Being a passenger in a helicopter is a thrilling experience. In addition to the excitement, a helicopter charter can turn a long car ride through traffic into a short, smooth trip through the air. To make sure that your helicopter charter goes smoothly, read through the following helicopter charter safety tips.
Keep Your Personal Belongings Secure
It can be a bit breezy when you’re riding in a helicopter, so be sure to keep your belongings secure. A lightweight item can easy fly away as you approach or exit a helicopter too, so plan ahead. For your own safety, never chase an item that blows away.
Listen to the Pilot
Before you take off on your next helicopter charter, the pilot will give you an overview of some important helicopter safety tips. He or she will tell you how to safely enter and exit the helicopter and how to fasten your seatbelt. The pilot will also show you how to fasten your seatbelt, and will supply you with a noise-cancelling headset that will allow you to communicate with the pilot and fellow passengers.
Know the Helicopter’s Safety Zones
Though there will be personnel available to assist you when boarding the helicopter, you should still know how to approach a helicopter safely. Always stay in the pilot’s line of sight by approaching from the front. This way the pilot will see you, and you will have a good idea of whether the helicopter is about to turn or not. As your helicopter pilot will tell you, it’s best to approach the chopper from the front left or the front right. It is not safe to stand or walk behind a helicopter.
