August 18, 2022

Chartering a private helicopter is a perfect way to travel. You can avoid the long security line that comes when flying commercial and get to your destination quickly and more relaxed. Before you book your first helicopter charter, there are a few things to consider. HeliFlite makes it easy by answering some questions you may not have thought of.

What is a private helicopter charter, and how does it work?

A private helicopter charter is an efficient travel solution that allows you to make the most of your time. With a private helicopter charter, you avoid the hassles of commercial air travel – no more delayed flights, long lines through security, or sitting next to unfamiliar travelers. HeliFlite will get you to your final destination quickly and easily. Helicopters have the ability to land at smaller airports/heliports, private estates, or golf courses, so they are great for traveling to destinations that are difficult to reach by other means, making it an exceptional form of transportation for door-to-door service.

When you choose HeliFlite, you’ll speak to a flight coordinator who will collect information about your trip and plan out every detail, so all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

What to consider when booking a flight

When booking a private helicopter flight, there are a few things to consider in order to ensure you have the best experience possible. One of the most important factors is knowing who your operator is and their safety record. You’ll want to ensure your pilots and aircraft are owned by the company you’re chartering from and that your trip is not outsourced. HeliFlite has over 25 years of safe operations and is Wyvern, and ARG/US rated, two of the highest safety auditing firms in the industry. Next is selecting the best helicopter for your needs. HeliFlite offers the largest selection of twin-engine, dual-piloted helicopters on the east coast, each with its own unique features and capabilities.

Another important factor to consider when booking a private helicopter flight is your itinerary. Are you going to need a return trip? On the same day? Or at another time? Will you have golf clubs? Luggage? Or are you just flying in for a quick dinner engagement?  Our team can help you plan every detail of your trip, from selecting the right landing location to arranging ground transportation and more. We can also recommend some great sightseeing destinations, activities, and accommodations to enjoy during your trip.

Finally, be sure to plan ahead and book your flight as early as possible. Contact us today to start planning your next private helicopter flight!

Tips for traveling in a private helicopter

Since helicopters are smaller and more nimble than traditional aircraft, they can get you to your destination much more quickly. Here are a few tips to make your trip as smooth as possible:

  1. Pack – Let us know if you’ll be bringing along six sets of golf bags or just a few guests and your furry friend.
  1. Relax – one of the great things about flying in a helicopter is that you experience a smooth and comfortable ride. When you fly in one of HeliFlite’s executive-style cabins, you’ll be met with finely tailored upholstery and handcrafted cabinetry. Oh, and leave those earplugs behind.  There’s no need for headsets either – you can speak at regular voice levels and make phone calls as you wish.
  1. Enjoy the view! – since all our flights are private, you won’t be vying for a seat by the window or sharing your ride with a stranger. You’ll be able to relax, unwind, and enjoy the views.
