Furthermore at Heli Alaska, we understand the costs of Geological Research in Alaska can be prohibitive. As such for our services we have A FLAT HOURLY FEE.

We only charge for flight time

In general with other providers, if the helicopter is in high demand, work will be more expensive.

Weather that is not favorable can make helicopter charter more expensive and necessitate extra resources.

In particular cost can be influenced by the number of personnel required.

In similar fashion, competitors’ costs can vary based on the type of equipment needed.

Of course, the cost can even depend on the location of the works, with remote areas likely more expensive. Again, we only charge for flight time.
