Availability and total annual usage are the main considerations when addressing this question. The average corporate helicopter should fly from 150 to 400 hours per year. Anything less than this and the Annual Fixed Costs make the hourly rate very expensive. You should consider chartering with a reputable operator. Much more than 400 hours per year will reduce the availability if there is more than one owner.
For individuals that cannot justify the cost of buying an entire aircraft, but demand the quality and convenience of helicopter travel, purchasing a share with one or two partners is the answer.
