Amazing vistas, Oliver is an experienced pilot. Henry worked very hard to make sure that our trip was rebooked after being cancelled due to unfavorable conditions.

We both loved our helicopter flight, but by far the best part was landing up on the butte. It was beautiful, fun and relaxing. Highly recommended!

Staff and Pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly. Had a great time on our flight.
