We are your best source for adding a Robinson helicopter to your
flight line because we offer ...
We proudly offer Robinson helicopter leases to our clients at the lowest
cost. Additionally, the more you fly, the lower your effective hourly
lease rate. This is achieved through a lease rate structure that consists of
a fixed fee for each hour the helicopter is flown and a nominal fee for each day the helicopter is in your possession. There are other
factors that can further lower your overall lease cost
such as Hobbs Time Savings and Advance Rent Benefits.

our policy not to constrain our clients with minimum flight time requirements.
You fly your leased helicopters as
much or as little as you want. However, the more you fly, the lower your
effective hourly lease rate would be.
All Helicopters are equipped with Hobbs meters
measuring helicopter utilization time as either the total time the engine is running
or as the total time the helicopter is actually flying. Depending on the types of missions a helicopter is used for,
the helicopter sits on the ground for startup, cool-down, passenger (un)loading,
maintenance runs, etc. for about 15% to 50% of its engine running time. Thus, engine running time is
typically about 15% to 50% higher than actual flight time.
Most lessors require that Hobbs meters on leased helicopters measure engine running
time and not actual flight time resulting in significantly higher costs even at
the same lease rate. Capital Helicopters does not require you to have a Hobbs meter measuring engine running time which
may further reduce your total lease cost by up to 50%!
As an option, you may pre-purchase some of your flight time in form of
Advance Rent at
incredibly low rates. The discount you receive is equivalent to getting a
return of about 20% interest on your upfront "investment". You may
pre-purchase any number (up to 400) of hours. To make use of this
risk-free, high-return benefit, all advance rent must be paid within four weeks
of signing the lease agreement. If you had pre-purchased more flight time than
you utilized by the time your lease ends, the remaining Advance Rent balance
will be returned to you together with your security
We are pleased to offer helicopter leases without long-term
commitments and with the most flexible lease cancellation policy. After your
initial one-year lease, the lease automatically renews on a monthly basis until cancelled. To cancel the lease you simply provide a three-month
written notice and return the helicopter at the time the cancellation becomes

A refundable security deposit becomes due at the time you execute the lease agreement.
This deposit will be refunded once you fulfilled all your
contractual obligations at the end of your lease. The amount of the security
deposit is determined on a case-by-case basis but generally is minimal. Return
clients and clients with substantial Advance Rent commitments may not be
required to pay a security deposit.
