FAQS

    Do we need a reservation?
    We’re just a walk-in business, so there’s no need to make a reservation. Since we operate as a ‘first come, first serve’ business, we recommend you come early in the day rather than later. Our hours of operation are from 10am-Sunset, 7 days a week (weather permitting). Sunset times are constantly changing so an hour The only flight we can accept reservations for is our Sunset flight, as it is the very last flight of the day. There is no extra cost for the Sunset flight, just choose a tour from the 10 mile, 'Miracle Strip' or longer and give us a call!

    Is there a weight limit?
    We are required to adhere to certain weight regulations. Robinson, our helicopter manufacturer, sets a weight limit of 300 lbs per seat. Additionally, the total group weight must stay below 550 lbs. Each passenger will be weighed at our front desk, prior to their flight. The seating arrangement will then be determined by each individual's weight. The 550 lb group weight limit is subject to change based on the pilot and the flight conditions of the day. However, the 300 lb per seat limitation will never change.

    How many people fit in the helicopter?
    Our Robinson R-44 helicopters can hold up to 3 passengers plus the pilot, as long as the 2-3 passengers have a group weight below 550 lbs and no individual exceeds 300 lbs. Additionally, we require a minimum of two paid fares to fly.

    Can my family of four ride together?
    Unfortunately, we can only seat 3 passengers per flight. However, to best accommodate your family of 4, we can offer our 'FAM4 Special'. We will send 1 adult up with the 2 kids on the first flight, and when they return we'll send the other adult with the 2 kids on the second flight. So the kids get to fly twice, but each passenger only pays once. This option works for any of our 6 tours you choose.

    Is there an age limit?
    There is no age limit to fly with us! Children 2 years or older are required to have their own seat and seatbelt due to federal regulations. Children under 2 years old will be able to sit on the lap of an adult as long as their total weight does not exceed 300 lbs.

    Can I fly by myself?
    In order to make our tours more affordable, we must have at least 2 paying fares on each flight. There are 3 options you can choose from if you are unable to find someone to ride with you. Option 1: You can pay for 2 seats but since you are a single rider, we can offer you a $5 discount per seat. Option 2: We can add you to our single rider list where we will try to pair you up with another single rider who is interested in a similar tour. Option 3: You can wait here with us until we’re able to add you to a flight of 2, providing no one exceeds 300 lbs individually and the group weight stays below 550 lbs.

    Do you fly in the rain?
    There are a few weather conditions that would prevent us from flying. Rain, lightening, fog, and high wind conditions are the most common reasons we would choose not to operate.
