We operate Robinson helicopters that have a maximum seat limitation of 135kg (297lbs), passengers in excess of this weight will be required to fly in the Eurocopter helicopter and may incur additional cost subject to the number of passengers travelling.

Bookings for two where the combined total is 200kg or more in total must book a private flight for additional cost.

Failure to provide accurate weights may result in the passenger(s) being unable to fly or further costs to the passenger(s) to proceed with the planned flight or aircraft upgrade. This is all based on safety and will never be compromised. Sydney Helitours will take no responsibility for any costs associated with the passenger(s) being unable to take their flight if inaccurate weights are provided.
