Default helicopter weight limits?

Can anyone tell me if there is a weight limit on the helicopter tours? And how many people will they take at one time? Thanks

Depending on the service you use, but all seem to be at 250 pounds limit. If the person weighs more then you are charged an extra amout and possible double the rate and one less passenger on that flight.

The helos we did on the Mendenhal Glacier sat four passengers. Three in back and one forward.

There are several different helicopter sizes and all charge 1 1/2 for over 250 lbs. Book direct, for vender questions and a look at their fleet, if of importance. ERA is the ship contractor, Northstar Trekking, Coastal, TEMSCO.

We went with Temsco andt hey did have a wieght limit of 250 before an extra charge. And,,in case you lie,,,,they put you on a big old scale so your weight can be seen by everybody ,,,in case you didn't tell the truth on the form!!
