Passenger Information for Altitude Aviation Helicopter Charter Flights


Passenger Information

Altitude Aviation wishes to advise you of the following tips and safety information to avoid any inconveniences prior to or during your charter flight.


It is recommended that passengers arrive at the Airport 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure, especially if the charter itinery is time critical. The flight times indicated on the quote are nil wind and may vary subject to weather conditions.

Passenger/Baggage Weights

Particularly in helicopters, baggage space is usually very limited. If baggage is to be carried on the flight please notify your charter manager of the expected size, weight and number of bags. This will help avoid inconveniences on the day.

Normally individual passenger weights are required to ensure the aircraft is loaded within weight and balance limitations and for fuel planning purposes.

Helicopters, like most aircraft, are generally designed to have a trade off between payload (passengers and freight) able to be carried and fuel. Sometimes a helicopter will not be able to carry its full seat capacity due to fuel requirements and weight limitations. Standard adult passenger weights are 86 kg for males and 74 kg for females. Particularly if heavier than these weights, the flight may have to be limited to fewer passengers.

Fuel Stops

Sometimes the helicopter may have to stop for fuel enroute. This would generally add about 20 minutes to the trip, however is a good opportunity to get out and stretch your legs.

If the helicopter is heavily loaded, more fuel stops may required than if a lighter load was carried.

Helicopter Safety

Safety around helicopters is vitally important, particularly when the main and tail rotor blades are in motion. It is vitally important that you pay particular attention to the flight crew when they are directing you in and out of the helicopter, and when briefing you on the helicopter's safety features and procedures.

Additional Information

Smoking is not permitted on aircraft.

Dangerous goods (such as aerosols, paint, matches, gas stoves, firearms/ammunition etc ) are normally not permitted onboard aircraft and must be declared to your flight crew prior to loading/boarding to ensure the safety of your flight.

For further information, please contact our charter managers who would be more than happy to discuss any issues with you to ensure the safety and efficiency of your charter flight.
