When you are booking your helicopter tour we will ask for weights for all passengers. It is very important to give an accurate weight as the pilots will be using this information to calculate weight and balance and fuel capacity for the flight. If needed passengers will be weighed prior to the flights departure.

Dress for the weather! This is especially important during the fall/winter/spring months. Our aircraft are heated but warm clothing is recommended.

Finally, bring a camera!! Our flights are photography friendly so snap away. Our pilots will be more than happy to take a photo of you and your group with the helicopter after the flight.
