Private Helicopter Aircraft
Popular models include: Sikorsky S-76, Bell 407, Eurocopter 135
Designed for smaller groups of people, helicopters are specifically suited and designed for short haul to medium range flights. There are a wide variety of helicopters and rotorcraft available in a variety of different configurations. While most helicopters are designed for small groups of people, some larger helicopters can accommodate more baggage and passengers than others and/or might include a semi-private lavatory. Due to their high operation costs, helicopters are generally not used for long-range flights but rather for inner city flights or short routes. Most rotorcraft are generally configured in a VIP format to cater to executives and to maximize passenger capacity yet they can also be configured for medical and evac flights, passenger configurations and cargo operations.
