Frequently asked questions

Flights depart from San Fernando International Airport, just 30 minutes away by car from Buenos Aires city center (see location).

We can fly any day of the week, weekend or holiday, from 9am to 6pm. It is not possible to fly at night, however in summer season we can schedule the last departure at 7pm. Since we do not have customer service offices at the airport, flights are only carried out with prior reservation.

The helicopters have capacity for 1 pilot and 3 or 4 passengers, depending on the model. Unless a private flight is specifically requested upon reservation, flights or helitours may be shared with passengers occupying other seats.

The minimum age to attend a flight is 2 years old. From that age on, all passengers pay the rate equally.

Given that the helicopters have weight and balance limitations, the total weight of the passengers must not exceed 240 kg. in the Robinson 44 and 320 kg. in the Robinson 66 (average of 80 kg. per person). In any case, the maximum weight allowed per person is 120 kg.

For safety reasons, it is required that all passengers are able to exit the helicopter by their own means, if this is necessary. If any passenger has a physical limitation, please let us know before booking a flight.

We recommend bringing comfortable and light clothes, ideally in dark colors, to avoid the reflection in the windows of the helicopter which could be seen in the photos.

All passengers must have an identity card or a passport, valid on the date of flight.

All passengers must confirm attendance to their flight at least 2 hours before the scheduled departure time, either by phone or email.

Failure to receive the confirmation and unable to establish contact with the passengers, the activity will be canceled without notice by Buenos Aires Helitours and the penalty for a no-show will be charged.

Passengers must take the necessary precautions to arrive at the airport at least 15 minutes before the time of their flight. The tolerance for any delay is 10 minutes, after that time the penalty corresponding to a no-show will be charged. Please note that we have other scheduled activities and your particular delay would affect the rest of the schedule. Better waiting a few minutes at the airport than being late and missing your flight!

The rates displayed on our website are in Argentine Pesos (ARS), Brazilian Reals (BRL), Euros (EUR) and United States Dollars (USD), the latter being the reference currency. The VAT (value added tax) of 10.5% or 21% applies depending on the type of flight to be performed. Rates can change without notice and their validity is only guaranteed in the reference currency (US dollar), from the moment the service is paid.

Reservations may be requested from our website through the contact form or by e-mail to Reservations will only be confirmed when the payment of the service, or the credit card data provided as payment guarantee, has been received.

We recommend booking a flight at least one week in advance to ensure the availability of the helicopter.

Payments can be done in advance by the means of a bank transfer. The funds must be credited to our account at least 72 hours before the date of flight.

Payments can also be done at the airport, either in cash, with a debit card or with a credit card (Visa or American Express only; 5% surcharge applies). In this case in order to confirm the reservation, it will be necessary to complete a guarantee form with the details of the credit card and its holder.

In case of bad weather conditions (rain, strong winds, reduced visibility ...), the flight will be rescheduled for another date of your convenience. We recommend to wait until the date of flight before making a change in the schedule, as sometimes the forecast is not met or only applies for part of the day and may not affect your flight.

A flight may suffer delays or reschedules and itineraries may vary due to weather, air traffic control or force majeur reasons. The customer will not hold Buenos Aires Helitours responsible for reschedules or changes of itineraries based on any of the aforementioned reasons.

The duration of each tour is indicative and varies according to the permits obtained and the route authorized by the air traffic control, weather conditions and other factors beyond the responsibility of Buenos Aires Helitours.

Since the duration of a tour is based on the elapsed time from the aircraf's engine startup to its stop, the specific flight time could be less than the total duration of the activity, since that duration includes the time on the ground required for the execution of procedures and maneuvers pre/post takeoff/landing.

In case of cancellation by the customer, the following penalties apply: more than 72 hours before the date of flight, 30% of the total service will be charged. Between 72 and 24 hours before the date of flight, 50% of the total service will be charged. Less than 24 hours before the flight or in case of a no-show, 100% of the service will be charged.

In case of cancellations by Buenos Aires Helitours, the full amount paid out by the customer will be refunded.
