What time can I fly ?

How long can I book a helicopter tour?

Helitour company offers exciting helicopter air travel – sightseeing tours over Kiev, a tour to Chernobyl and Pripyat, as well as charter flights to different regions of Ukraine. To use the flight service, you need to determine the date and time of departure, and then place a preliminary application on the company’s website, specifying your contact details. Customers choose the flight time based on their personal capabilities and necessity, but additional coordination will be required to avoid overlaps (for example, this flight has already been booked for the same time by another customer).

Helitour Company offers flight services in any season of the year, accepting applications every day from 8.00 to 20.00. But it must be borne in mind that there are rules that should be followed when choosing the departure time and duration of the trip in order to comply with the safety standards of passengers on board.

Departure and walking time, taking into account seasonal factors

Passenger flights are made during the daytime – the helicopter must land before dark. Therefore, it is necessary to book a walk taking into account its duration and the duration of daylight in a particular season of the year. When ordering a helicopter rental for the purpose of making a long excursion (for example, a tour to Chernobyl and Pripyat is lasting  110 minutes), in case the flight time does not meet the specified requirements, the client will be offered an alternative option.

Also, passenger flights are not carried out in bad weather conditions, which make it difficult to control the helicopter and worsen visibility. Cloudy weather or light rain, as a rule, are not an obstacle. The company may cancel a flight booked for the period specified by the client for reasons of non-compliance with weather conditions under which it is possible to make safe passenger flights prescribed in regulatory documents – in cases of storms, thunderstorms, hurricane winds, heavy snowfall, fog, low clouds.

In cases where the weather or the occurrence of force majeure circumstances suggests that it is impossible to make a flight at the time specified by the client, Helitour will notify the customer in advance, as well as offer to postpone the trip to another date or time.

Strict punctuality

Having booked a helicopter for a specific time, the customer must arrive at the launch site within the specified time, without delay. The company cannot violate the departure and landing schedule, in addition, you will also need to be instructed about the rules of conduct and safety on board. Therefore, the time that was lost due to the client’s fault is automatically deducted from the duration of the trip.

There are often situations when customers want to join a group. Helitour helicopters assume a minimum of three passengers. If the customer wants to share the rental of a helicopter for an excursion with other fellow travelers, you need to contact the managers of Helitour, who will try to include the client in the group. In this case, you will have to put up with the proposed time and date, since coordination is carried out with all potential passengers of a particular flight and preference is given to the requirements of their predominant number. Needless to say, in this case, the client bears additional responsibility for being late, risking letting down a whole group of people.

It is also necessary to take into account that if circumstances do not allow the customer who booked the helicopter to take off within the agreed time, it is necessary to notify the dispatcher of the company two days before the appointed date with the possibility of rescheduling the trip to another day.
