That is not an automobile, it is a plane. Do you know how much it will cost to get a commercial pilots license to fly one of these helicopters?

FAA commercial pilots license

The cost of pilots license will depend on which type of certification you would like to take. In getting certified you need to pass two test and those are the flying test and the written test.
A written test will approximately cost you from $200 to $400. For the flying test, below are the approximate rate depending on the type of license you are taking:
Commercial Pilot License – from $12000 to $17000
The written exams would contain 60 multiple-choice questions. You can take the exam at a FAA Testing Center and you need to get a 70% passing mark. After the written exam, you would need to take a flight ride together with an FAA-certified examiner wherein the examiner will ask you a series of question to check on your ability to fly.

And that does not include any training costs to lean how to fly.
Good luck!
