Can I bring my camera?

Yes, and purses and camera bags are allowed as well, but they are subject to search. We do not allow any big bags or large backpacks, however we can provide secure storage for them during your flight.

Can the helicopter doors be removed?

On warm days, doors off operations are permitted. This is typically done for photography flights to eliminate the chance of window glare at certain angles.

Do I need an ID on me?

Each adult should have a photo ID with them, such as driver’s license or passport.

How far in advance do I need to book my tour?

It is strongly recommended that you call us at least 24-48 hours in advance so you can reserve the flight time of your choice. We can accept reservations up to one year in advance.

What happens if I need to cancel my tour?
