Q. Where can I find helicopter statistics?

Helicopter Statistics from BTS 


  • View General Aviation and Part 135 Activity Surveys provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for general helicopter data. 

  • The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) collects traffic data for certificated air carriers only

    • Our statistics include little data on helicopters

    • Example: For 2008 our database show only 6,876 of 11,551,672 departures (domestic and international) were flown by helicopters

    • View this data yourself by accessing the T-100 Segment (All Carriers) database

      • Click "Analysis" next to "Aircraft Group" 

      • set "Filter variables" to "DepPerformed (or passengers)"

      • Set "Filter Year" to 2008 and recalculate
