Helicopters are expensive beasts due to the high maintenance costs and fuel usage, from a US charter operator:

"Helicopter charter rates are generally between $700-$1000 per flight hour for smaller piston helicopters, $1200-2000 per hour for small turbine machines and $2500+/hr for larger twin-engine corporate helicopters capable of night charter operations."

O.K. You've dragged it outta me-I'm a pilot :shock: I know there's a no-sail zone north of the pier, are there any restrictions on flying near special K's place? Does anyone know what the flying scene/plane ownership situation is in Thailand? Does anyone know the GDP of Venezuela? 2 out of 3 and I'll love you forever :D

There is a complete exclusion zone to the South of the Airport that extends over the water and inland over the Palace. If you go to the Flying School at Hua Hin Airport they will be happy to shown you exactly the extent of it.

If you are serious about flying light aircraft here you will probably need the GDP of Venezuela!
May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil know`s you`re dead!

The Hua Hin area map on the forum here has the exclusion zone: http://www.huahinafterdark.com/hua-hin-area-map.htm I see distances noted but don't know if that's for watercraft, or aircraft as well. Pete :cheers:
