I am also disappointed when I see some of the Mexican horseback riding excursions where they put the 260+ person on a horse that shouldn't handle that weight. They will tell you that the breed can handle these heavy people but that is a load of horse dung. They are just going for the money and could care less about the animal.
You know I had not even thought of the helicopter ride weighins. Your caution about clothes and boots as another weight factor is an excellent input. This warning could save people a lot of heartache and lightening up of their wallets.
