Helicopters are environmentally friendly due to their fuel-efficient designs. Many copters are quiet with no risk of drowning out the party celebrations with aggravating noise. Additional features include air conditioning and heating, top-of-the-line, noise-canceling headsets and huge windows.
For quick five to ten minute helicopter rides, the Robinson series of choppers is ideal for smaller groups. The R-22 has room for one plus a pilot. The R-44, a little roomier than the R-22, can accommodate up to three passengers plus the pilot. If the group going up is a family affair, a Robinson R66 Turbine can comfortably seat a family of four.
Larger groups will enjoy flying in one of the Eurocopter-series helicopters. The Eurocopter Twin Star (AS355N) comfortably seats five people plus the pilot, while the Eurocopter AStar (AS350BA) can handle up to six people and the pilot. This whirlybird also cruises nicely at 100 knots.
For weather considerations, know this - pilots don’t fly in bad weather! All the pilots constantly monitor weather conditions and will advise you well in advance if adverse conditions are prohibiting event helicopter rides.
