Frequently Asked Questions

How fast does a helicopter travel?
The official world speed record for a helicopter is 400.87 km/h (249.09 mph) and was set in England on August 11th 1986 in Westland Lynx. For helicopters available to charter the cruising speeds are a little slower than this! The fastest of them cruise at about 170mph, covering the distance from London to Manchester in just 50 minutes. The average speed of a helicopter is around 130 to 140 mph, plenty fast enough when you consider there are no traffic jams and we travel as the crow flies.
How high does a helicopter fly?
Most trips that are flown in helicopters are relatively short, so the fuel and time saving efficiencies that are gained by flying higher are cancelled out by the time it takes to get to that altitude. Helicopters will usually cruise at around 1500ft, or 460m, above the ground.
How far can I fly in a helicopter?
Helicopters can usually carry 2.5 to 3 hours of fuel. How far they can travel on this depends on their speed but the faster machines can travel over 450 miles, the distance from London to Inverness. This distance can, however, be limited by the number of passengers to be carried. Helicopters have a maximum total weight that can be carried so more passengers means less fuel.
Is it much harder to fly a helicopter than a plane?
Aeroplanes are, by their nature, stable. Helicopters are not. So the short answer is yes, as any first time student will happily tell you after their first attempt to hover!
Can a helicopter fly in the rain?
Yes, they can, there are no problems with flying in the rain. The only potential issue that rain can cause is a lack of visibility. If the clouds are low, or the rain suffiently heavy, then the pilot may not be able to see where he is going.
What happens if the engine stops?
Helicopters, just like aeroplanes, can glide in the event of engine failure. In a helicopter this is called auto-rotating and the advantage over a plane is that you only need a short space to land the helicopter in.
How do I become a helicopter pilot?
You do not need to learn how to fly an aeroplane before you can learn to fly a helicopter. In order to fly by yourself, or with friends and family, you will need to gain a Private Pilot’s License, or PPL. This will involve a course of study at an approved training school, 60-80 hours of flying and a number of exams. If you want to fly as a career you will need to undertake a further 120 hours of flying and sit another set of exams to gain your Commercial Pilot’s License, CPL.
