Minimum numbers and Seating Allocation
All helicopter flights are sold on a per seat , shared basis where you may be placed on a flight with other passengers not included in your booking.

‘Private’ flights are dedicated to your booking only; you will not be placed on a flight with passengers from another booking.

Customers may contact Precision Helicopters to book a private flight if a shared flight is not suitable.

Please note private flights are individually quoted.

Aircraft type & seating positions are allocated on the day of the flight once all passengers have been weighed and checked in.

Seating allocation is based on a weight & balance calculation and at the discretion of the ground crew or pilot in command to ensure the safe carriage of all passengers.

Any refunds will be processed minus applicable booking fee.
