ON Demand Charter
The Federal Aviation Administration requires that all companies who provide transportation services to the public have a specific certificate authorizing them to do so. This ranges from the biggest international airlines to the guy next door who just wants to fly his friends to the beach and charge for it.
These certificates are time consuming and very difficult to obtain as the requirements are extremely rigid. Rio Grande Helicopters is proud to say that we are officially certificated by the FAA as a Part 135 On Demand Air Carrier. What that means is that we can offer transportation to passengers, just as any normal airline would, and we can do it on your demand, not on our set schedule. This gives you, as the client, the freedom to set the time and the place. Unlike with airlines, you don't have to buy a ticket for a predetermined route leaving and arriving at a predetermined time. You also don't have the security hassles that make those short hops into long travel days. Additionally, with the helicopter, your destination can vary greatly as opposed to a 200+ passenger jet.
