    The staff were friendly and excited for us to take our first helicopter ride. Both pilots were amazing during our flight and ensured we knew what we were seeing and were comfortable with the whole process. Would totally recommend this company for a tour of the red rocks around Sedona!

    Our pilot was knowledgeable and pleasant. The people at the office were friendly and thoughtful about safety. The staff was accommodating to our schedule when out flight was canceled on the first day for safety reasons. We had a wonderful flight the second day. The scenery was jaw-dropping gorgeous and worth every penny.
    Checking off a MAJOR "bucket list" item

    My wife and I have never flown in a helicopter and Mike did an excellent job calming her nerves. We are so glad to have taken the trip, and would love to do it again. The views were spectacular and could never be appreciated from any other vantage point. I would highly recommend the tour.

    Our Pilot, Christian was amazing at describing the terrain, pointing out the highlights and explaining some of the history. This is a true bucket list item that should not be missed. He also gave us more ideas that allowed us to change some of our plans to make our visit to Sedona even better!

    Visuals, closeness to the scenery, great narration of the history and pointing out sights of early dwellings that are hard to see from the ground. Very smooth ride even though we did have some winds. Music was very complementary to the tour.

    The best way to experience the topography of Sedona is from the sky! I have visited Sedona many times and love the area. This trip was my first experience in a helicopter. I would recommend this company to anyone considering seeing Sedona.

    Witness Sedona’s Grandeur
    William_S, Dec 2021
    An exceptional experience with spectacular views! We’ll worth the money, too. The ground crew were friendly and engaging while providing clear instructions and helpful assistance for our safety and convenience. Our pilot was very experienced, giving us a smooth ride with lots of background and context for what we were seeing.

    Very friendly and accommodating ground crew. They were full of helpful for the flight and surrounding area activities. The pilot was great about proving both history and points of interest during the flight. Went they safety procedures twice to make sure you were aware and felt secure. Would highly recommend.
