Aviation Training Facts for Crystal River, FL
Owning Your Own Helicopter: If you're quasi-rich, the best helicopter is a fuel-injected Robinson R44 Raven II with air conditioning. If you're poor, you probably don't want a kit helicopter. What you want is a 4- or 5-way partnership in a Robinson R22. A small helicopter isn't like an airplane. You usually take it out only for an hour or two on a local trip, which makes it very easy to share and scheduling conflicts among partners are unlikely. Splitting insurance and hangar costs 4 or 5 ways brings down the total cost of ownership and flying to perhaps $10,000 per year.
