operates a fleet of Squirrel Helicopters, which are one of the most commonly used helicopters in New Zealand and the world, and this is because they are one of the most versatile aircraft on the market.

Originally designed and manufactured by Eurocopter as the as350 (a-star), the squirrel helicopters are now manufactured by Airbus now with the name h125.
