History

The company was founded in 1954 by the mountain-aviator Gunnar Andersson. At first operations were solely by seaplanes. The company also ran cabins in the mountains for mainly fishing tourists and grouse hunters. Later these were sold off and the rotor wing aircraft took over entirely. Andersson died in a plane crash in 1974. Later his daughter Siw A. Grinde took over as CEO in 1981 and ran the company until his grand-daughter Sara Grinde took over as CEO in 2007. The company is still fully family owned in the third generation.
