Helicopter Tour Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Do we have to make reservations?
Reservations are not required, however we recommend that you make reservations if you are going to be flying on or near a major holiday. Otherwise we usually only have a 15 to 25 minute wait.
How do we make a reservation?
You may make your reservations online and save 15% or call us at our toll free number 1-877-428-6929 an we will be happy to set up your reservations for you.
How many people do the helicopters hold?
Our helicopter’s hold either three (3) or four (4) passengers. We believe in quality rather than quantity, and our helicopters offer the best visibility with all seats facing forward.
Is there an age limit?
Not at all. Our youngest passenger was 20 days old and the oldest passenger we know of was 102 years old, so if you’re in between those ages you are good to go. If you’re older or younger, please let us know so we can make note. Children less than 24 months are free.
Can handicapped people take a flight?
Absolutely! One of our biggest thrills is to enable those who cannot hike the back country trails to still enjoy the beauty of our area.
Can we customize our tour?
Sure. If you have a particular thing or area that you wish to fly over we can accommodate most requests.
Do you fly over waterfalls?
No, not any longer. The reason is, that most of the waterfalls in the park are very popular destinations for hikers and in order to see them from the helicopter we have to get very low over them. We decided years ago to discontinue this for the hiker’s enjoyment of natural quiet, besides the park offers many other awesome views that are virtually untouched by human feet.
Can we take pictures/video from the helicopter?
Yes. We recommend that highly.
