Quite often it is an insurance requirement for two pilots to be aboard, even if a helicopter is certified single-pilot. Types requiring 2 crewman by aviation regulation: SH-3, S-61, Huey, Blackhawk, Chinook, Super Puma, Bell 214. Probably others.

helicopters without autopilot to be operated in IFR conditions helicopter by itself does NOT need two pilots to fly. in fact, most heavier helicopters actually have LESS workload compared to the tiny R-22.. as long as you're flying VFR, of course. two pilot requirement is a safety precaution and prevention of human factor errors, not airframe requirement. also, most companies will require two pilots for dual controls equipped airframes (where optional and not removed)- subject ot operator's waiver. as a rule of thumb, you can expect crew served airframes to be crew operated.

Typically military helicopters, like the AH-64D Apache Longbow: the pilot and the gunner.
