Jet Travelers: Enjoy the Benefits Only Helicopters Can Offer

September 05, 2022


Helicopters are extremely versatile aircraft that complete extraordinary missions each day. From elevating executive travel to assisting in search and rescue operations, helicopters make it possible to experience things that no other form of transportation provides.

Helicopters are also expedient forms of private and corporate travel. Jet owners rely on their aircraft for convenient travel to meetings and engagements, saving them time and helping to increase business efficiency. But while fixed-wing aircraft may be essential for cross-country trips, adding a helicopter to corporate or personal flight operations delivers multiple benefits, including:

  • Security and Privacy: Helicopters enable passengers to work and converse in private. This method of travel is ideal for protecting business confidentiality and hosting meetings in a more intimate, relaxed setting.
  • Accessibility to Limited Areas: Jets require runways, which are not always available. With no runway or airport required, helicopters can take off and land quickly, enabling door-to-door transport. Helicopters can also reach many locations that are not accessible with fixed-wing aircraft. Because they do not solely rely on an airport, helicopters can land in backyards, near stadiums or on rooftops.
  • Saves Precious Time and Achieves Goals: Take a lesson from professional NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, who used Bell helicopters to participate in the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 in the same day. He used a Bell 407 to fly from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to his jet, which took him to Concord, North Carolina, where he flew in a Bell 429 from the airport to the Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Having successfully competed in both races, he became the fourth NASCAR driver in history to achieve this feat and proved that important goals can be achieved by using a helicopter when faced with a challenging time frame. In the Indianapolis 500 in 2022, Jerry Perez from The Drive experienced this unique travel experience firsthand:

"After a decade or so of coming to the 500 and other various races at the speedway, I knew there had to be a way to beat the traffic—I just never knew that one day I'd get to explore that option, nor that it would involve co-piloting a Bell helicopter. It's never going to happen for most of us, but the way owning your own helicopter unlocks the world is exactly what those pushing the concept of flying cars are promising. That airborne utopia? I mean, it's already here if you've got the scratch." Jerry Perez, The Drive

  • Save Money by Saving Time: If you travel frequently, either for business or personal reasons, the productivity and cost savings of utilizing a helicopter are worth exploring. Based on how much time you and your colleagues spend on commercial airlines, you will find that purchasing a helicopter can save you money in the long run, not to mention adding the convenience of reaching your destination in about a third of the time.

Whether your needs are business or personal travel, or both, Bell’s products are designed to offer convenience and comfort to every passenger. If you are a private jet owner, the only choice to make now is which Bell helicopter best complements your needs.
