Baggage capacity can only be specified when several other factors including the combined weight of each passenger, the type of helicopter chartered and the headcount are specified before confirming the flight.
How much luggage can I carry on a helicopter charter?
Light Piston Engines like the Robinson R22 are perfect for solo travelers with baggage limited to spending half a week at the glittering seaside town of Mykonos. The R22 has under-seat storage for 2 duffel bags, at most. The combined weight of the pilot, passenger, and fuel should not exceed 176 kgs. For Light Turbines and up, space for golfing equipment is a common client request.
The Bell 206B Jet Ranger is frequently employed as a business jet with the accommodation of 4 passengers besides the pilot. The baggage can not be more than 1.5 ft tall owing to its storage compartment dimensions. The Eurocopter Squirrel can hold 2,900 pounds as a combination of the total weight of the pilot, passengers, and the empty weight of the helicopter. It has a small rear storage compartment with 2 larger side ones. Optionally, an additional cargo pod can be manually adjusted if needed.
Maxing off at carrying a total of approximately 5000 pounds, the twin-engine Eurocopter 155 comes with enough space to host up to 4 medical stretchers. The storage area is accessible through the two sides of the helicopter. They are commonly used for VVIP client transportation who prefer luxury and safety together.
