Business travel by helicopter is often faster and more economical

For executives, business-owners and corporate flight departments, resources as it relates to both time and budget are paramount. The Greater Chicago area is home to several Fortune 500 companies with flight departments and the below example conveys a common itinerary. In the below example and in the case study available for download, it becomes clear that in many cases, a helicopter provides the most economical and quickest (as it relates to time capital) travel solution. Whether traveling from jobsite to jobsite, meeting to meeting, facility to facility or otherwise, the helicopter is an important tool for the corporate flight department.


Investments matter

Fixed-winged aircraft can rack up more than $6,000 in operating costs per hour. A helicopter can drastically cut down your acquisition and operating costs by nearly 75%. With the price of gas rising around the globe, a helicopter can become the most efficient way to travel, especially in major cities like Chicago or Detroit.
