A Brief Overview on Helicopter Tours and Rides
There are two main types of helicopter rides available, one for a single passenger and one for a number of passengers. For a single passenger the rates are a bit more and the flight times tend to be longer, but the view is incredible and it’s worth it for that alone. For groups of people the rates tend to be split, with each person paying a bit more for the flight and sometimes a couple of extra passengers. There are also helicopter rides for children and for adults there are special tours available.
For those who are new to flying helicopters there are a number of qualified instructors who will teach you how to fly it safely. Once you have undergone training and obtained basic certificate then you can book your first ever flight. Helicopter rides are extremely popular and increase in popularity all the time – there must be a reason! When you are on a helicopter flight you can’t help but notice how calm and relaxed the pilots are and they often don’t even speak – all you hear is the humming sound of the machines and the occasional twang as they bank round.
