Why Charter a Helicopter?

Executive helicopters have a significant advantage in their ability to take off and land from locations closer to your destination.

With so many types of private jets at your disposal through us, why might someone opt for a helicopter instead?

The main reason is convenience. Helicopters are particularly useful for short or medium-distance flights, especially when you are in a hurry and want to avoid traffic on the ground. Chartering a helicopter also gives you a lot of flexibility - helicopters can take off from and land at locations closer to your destination. They are smaller so you will find them more appropriate for landing in heavily populated areas such as inside city centers. Your private helicopter can land in a field, on private property if permitted, and on a helipad atop a hotel, office tower, or other building.

Because of that, helicopter rentals are very popular among flyers who want to land near special events such as parties, concerts, and sports games. Also, a private helicopter is often hired for special family occasions such as a wedding or simply for the experience of a helicopter tour. The latter may appeal especially to those who are after aerial photography and panoramic views.

Check out the helicopter section of our aircraft page, which details all the types of private jets and other aircraft we have. Other helicopter models include the AW109 Grand New, which has a range of 432 nautical miles and rents for around 3300 USD per hour; the Sikorsky S-76, with a range of 404 nautical miles, rents for 4700 USD per hour; and the Eurocopter AS-365-N3 Dauphin, with a range of 428 nautical miles which can be rented for around 2500 USD per hour.

Depending on the helicopter’s size, they are also equipped to handle flight types other than private personal transport. These include cargo missions and medical evacuation flights.

Popular Private Helicopter Flights

  • Boston to New York

    Boston is about 217 miles from New York City, which makes this a perfect route to take in a private helicopter such as the Sikorski S76 Plus. And, of course, New York offers no shortage of activities and other fun things to do. Your helicopter rental can land at an airport or on a helipad on 34th Street, and then we can arrange ground transportation to take you to a food festival, Yankees game, film premiere, or Broadway production. Whatever you’re up to in the Big Apple, you can rely on Paramount to get you there efficiently and in the ultimate style.

  • San Francisco to Los Angeles

    San Francisco and Los Angeles are among the most populous cities in the United States so no wonder we arrange a lot of helicopter flights between them. Maybe you want to spend a few days in San Francisco before heading down south. While there, check out the City by the Bay’s numerous tourist attractions, such as Bay cruises, haunted tours, whale-watching expeditions, or Golden Gate Bridge photo opportunities. Then, take a Eurocopter EC-155 helicopter the 383-mile distance to Los Angeles, where you’ll be greeted with an entirely new world of fun and exciting things to do. These include Hollywood and Beverly Hills bus tours, Universal Studios Hollywood, and the famous sands of Venice Beach.

  • Miami to Key West

    The final most popular private helicopter route on this list is Miami to Key West, which is a short hop of only 165 miles. You might fill your time in Miami with activities such as taking a speedboat tour of the coast, visiting Jungle Island eco-adventure park, or checking out Miami Beach. Then, after hopping aboard a Bell 222 and landing in Key West, you can spend some time at the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum or take a bicycle tour of Old Town Key West.
