About Us

Franklin Carson is a pioneer in rotary wing flight and started Carson Helicopters, Inc. on a twenty-five acre farm in Perkasie, Pennsylvania in 1958.

Over the years, the original shed and small, unheated farmhouse grew into a F.A.A. Approved Helicopter Repair Station for the manufacturing, overhaul, and repair of all major model helicopters. Carson’s 81 acre facility now includes a 84,000 sq. ft Hangar, a 60,000 sq. ft Warehouse, an office building, paint shop and heliport.
