Odds of copter crashing=y
Cost of repair to all equipment=x
Cost of all capital=z
Cost of your time=t
Cost to go to jobsite=a
Your value in experience=v
I'm not a theoretical mathematician but those are most of the factors. It's high cost, high risk and you should get paid for that.
BTW I've never made a dime in AP, yet.

Let's figure this out. If I can get 300 jobs lined up at 3500 a day I could retire in one year

remember Steve Martins' calculation? $1,000,000 per ticket, one show...done!

I just went back to look at this thread, it was a few years old. I guess it would all depend how hard you worked at it and how good you were and what type of clientele you target. This may have been california real estate and movie work?
