How much do you tip a helicopter pilot?

Recommended Posts

$20 a person is a good tip. If the tour you are doing is private than at least $100 should be given. In any case any tip is good... most people don't tip at all! I even had someone hand me $1 :blink: Call me what you want to but I thanked him for the tip and handed it back to him. I told him apparently he needed it more than I did.

Once had a customer who slipped something (obviously money) into my top pocket after a flight. In Oz, tipping the pilot is not normal, so I was pleasantly surprised to see he had given me $1000 US! Not bad considering the Oz dollar was worth about $0.65 at the time, so I walked away with about $1800 and a big smile.
