Private Helicopter–An Incredible Way to Fly!
RAI Jets LLC offers private helicopter charter and management from our convenient hangar at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International airport. Helicopters provide an even more agile, faster way to arrive at your destination…in style! Through our strategic partners, RAI has access to hundreds of charter helicopters for your convenience.
En route to your destination you’ll enjoy breathtaking, panoramic views that that are unequaled by any other aircraft. Meanwhile, you’ll enjoy the same advantages of scheduling flexibility, top speed and luxury as a private jet flight, but with a twist. Helicopters can land almost anywhere!
More and more places offer helipads for their VIP guests, including high-end hotels, stadiums and entertainment venues and it is becoming a more viable option for folks who want to make an exciting entrance.
Since helicopters have vertical capability, no runway is required for landing. Private helicopters can land in remote locations where there is no airport, or difficult areas to reach like mountaintops. Helipads are common at many high-end hotels, stadiums and Given enough space, they can even land in backyards, parking lots or watercraft.
If you own your own chopper, our ample hangar is available to lease for storage, along with the same turnkey maintenance and management services we offer our charter jet customers. That means you will have the opportunity to generate revenue with your private helicopter with our other customers when it is not in use.
We’re proud of our chief pilot, Brian Riley, who is an experienced, U.S. Army and National Guard veteran and experienced with UH-1 and UH-60 helicopters. His expertise can help you with the maintenance, management and use of your helicopter.
