Operating Cost reference

Recommended Posts

We are a fixed wing flight school that is seriously considering getting into helicopters. I have seen several documents from Sacusa.com and Robinson helicopters. We are trying to decide if S300Cb or R22 will be better helicopter for operations.


We came up with the following pro/con list.



+ Lower operating cost

+ Lower insurance cost

+ Many helicopter owners to lease from.

- Seat weight limit



+ 3 person operation is possible

+ Possibility of operations outside of instruction.

- Higher DOC.

- higher insurance

- Not that many airframes available.


I would like to hear from other operators that went through the decision process.
