Available Air Crafts:

Squirrel  

The Squirrel  is  a single-engine light helicopter  in service around the world , operated by private individuals, airline and charter operators, tour operators, emergency medical teams, governments and law enforcement agencies. Comparing to the Jet Ranger , it fits 1 or 2 extra passengers, so it is a bit larger, with wider windows and air conditioner. Prices on this aircraft for panoramic flights are a bit higher as it consumes more fuel and has higher costs for maintenance.

Jet Ranger

The Jet Ranger  is  a single-engine light helicopter  in service around the world, operated by private individuals, airline and charter operators, tour operators, emergency medical teams, governments and law enforcement agencies. Comparing to the Squirrel , if fits 4 ,5 or 6 passengers, so it is a bit smaller in size, with no  air conditioner. Because of its smaller size, it consumes less fuel and therefore, the flight prices are also a bit cheaper than the Squirrel. Windows are slightly smaller then the squirrel but wide enough to see the views and take great pictures.

Robinson R – 44 and Robinson R – 66

Single-engine light helicopters, smaller than the jet ranger and the squirrel, designed for transportation of reporters and journalists doing air coverage, businessmen and tourists. They fit 3 and 4 passengers and one pilot. They can fly up to 4000 meters at a maximum speed of 220 mk/h. They are 12 meters long and despite of the smaller size, it is quite comfortable inside.

Flights are private and if a customer is  late and misses the schedule, he or she will loose the deposit paid, which will be held to cover our expenses with the helicopter sitting at the helipad.

No partial refund will be given in this case.
