(They have a second copter, but this is the one usually used)

CareFlite
CF 1 N428CF Harris Fort Worth
CF 2 N429CF Methodist Dallas
CF 3 N419CF Granbury
CF 4 N417CF McKinney
CF 5 N412CF Gainesville
CF 6 N416CF Whitney

These are the ones usually assigned to the respective bases, but they have several more 'spares', which you'll see occasionally if one of the above are down for maintenance.

This is the Desoto Heliport, near Hampton Rd & Danieldale. There are two PHI copters there. A few minutes before this, when I was having luch at a Tex-Mex place on the west side of Hampton, a third PHI helicopter took off and headed northeast. If you note the 'open door' just behind the left side helicopter, there is another one to it's left, hidden by the building, which is where the one launching had been stored. I have also, at times, heard PHI and other operators saying they are stopping at Desoto for fuel.

According to AirNav, maintenance services are available, in addition to fuel.

PHI still lists their "Dallas" site as 901 Main St, the Bank of America 70 story building downtown. If you look at a random sampling of licenses for some of the larger SMR companies, that address comes up a lot for transmit site location. But that's not a helicopter friendly location.

The main building is a fairly good size two-story structure, and looking at the Heliport's web page, they apparently have a good dal of hanger space available. As noted above, there were at least three PHI units at the site the day I was across the road.

N90TX = DPS 101 Dallas // Already listed above without the base
Occasionally, I see other DPS copters other than N90TX operating here in the metro area, but using the same DPS 101 call sign when working with local agencies.

Add N307TC as the 3rd STARFlight helo to N308TC and N309TC; all previous aircract have been sold. Also it appears from monitoring the radios that STARFlight does not currently use the same radio designation on any particular aircraft. The old UH-1H (N832DH-now sold) used to be STARFlight 4.
