Please note all helicopters have a weight restriction protocol – read carefully:

Weight protocol has two components:

a) 10% weight variance from advised; and

b) Exceeding a certain weight limit

 Weight Variance

Passengers are allowed a weight variance of up to 10% over original recorded weight. Should this variance be found to be more than 10%, the company reserves the right to charge an additional fee. No refund will apply. 

This fee comes into effect when a guest weighs in 10% heavier than advised and results in us having to use a bigger helicopter or put up additional flights. 

The dollar amount of this fee is not specified, as it will be circumstantial to covering our additional incurred costs.

 Weight limit:

· Any passenger who weighs over 110kg will need to purchase an additional seat, which will be charged at 50% of the fare rate and payable directly to Nautilus Aviation on the day of travel.

This is to ensure we don’t exceed individual helicopter seat limits and that we do task the appropriate helicopter for the job; and for the comfort of all guests travelling. 

Please ensure Nautilus is aware of any booking over 110kg, as we will need to close a seat on the appropriate flight template. 

The fee may be waived on the day should we happen have a vacant seat on the helicopter anyway.
