Pegasus Air Services is a private aviation company which maintains commercial standards. The company was founded by Jerome B. de Faria.
For several years, Jerome had the ambitions to start his own helicopter operation and in 2011 he started Pegasus Air Services. He started providing services to individuals and businesses with one R44 helicopter. Very soon Pegasus Air Services would require his own hangar space and commercial certification.
United Aviation Services started its certification and its commercial operation at Pegasus Air Services who now facilitates a fleet of one Bk-117, one Piper Chieftain, three Cessna 206's and three Robinson R44's used for all purposes. Pegasus Air Services is build on these commercial standards as they partnered with United Aviation Services since may 2014. This allows Pegasus Air Services to participate in all commercial operations.

Jerome de Faria|
Accountable Manager / Pilot / Instructor
"My greatest joy with these helicopters is that we get to do the most awesome work. We get to fly these super mechanics to the jungle to keep the generators running in the villages. We take them to the most remote mines to keep heavy equipment going. We take technicians to the most remote places to build telecom towers and keep them online. We fly with these super paramedics and get people out of harms way and we help to find people that are lost in the jungle or at sea. We help to survey all new territory and see all new frontiers. We get it done! While doing this, we see our forest, mountains and rapids and sometimes..... I get to fish on spots where no one has gone before."
