Helicopters are often seen as expensive vehicles only the rich & famous can afford to buy & fly but this is not always true. From a $50,000 home-build single-seat kit helicopter to the ultimate luxury helicopter for sale that comes with its own bathroom there is a helicopter on the market to suit every budget.
There are many factors that influence the price of a helicopter including the type of helicopter, how much a new one would cost and what is its history. It can also be influenced by whether there is an abundance or not of a certain helicopter model on the market which creates bidding wars and drives the prices up.
When it comes to buying a new helicopter a few things need to be taken into account including financing, insurance and delivery options. We have compiled a helpful guide to help buyers with this process and if you are ready to buy we can connect you with trusted lenders and insurance providers.
