Helicopter Cargo Charter FAQs

Whether chartering a plane or a helicopter is the better choice for your cargo delivery depends on your specific consignment requirements.

By providing us with your project details, Evolution Time Critical can analyse both delivery modes to see which is the best solution for you, balancing the costs and timeline to meet your budget. Get in touch today.

Whether chartering a plane or a helicopter is the better choice for your cargo delivery depends on your specific consignment requirements.

Typically, a cargo helicopter does not have the range that a plane can offer. Where helicopters offer advantages is the rapid delivery of orders where a local landing is required. Helicopters are not limited to airports for landing, meaning they can generally land much closer to a consignment’s destination point.

By providing us with your project details, Evolution Time Critical can analyse both delivery modes to see which is the best solution for you, balancing the costs and risks to propose a bespoke, timely logistics solution.

The cost of chartering a cargo helicopter depends on a number of factors:

  • The consignment’s size and chargeable weight.
  • The type of commodity, for example dangerous goods or hazardous materials which incur additional fees.
  • The consignment’s origin and destination locations, and the distance between the two: the distance from the collection point to the nearest available airport.
  • The availability of aircraft, which varies from day to day and the amount of notice given.

Evolution Time Critical will work with you to identify the best delivery mode, based on your budget. Get in touch with our logistics experts today.

There are restrictions on the delivery of dangerous goods, which must be properly packed, marked and labeled. By providing the UN number, class number and packing instructions of your consignment, Evolution Time Critical can advise whether chartering a helicopter is possible, so get in touch.

Dangerous goods include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Lithium/alkaline batteries
  • Biohazards & biochemical products, including medical waste
  • Aerosols & compressed gasses
  • Flammable products, such as paint or alcohol
  • Magnets & magnetic substances
  • Explosives (fireworks)

Further information on the transportation of dangerous or hazardous goods can be found here.

The types of consignments that can be chartered via a helicopter are typically limited to goods that can fit on the seats or goods that can be safely secured in the passenger hold.  Some aircraft have the option quickly remove seats to accommodate a large number of boxes. 

Evolution Time Critical will work with you to identify the best delivery mode based on your consignment details, determining whether a fixed wing aircraft may be more appropriate. Get in touch with our logistics experts today and we will propose the best solution for you.

Evolution Time Critical has a global network to enable helicopter deliveries. Helicopters can take off and land just about anywhere that has a flat surface of 100 sq ft. meaning they are the perfect solution to circumvent infrastructure / traffic congestion issues for small shipments under 350 miles.

We recognise that any supply chain delays are critical, so we aim to provide you with a range of delivery details within 15-30 minutes of your call.

Evolution Time Critical will work with you to understand your project requirements and make recommendations that best suit your needs, project urgency and budget.

Once you have provided our experts with the basic details of your consignment – the size, weight, deadline, origin and destination locations – we will assess the market to identify the helicopter size and carrier that meets your requirements, as well as the availability of helicopter landing safes.

We then propose a bespoke door-to-door solution that covers the costs and risks for the delivery, in advance of the job.
