How much can you carry?

Zil Air helicopters function within very strict weight limitations, and passengers are requested to pay close attention to what these are. Our weight allocation per aircraft caters to both guests and luggage. The number of seats in each aircraft is not the only factor affecting the number of passengers and how much baggage they can take; destination, distance and weather is also taken into account. We do not charge to take on excess weight onto the aircraft as do airlines. If your specific flight surpasses the weight allocation, another helicopter will have to be chartered to transport additional luggage and/or passengers. All cost relating to these arrangements will not be borne by Zil Air.
