Flight Duration for tours
Duration of tours are approximate from the start of the engine to the time the engine is shut down. Duration may vary depending on flight conditions. We are not going to charge more if the tour takes longer than we expect as you will not get refunded if it is shorter. When you buy a tour, you NOT renting the helicopter by hour, you are buying a sightseeing tour experience.
Lite Flight Helicopters is committed to fly over every sight highlighted for our tours, but our main concern is your safety. The routes for the tours might be changed to ensure safety (traffic controller requests, weather, other aircraft traffic in the area, temporary flight restrictions, etc). We will do our best to keep you informed of any conditions that may alter the route for your flight, but some times these conditions cannot be predicted.
In case of weather preventing the flight to be performed safely, we will reschedule your flight at no additional cost. In case the flight cannot be rescheduled for any reason, the flight will be canceled and a full refund will be issued (including the deposit).
Maximum total passenger weight in the Robinson R44 (4-seater helicopter) is 600lb and 280lb per seat. For larger helicopters, the total passenger weight limit is 1200lb and 300lb per seat. Passengers will be weighted, and if any combination of the weight is over the limits, the full price will be charged and we will not be able to take all the passengers. Please double check the weight provided during your booking to avoid any problems.
