Emerald Executive Helicopters was founded by three veterans with a dream. A dream to create an experience that raises the bar for vacation activities in Panama City Beach. An experience where each customer is treated as an executive with the best views of the beach, and the most well-trained pilots in the area. This is our dream, and this is who we are.

Scott Sliker, Chief Pilot/ Director of Operations – Scott is a Marine Corps Veteran with 6 years of aviation experience in Arizona, Oregon, Louisiana, and the Emerald Coast of Florida. Scott started his aviation career in Northern Arizona, which led him to fly tours in Oregon before settling on the Emerald Coast. He brings a wealth of logistical experience to the team, which makes him the only choice to be Director of Operations for our company.

Corey Wilcox, Director of Maintenance and Safety / Pilot  – Corey is an Army Veteran with 10 years of aviation maintenance and pilot experience. His experience has taken him to Hawaii, Germany, Afghanistan, Poland, Slovakia, Arizona, North Carolina, and finally the beautiful Emerald Coast. Whether it’s military aircraft or one of our own, Corey’s attention to detail and mechanical knowledge make him the perfect Director of Maintenance.

Dylan Horn, Pilot – Dylan is an Army Veteran with 6 years of aviation experience in Arizona, Las Vegas, Louisiana, Orlando, and the Emerald Coast of Florida. After realizing the massive variance in quality between helicopter operations in Las Vegas and operations along the Emerald Coast, Dylan reached out to Scott and Corey to set up a one-of-a-kind, luxury helicopter experience in Panama City Beach. The rest is history!

Together, Dylan, Scott, and Corey have all teamed up to bring you, our valued customers, the ultimate vacation experience in Panama City Beach. Fly with us and see for yourself why we are a must-see in PCB!

An Emerald Executive Experience will give you a bird’s eye view to:

  1. The waters of the Gulf lapping at the white sand beaches.

  2. Dolphins jumping out of the waves.

  3. Sharks prowling below the surface.

  4. Coral reefs bustling with activity.

All from the comfort of a helicopter soaring 500 feet above it all. It really is the best seat above the beach!

In conclusion, this is just another reason why we’ll be the #1 experience in Panama City Beach for locals and tourists, alike! Make a reservation today, and experience what it means to live life, elevated.
