No matter your shot, whether you are a videographer or a photographer, we have a helicopter to fit your need. We operate a Schweizer 300C and a Robinson R44 Raven II, each having its own strengths.
Price………………………..$415 Per Hour
The Schweizer 300C is an exceptional aircraft at an exceptional value. Its three bladed main rotor and large engine give this helicopter a much smoother ride and much larger payload then the Robinson R22. In fact, the 300C is designed to accommodate up to two passengers and the pilot sitting side-by-side with a maximum load of 950 pounds. This increased performance equates into a safer, more maneuverable photo flight.
This helicopter is perfect for local flights inside of 20 miles which require only one passenger. This optimizes the usefulness of this aircraft, being it cruises at 70 knots and leaves plenty of room for extra equipment.
Robinson R44 Raven II
Price………………………..$695 Per Hour
The Robinson R44 Raven II can carry three passengers and a pilot with a maximum useful load of about 994 pounds. This helicopter cruises faster than the Schweizer 300C clipping along at 100 knots and has a main rotor positioned on a mast well above the cockpit keeping it out of valuable shots. These attributes make this helicopter perfect for those flights requiring more than one passenger or a fairy distances over 20 miles.
The generous size of the cockpit allows for two passengers besides the pilot, while still leaving plenty of room for extra gear and equipment. Even with all of this in this aircraft, the R44 is still able to cruise at over 100 knots making it a more economical choice when you have to fairy more than 20 miles.
The Discovery Flight is geared to those who are looking at earning their helicopter pilot license. During this incredible and challenging experience, you will be given the chance to fly the helicopter in both a hover and forward flight. Beyond this, you will experience the incredible view the helicopter pilot experiences almost every day.
