Prices per hour
How is the cost of renting a helicopter determined?

Booking a private helicopter has a price usually expressed per hour of flight, and depends on a number of factors:

  • The distance to cover. The longer the flight plan, the higher the cost of charter will logically be to cover fuel and crew costs. The maximum range of a helicopter, for the record, rarely exceeds 1,000 kilometers.
  • The aircraft category. The size of the helicopter depends on both the number of passengers to board and the desired level of comfort on board. From light single-turbine engines to larger civilian transport helicopters, the hourly rate can be multiplied by three.
  • The type of route. The most popular destinations in high season (seaside resorts, winter sports resorts, etc.) generate strong demand, and therefore drive the cost of helicopter rental upwards.

Finally, a significant reduction can be obtained by using an air broker such as Excell’Jets, which puts numerous private operators in competition and offers its customer the most advantageous helicopter rate for the planned route.
