Frequently Asked Questions

Is a helicopter a safe mode of transportation?

- Yes, there are many myths and misunderstandings about helicopters, but the bottom line is they are safe.  The FAA and Robinson helicopter have gotten together to assure the competence of pilots operating the R44 helicopter.  And although we often fly much lower to the ground, our landing area is so much smaller, that if you ask many duel rated pilot they will tell you they’d rather be in a helicopter than a plane in an emergency.  Our helicopter is maintained by only FAA certified mechanics and is inspected every 50 hrs to assure its safe and effective transportation of its occupants.


What kind of events can I schedule the helicopter for?

-  We have done everything from birthdays, to toys for tots, to skydiving events.  If you can think of it, odds are, we can do it.  Give us a call with something creative so we can add it to the list.


Can the helicopter land anywhere?

-  Although the helicopter is very versatile, it cannot land anywhere.  Private property must give us permission and the parks agencies can sometimes restrict access.  However, due to the power of the R44 there are very few places we can’t physically land the helicopter in NY and VT.
