Testimonial

"We are using several vendors for the purpose of selling our aircraft. In this respect AVB has proven being the number one in both effective customer support and number of responses related to our advertisements!"

Hugo Munthe-Kaas

As a first-time user of AvBuyer I was not sure of the exposure, or support I would receive with my listing. When I reached out to a former fellow Vermonter David Olcott, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing AvBuyer as our marketing platform. It could not have been easier. The day the posting went up, there were so many people sending inquiries I could not believe it!

Tina Lindberg, Mansfield Heliflight

"I want to let you know that we really enjoy working with AvBuyer. The people make the difference. Friendly, diligent, professional, conscientious, and responsive. We tend to get more responses to ads through AvBuyer than your other competitors. Keep up the great work!"

Turbine Helicopter Overview


By Matt Harris


Those who are shopping the pre-owned Turbine Helicopter market will find cheaper options from the same manufacturers, along with other out-of-production models.


Keep in mind that helicopters offered for sale on the used market may have fulfilled a completely different purpose with their previous owners.


Some of the other roles and industries Turbine Helicopters are often utilized for are police work, medevac, aerial surveillance, offshore, media, tourism and more. Turbine Helicopters are extremely versatile, and with a well-planned and well executed refurbishment they will prove very capable, comfortable modes of corporate/VIP transportation.


What are the Advantages of Turbine Helicopters?


There are various reasons that make Turbine Helicopters popular with their owners. These include:


Flexibility: Turbine Helicopters offer the advantage of greater flexibility than other types of aircraft, especially if passengers need to travel a relatively short distance. That’s because, thanks to their ability to land vertically, they can collect and drop-off passengers at places it would be impossible to access with a jet, turboprop or piston aircraft. That could include the roof of an office, a home, or even a yacht equipped with a helipad.


Time-Savings: With the ability to fly fast and direct, Turbine Helicopters literally offer door-to-door travel, which provides excellent time-savings for owners. In addition to avoiding busy, laborious airline terminals, Helicopter owners can avoid traffic congestion in metropolitan areas. This enables passengers to be more productive with their time, while also facilitating a better work-life balance for busy executives.


Utility: Owing to their ability to fly at low speeds or hover, Turbine Helicopters are ideal for multiple roles within a corporation. For example, equipped with a cargo hook, or adequate sensor system, a rotorcraft could feasibly be used for slinging cargo, aerial surveillance and passenger transportation for the same owner. And, it’s due to the many roles helicopters play that several aftermarket solutions exist allowing for a helicopter that might have flown a completely different mission profile under a previous owner to be reconfigured and refurbished for exclusive VIP or corporate transportation.


Security: Ensuring they travel only with known colleagues, friends and family, Turbine Helicopter users enjoy a higher level of security than those who travel aboard scheduled airlines or via ground-based transport.


Privacy: Although not as spacious compared to a business jets or turboprops, helicopters provide an ideal environment in which to work alongside colleagues, or sit back and relax with family and friends in a comfortable, private space.
