Yesterday we brought you a list of amazing private jets. However, they were pretty expensive, ranging from $25,000,000 to as much as $500,000,000. So chances are, those are a little out of your price range. Today, therefore, we’ve put together of alternatives to commercial airline travel that’s a little more attainable: private helicopters.
Of course, “more attainable” is a relative term. These are still pretty pricey, but they’re all cheaper than any of the jets, so you can at least fantasize about getting one of these if you win the lottery.
In any case, there are advantages disadvantages to going with a private chopper over a private jet. Sure, helicopters aren’t as fast as jets, nor do they the same range. But you look much cooler hopping out of a helicopter than walking out of a jet, and the former can take you places jets cannot—like midtown Manhattan, or a ski resort in the French Alps. So all things being equal, I think I’d rather have a chopper than a jet.
So let’s have a look at some awesome choppers, shall we?
