Helicopters provide an excellent alternative to the car or train for people who need to make quick long-distance or even short hops regularly for business or pleasure. On the one hand you get to avoid congested roads and train stations, and on the other hand, you get to avoid planning well in advance and submitting detailed flight plans the way you would have to with a private jet. Helicopters can be used just as spontaneously as any vehicle.
