A Private company acquires Century Helicopters. Inc of Ft. Collins, CO from Dart Aerospace. Thomas and Tami Kopitnik, owners of TAG Aviation, LLC of Wyoming, have acquired the FAA certified repair station operating as Century Helicopters, Inc, in early September of 2023. The company will continue under the same business name and operate at the same 2 locations: a Ft. Collins, CO heliport (0CO7) and a fixed-wing hangar at the Northern Colorado Regional Airport (KFNL).

Tom and Tami have been involved in rotary wing and fixed wing aircraft leasing and operations for the past 15 years and have had multiple aircraft maintained by Century. Philip Glasgow, the former chief of maintenance and a 20-year Century veteran will remain at Century and serve as the company’s Chief Executive Officer.

Century Helicopters, Inc performs aircraft completions, installation of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) equipment for Law Enforcement, maintenance, repair and overhaul services, and aircraft recovery. Century Helicopters is a Bell Service Center, a Robinson Service Center, a Garmin Distributor, and a certified FAA repair station. Tom and Tami are excited to return Century Helicopters to a “Family owned and operated” business and along with Philip Glasgow, provide personal attention for the best possible customer service experience.

“We have literally entrusted Philip and his team with the lives of our family over the years and look forward to continuing an environment focused on safety and serving our customers with service second to none,” says Tom Kopitnik, President of Century Helicopters, Inc.
