Frequently asked questions

Flight safety reasons require passenger identification before departing the aircraft. Therefore, please carry your passport or your identifications card with you.

The passengers must be sure that their luggage is in line with the specifications of each helicopter. The helicopters have limited luggage storage. 

Sometimes there is space to put the luggage but not weight available. The maximum take-off weight of each helicopter is very specific. This is the pilot’s responsibility. So, when you are asked for your weight or the weight and size of your baggage be sure that this is for the safety of the flight. To ensure this, please contact before the flight with our sales department, to get informed about the luggage limit.

Any infant under two (2) years of age is very welcome to fly on the lap of an adult secured by an infant seat-belt extension. Any child over two (2) years of age requires his own seat.

Pets are allowed in flight, but they should be accompanied by valid health and vaccination certificates. Throughout the duration of the flight they should be at a specially arranged place for them. Please contact our sales department before the flight, in case you plan to have your pet with you.

For helicopter flights the pilot and operator are solitarily responsible for selecting the area to be used as a landing spot, judging whether the area is situated out of inhabited areas or not, complying to the helicopter’s dimensions and performance restrictions during landing at and take off and of course in respect to the safety of the flight as well as the protection of persons and properties on the ground.

You can use your phone, laptop send and receive SMS. You can do whatever you want to enjoy and share the amazing feeling of the helicopter flight. Unless of course you are otherwise advised by the pilot.

Depending on the helicopter there is no problem if a passenger doesn’t wear the headphones. It is up to the pilot. This practice is not recommended though as it is a safety issue taking into consideration that only through the headphones the pilot can advise the passengers in case of an emergency.

Helicopters are not maintained like cars. There is a specific maintenance program for each individual helicopter based on every hour not to say minute of operation. Components are checked and changed accordingly. All this is done by certified organizations with very high standards. This is why when you need a helicopter flight you should rent ONLY from helicopter companies that hold an AOC (Air Operators Certificate). In respect to the above be sure that a helicopter is always as new. Of course, newer helicopters have more advanced systems.

You should arrive at your departure general aviation facility normally  thirty (30) minutes prior to departure.

If your flight is cancelled due to  weather conditions and there is no need for you to reschedule the flight, the charter price paid for your trip will be refunded.

One of our flight planners will work with you to narrow down a plan that fits your schedule, your budget, and your ideas. We’ll ask you questions about what you’d like to do, and we’ll make suggestions. Once you’ve decided on a plan, we’ll put together a written offer and e-mail it to you for your approval. Your flight goes on our schedule as soon as you confirm the reservation with a credit card or wire transfer.
During our flight planning, we will also gather information that the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) requires we collect, including your name, your birth date, and how much you and your bags weight.

All trips quoted are one way unless otherwise indicated. A request to board for the return trip depends on availability. Additional charges may apply.
The confirmation of your flight by e-mail or by filling and signature of the credit card authorization form or wire transfer of funds for purchasing the services quoted, assumes acceptance of the Carrier our terms and conditions.

Landing off-airport is one of the benefits of helicopter transport, but there are several factors that determine whether we can fulfill a customer request for direct-to-destination services. Our first consideration is always safety.

Even if the landing zone has been approved, the Pilot may decide that current conditions aren’t conducive to safety. The Pilot always retains the right to refuse an off-airport at any time up to the actual landing, in which case the flight will continue to the alternate airport. The client will be responsible for ground transportation except if otherwise agreed.

Off-airport landing zone

The criteria that determine the usability of an off-airport landing zone:

  • The minimum area must be at least 50ft x 50ft.
  • The zone must have minimal slope and terrain variations.
  • There must be a safe approach zone that can accommodate variable wind conditions and a go-around.
  • The zone must be free of trees, obstructions, buildings, vehicles, people, or livestock.
  • If the area is larger than 100ft x 100ft with no obstructions, good approach access (for variable winds) and has good pedestrian/vehicle separation from the landing zone, it is almost always usable.
