5 Tips For Choosing A Helicopter Charter

1. Make a Safe Choice - Choose a tour that advertises that they are certified as a FAA Part 135 Air Carrier, which means that the operator is subject to higher standards than general aviation operators.

2. Know the Seating Arrangement – Find out the seating capability and make sure your not stuck in an isle. But bear in mind that seating will be based on the weight of you and your friend/partner.

3. Shop online for pricing. Most companies offer a nice discount for booking directly with them. That’s one reason does not sell adventures. We simply provide you the information you need to find a helicopter charter near you.

4. Timing your Tour. If possible, try to book your tour on the first or second day of your trip so that you will gain a better orientation of the area. In my opinion, late morning or early afternoon flights are best.

5. Do’s and don’ts on the day of your tour.


• Pay close attention to the safety instructions provided and don’t hesitate to ask questions about them. • Wear dark clothing without patterns to minimize the glare on the windows. • If you are prone to motion sickness, take medication in advance. • Use high speed film/settings for your camera.

Don’t’s • Wear earrings because they could get in the way of your headphones. • Spend too much time looking at the scenery through tiny viewfinder of your camera.
