Charter flights and helicopter tours offer the chance to rent a helicopter for visiting places inaccessible by regular air routes. In this blog, I’ll delve into the various types of charter flights and helicopter tours available in Colombia.

Types of Charter Flights by Helicopter

The types of helicopter charter flights are:

Private Charter Flights

These are flights for a small group with a personalized itinerary. You can choose the destination, schedule, duration, and helicopter type to suit your needs, whether for leisure, business, or family trips.

The maximum number of passengers and the aircraft’s range depend on the helicopter’s size and model, typically accommodating between 4 and 8 passengers and covering distances of 186 to 372 miles, respectively.

Group Charter Flights

These flights cater to larger groups with a more standardized itinerary. While offering various destination and schedule options, they provide less flexibility compared to private charter flights, ideal for incentive trips, events, or tourism.

The maximum number of passengers and the aircraft’s range depend on the helicopter’s size and model, typically accommodating between 8 and 16 passengers and covering distances of 186 to 372 miles, respectively.

Cargo Charter Flights

These flights transport oversized or heavy goods unsuitable for other means of transportation, ideal for industrial projects, construction, or humanitarian aid.

The maximum cargo weight and aircraft range depend on the helicopter’s size and model, typically ranging between 1,102 and 8,818 pounds and covering distances of 186 to 372 miles, respectively.

Emergency Charter Flights

These flights evacuate people or goods during emergencies like natural disasters, armed conflicts, or accidents. Available anytime, the charter company or broker coordinates rescue operations.

The maximum number of passengers or cargo weight and aircraft range depend on the helicopter’s size and model, typically accommodating between 4 and 8 people or carrying between 1,102 and 8,818 pounds of cargo and covering distances of 186 to 372 miles, respectively.

Types of Helicopter Tours

Helicopter tours offer aerial views of attractions with a tour guide, audio commentary, or photography service. You can choose from several tour options, depending on the destination, the duration and the activity you want to do. Options include:

Touristic Tours

Explore landmarks such as cities, monuments, landscapes, or natural parks. Tours last between 15 and 60 minutes, with destinations like the Bogotá savanna offering scenic views of Chía, the Andes Hippodrome, and the Puente del Común.

Sporting Tours

Experience extreme sports like skydiving or skiing, lasting between 1 and 4 hours, depending on the sport, difficulty and location.

Business Tours

Visit companies or events from the helicopter, lasting between 1 and 4 hours, depending on the visit and location. You can choose between different options for visits, such as fairs, exhibitions, conferences or meetings in Colombia, and take advantage of the time and comfort of the flight.
