Now out of that hour theres time taken to Land and Takeoff and considerable time spent on the ground loading and chucking off Pax. Then there is what?, about a three hour Roundtrip to Ferry a Jet Ranger from Dublin to Waterford, stopping for a sip of fuel at Waterford International Airport before heading out to our Sports field loacation or similar. Plus you've got to get someone to drive down from Dublin with a Fuel Bowser, if they were working off aiport. (Lets pretend it was Celtic, although I have no idea if they were there) Not to mention of course Handling Staff to shepard Pax to and from a Rotors Running Heli ( Can you imagine trying to explain that to an insurance broker! ). Insurance, Tax, Flight Permits if needed to operate flights off aiport, Landing Fees, Staff expenses like food and board, Factor in your actual running costs per hour, Lashings and Lashings of Jet A1 Mr Kipling, 2 Euro a minute phonecalls to weather Dial, maybe even an Engineer for the Day to look after the machinery yada yada....
My money, like Michael O'Learys, is invested in the Post Office...........
