20 Most Expensive Helicopters in the World

Want to know which are the most expensive helicopters in the world right now? Airplanes, cars, buses, trains, subways, ships… all these means of transport are quite ordinary, and we’ve probably all traveled via them at least once.

Well, I’ve never been on a chopper before, but it is an experience I have written down on my bucket list. These rotor-crafts are used for many purposes: transportation of passengers, for example in medical emergencies; military warfare, as a weapon,or as transport of troops and supplies to remote areas; and even commercial purposes, private transportation or sky-filming for the local news.

In compiling this list we decided to include both categories of choppers: the military helicopters and the ones for commercial purposes.
