Carson Helicopters began on a twenty-five-acre farm in Perkasie, Pennsylvania in 1958 and has grown to an F.A.A. Approved Helicopter Repair Station for the maintenance, repair, and overhaul of Sikorsky Helicopters. Additionally, Carson designs and manufactures aircraft parts, including main and tail rotorblades. Carson’s 81-acre facility now includes an 84,000 sq. ft Hangar, a 60,000 sq. ft. Manufacturing Facility, an office building, paint shop and heliport.

During its life Carson’s business model has evolved to reflect the ever-changing advancements and opportunities in the helicopter industry. Its longevity is based on being a step ahead of the competition, which takes knowledge, insight and creativity, as well as the monetary means to continually move forward.

Over the years, Carson has worked with various banks and has learned the importance of choosing a bank and, more importantly, a banker who understands innovation and loyalty. The team at Carson found those attributes in Chris McDermott, who has become a banker and trusted friend.

Any business understands that money is a tool; without it, you can’t proceed to the next step. Over 20 years ago, I met Chris McDermott, who has never failed to provide the financial tools to ensure that we continue taking the next step forward,” said Franklin Carson
