Robinson R44 & R66
The popular four-seat Robinson R44 is a high-performing, reliable, and easily maintained helicopter that is able to provide a fantastic operating cost. The R66 adds a turbine engine to the airframe for a smoother ride, more power, and added reliability. For aerial surveys, short range charters and tours, light lifts or agricultural work, these helicopters are difficult to beat.
Airbus AS350 "A-Star"
The multipurpose, single-engine AS350 B2 has an outstanding proven track record, ability to seat up to six passengers, and an attractive operating cost. Its flexibility has made it a very sought-after helicopter capable of performing a wide range of missions including passenger charters, aerial surveys, light external lifts, fire fighting, aerial filming, law enforcement and more.
Bell 206 JetRanger
The Bell 206 JetRanger is probably the most recognizable helicopter on the planet and it is ideally suited for tours, utility missions, aerial surveys, corporate transport, and executive helicopter charters. With its wide variety of configurations, this airframe is the most common helicopter in the Pennsylvania sky.
Bell UH-1 Huey
The Bell UH-1 Iroquois, commonly known as the "Huey," is a multipurpose utility helicopter famous for its use during the Vietnam War. With hundreds being refitted for use in the civilian world, it has become a workhorse for heavy external lifts, fire fighting, and construction missions.
Offering a four bladed rotor and a powerful turbine engine, the Bell 407 is one of the most popular helicopters in the Philadelphia Helicopter Charters arsenal. It serves a wide range of purposes including executive charters, heavy external lifts, aerial surveys and filming, fire fighting, and more.
The Kaman K-MAX has intermeshing rotors that has a maximum payload of 6000 pounds, which is more than its empty weight. This makes the K-MAX synchrocopter the most powerful lifting helicopter in its class. Philadelphia Helicopter Charters uses the K-Max for more heavy lift and construction jobs than any other helicopter as the price per pound of lift power is unbeatable on jobs between 4000 and 6000 pounds.
The AgustaWestland AW109 is a lightweight, twin-engine, eight-seat multi-purpose helicopter that is perfect for large charter groups who expect a higher-standard of luxury.
MD Helicopters MD 500
The MD Helicopters MD 500 series is a family of light utility helicopters that offer a great price point for aerial surveys, news gathering, police work, and transmission line repair.
Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk
With a significant number of Black Hawks being converted for civilian use, this powerful helicopter is filling an important role for heavy external lifts and firefighting.
fixed wing aircraft
Helicopters aren't all we do! Many missions are better served by using a private jet or turboprop aircraft. These aircraft are constantly being repositioned all over the United States but we keep track of their locations in order to give you the most options possible. Ask your dedicated aviation expert if a fixed wing airplane might be a more cost effective and comfortable solution for your charter.
Pacific Aerospace PAC P-750 XSTOL
One of our most exciting turboprop aircraft is the P-750 which has an amazingly short take-off and landing distance making it able to get to airports that many other aircraft cannot access. It is easily configurable for a wide range of purposes such as skydiving, passenger charters, aerial surveys, agricultural spraying and more.
Cessna Citation Jets
The Cessna Citation family of jets is, without a doubt, the most popular series of private jets in the world and is our most popular recommendation for medium to long range charters. Whether you book one for business or pleasure, you won't be disappointed with the experience of flying out of Philadelphia in a Citation.
Beechcraft Super King Air
The Super King Air is the most successful turboprop airplane of all time. It comfortably seats 8 persons and can access airports with shorter runways.
The Learjet comfortably seats 8 or more persons, has high altitude flight capacity, and is very fast. This family of private jets is very popular for longer charter flights.
The Gulfstream family of private jets are possibly the most sought after for sheer luxury and, depending on the model, can be configured for as many as 11 to 18 passengers.
