To ensure the helicopter is loaded within weight and balance limitations and for fuel planning purposes we require your individual passenger weights. Helicopters, like most aircraft, are generally designed to have a trade off between passengers, bags and the amount of fuel we need to carry.
Sometimes a helicopter is unable to carry its full seating capacity due to fuel requirements and weight limitations. Standard adult passenger weights are calculated at 90kg for males and 70kg for females. Particularly if heavier than these weights, the flight may have to be limited to fewer passengers. The max single passenger weight for our Robinson R44 helicopter is 130kg and maximum combined passenger weight of 260kg.
Particularly in our helicopters, baggage space is very limited. If you need to take baggage, please notify us of the expected weight, size and qty of bags. This will help avoid any inconvenience on the day, as we want to make your helicopter flight as easy and convenient as possible.
