While financing a helicopter purchase is not as simple as it once was, it is still possible. Financing a helicopter is similar to financing property but with the average loan term being no more than 15 years. Since the sub-prime mortgage crisis in late 2008, many national lenders have become very conservative in their lending practices. However, if you have a good relationship with your local bank, they may be able to provide you with better than average rates and loan terms. While Hillsboro Aviation is not in the business of selling financing, our experience has given us the tools to point you in the right direction when it comes to financing your helicopter purchase. We have found the following resources to be helpful to past customers.
