The Robinson R44 is available for daily hire from our Elstree Aerodrome base.
SELF FLY HIRE
The 4-seat Robinson R44 is the world’s most popular helicopter, with over 5,000 models produced since 1993. The R44 offers similar handling characteristics and performance to our R66, with high reliability, fuel economy and excellent safety features as well as hydraulically assisted controls – at an affordable price. One of our R44s is fitted with emergency pop-out floats, increasing safety on journeys over water.
The high-performance R44 Clipper II has a Lycoming IO-540 fuel injected, tuned-induction engine, which eliminates the need for carburettor heat. The standard 28-volt electrical system ensures good starting performance in hot or cold weather and provides additional electrical power for optional equipment.
Our helicopter is fitted with USB chargers for on-the-go power, a GNS430 with a secondary radio and bubble windows for enhanced viewing & cabin space
We have a variety of aircraft available for you to self fly hire from us, perfect for PPL(H) holders going off on a local buzz as well as those hour building and furthering their flying experience. If you’re an aircraft owner and your helicopter is away for maintenance, give us a call and borrow ours for the day!
Hiring with ICE couldn’t be easier – after you have completed a check-flight with one of our affiliated instructors, you will be able to hire the helicopter by booking in with our friendly operations team. No membership fees, and no bulk payments up front! We only ask that if you’ve gone 28 days without flying a helicopter, we can hop in for a quick check-flight with you just for safety before you next hire the helicopter.
For short or long term dry-hire lease options, please get in touch.
