Hire a helicopter
PrivateFly offers competitive pricing for private helicopter charter, from accredited helicopter operators.
Helicopters are excellent for short flights; to reach remote destinations (and avoid ground traffic); or for sightseeing. Our team can also help you decide which is best for you - a helicopter or light jet, depending on your route and needs.
Many of our customers also charter helicopters for transfers from airports to ski resorts, hotels, music or cultural events, and sports stadiums. They are a great way to arrive at busy venues and peak times, to avoid traffic jams on the ground.
Operating at lower altitudes than most fixed wing aircraft, helicopters can also be hired for short sightseeing flights over countryside or cities.
