Now that you’ve decided to buy a helicopter, it’s time to find a one that works for you. But that decision is heavily dependent on the intended purpose of the purchase. It can be either for personal use, commercial purposes, or both. But due to the high maintenance cost, it is always a good idea to purchase one that can double as a private helicopter and an air taxi.
This work of art is probably the most loved chopper of all time. It’s relatively cheap to maintain and carries anywhere between one and three passengers. The R44 has one engine and is the most robust and lightweight chopper for millionaires on a budget.
The EC120 is another single-engine helicopter that is ideal for short hops. It carries one to four passengers, and you can also get leather seats on this one to spice things up a bit. So, it’s a good option if you intend to rent out the chopper.
The EC130 carries up to six passengers comfortably and has a single engine. It is ideal for long and short hops and comes with a luxury interior. So if you are looking for an option that can double as a toy and commercial helicopter, this is it.
