Our MD500E Helicopter can actually seat 4 passengers, however we will only allow 4 passengers when it’s one group making the booking for all 4 seats (and if one passenger is 60kg or less). Note: 4th middle seat (60kg< passenger) is between the pilot and the front right passenger – it has a slightly restricted view over the aircraft console. Groups of one, two or three can also book a “Private Flight” by purchasing all seats at a discounted rate with NO requirement for one passenger to be less than 60kg).
