  2. Is a Helicopter Charter Right for You?

    October 25, 2010 by admin


    As President of Connecticut Air Charter, I see many requests for helicopter charter quotes. As you may suspect, chartering a private helicopter is not the cheapest form of transportation.  More times than not, chartering an airplane for the mission at hand is less expensive and more practical.


    I’ll go over the numbers, but let me give you a simple rule that usually applies.  ”Unless you are flying directly into a NYC heliport, chartering a private plane is a better bet.”  The primary NYC heliports are located on East 34th street, West 30th, and downtown Manhattan.  You can’t land a chartered airplane at those locations, so naturally a helicopter is your only option.  But flying to and from anywhere else in the tri state area, your least expensive and most practical option is usually a chartered airplane.


    I arrange helicopter charters and airplane charters.  I have no bias toward either, it’s all about cost and time en route. Let me give you a real world example.


    I spoke with a gentleman recently who asked me to arrange a helicopter charter for him to LaGuardia Airport from New Haven, CT.  He was traveling alone.  There are no helicopter charter operators based in CT, so a helicopter would have to travel from White Plains or NYC to pick him up.  When chartering a private airplane or helicopter, you pay for the “dead leg” portion; the repositioning of the aircraft.


    At $600 per hour for the smallest charter helicopter available in the tri-state area, the total trip cost would be close to $1,000.  Flight time from New haven to LaGuardia is only 30 minutes, but you also pay for the 30 minutes it takes to bring the helicopter to New Haven, plus the return of the helicopter to it’s home airport in New York.  The flight would be on a very comfortable Robinson R-44 that seats four.


    Robinson R44


    The Robinson R44 is comfortable for three people or so but is still considered a light helicopter.  Helicopter charter prices rise dramatically above this level.


    Instead of the scenario above, I suggested a charter airplane based in New Haven.  At $270 per hour, the 30 minute trip to LaGuardia, and 30 minute return trip for the airplane, would yield a total trip cost closer to $600.


    As I mentioned above, I do arrange many helicopter charters.  If you need to get to a NYC heliport from CT or Long Island, the only way to get there is by helicopter, at a cost of approximately $1,000.  And you can’t beat the view along the way.
