Robinson R44

The helicopter we use is a Robinson R44 that can fit four people (3 passengers plus your pilot). The R44 is reliable, safe, and one of the most popular helicopters in the world!


Roomy!

Each passenger will have their own seat and seatbelt.

Can you hear me?

Don't worry, each passenger will have their own Bose noise-cancelling headset to listen and talk as we cruise along on your pilot-guided tour!

Doors off!

This option is available for photo/video flights only. The R44 can be configured with one, or all four doors removed to accommodate your needs for a clear, unobstructed view of your area of interest!
