This was my first time on a helicopter and it will be hard to beat! Our pilot Mike was awesome and my friends and I had a great time. This is a must do even if you’ve been and seen Traverse City before.

We have two different helicopters. Our R44 holds 2-3 riders, with weight restrictions on a 3rd rider. Our Eurocopter holds 4-5 riders- this aircraft has more limited availability. Give us a call at 231.668.6000 to discuss!
