Chartering a helicopter is quickly becoming a very cost effective way for people who need an alternative mode of transport and require the ability to jump around to various locations on a short span of time. Not only do helicopters offer a level of flexibility that private jets simply do not, they are also a very versatile way to travel. If you are travelling for business, to a sporting event or thinking about the ski slopes, helicopter charter offers the perfect solution.
The first and perhaps most obvious advantage is that helicopters do not need a landing strip; they just need enough space to land, and can put down almost anywhere there is a large enough footprint. Additionally, with helicopter charter, it makes getting to your destination a piece of cake. You can depart from you own backyard, hotel or field and fly direct to your destination, and since helicopters travel in straight lines as the crow flies, you will always beat the traffic, save time on transfers and arrive in comfort and style.
Since helicopters can often reach up to a speed of 170 miles per hour, they are perfect if your business requires you to visit more than one city in a day then helicopter charter would be the ideal choice. It will eliminate the need for overnight stays which can be costly, time consuming and painfully inconvenient. In a world where time equals money and with a helicopter charter flight will save you both.
You may also require the versatility of a helicopter. For example. In a single day you might find yourself needing to be in three very different locations that are hundreds of miles apart. Your are required to be in the city for a breakfast meeting, then on a project site hundreds of miles away to survey progress, and then make another hop to an event later on in the day. You won’t be able to get to all of those places by car, or fixed wing aircraft all in one day. It would be too costly, and impractical. However a helicopter can deliver you and your team to all three destinations in a short period of time that has a landing area large enough to fit a couple of cars.
It also goes without mentioning, you will always depart and arrive in style. First impressions count and can make or break a business deal, so what better way to make an impression than by arriving to that important business meeting by helicopter? It sends a clear message that your time is valuable and you always get the job done right.
