Retired US Army, I've been in helicopters before. My wife had not. The pre-flight excitement was palpable. Everyone at the facility was very professional and we had no fearful concerns after our manditory briefing. The pilot (Roy) was very easy to be around and a wealth of information throughout the flight. This will be the highlight of 2021 for sure, we will surely share our excitment with family and friends. The cost is as little as $35 each for a flight (we did the $75 each) and worth every penny! I cannot recomend this highly enough. SSG. GP.

We booked it 30 minutes before we started, we called them and asked for the price, since the 7 minute flight appears to short for us we took the eleven minutes one. It was amazing.. he showed us some hot spots and where to go, 11 minutes was just perfect since it didn’t get boring any time.

Considering I get motion sick easily and am terrified of turbulence on planes, I was uneasy going onto this tour but really wanted to see the area and wanted to also feel what the helicopter ride experience is all about. Roy made the experience so much easier for us. My son and I loved the ride and Roy told us a lot about the area when we asked some questions. Otherwise, he was also very happy to let us just take in the experience with quiet. Very professional and safe with great instruction by Matt and Jennifer on safety instructions and guidelines. Thank you all for a great trip!

Was our first time in a helicopter. My husband 61, said it was better than any amusement ride he had ever been on. My grandson 15, road copilot thoroughly enjoyed it. I myself thought it was fantastic. We will go again next time we visit Big Bear Lake.

Me and my 3 years old kid just took the 11 minutes helicopter Tour. We both had so much fun :-)

The pilot Roy is such a nice guy and made sure that we felt happy and safe all the time. He even took his time to tell us a little bit about what else to do in Big Bear :)

I would definitely recomend! (For all ages)
