    What to Expect
    Your scenic helicopter tour starts with pickup from your Sedona hotel and transfer to the helicopter airport.

    After a warm welcome from your experienced pilot, receive a brief orientation to helicopter and a radio headset that allows for 2-way communications throughout your flight. Then step on board your helicopter and lift off into the air. Your pilot steers you around Lee Mountain, part of the Coconino National Forest, then continues over one of Sedona’s most popular attractions: the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Built in 1956 and considered a masterpiece of modern architecture, this Catholic church was built into a tall red rock spire and incorporates the desert landscape into its design. In a similar vein, your pilot takes you over the Three Nuns rock formation, before continuing on to other spots with colorful names, including Snoopy Rock and Steamboat Rock.

    Next up, glide over the thick forest of the Bear Wallow Wilderness, home to the biggest virgin ponderosa pine in the American Southwest. You can also see the Mogollon Rim, which marks the southern boundary of the vast Colorado Plateau, then look for Schnebly Hill Road, a stagecoach route from the late 1800s. Hear about the history of the Old West as you see its amazing landscape from the air. Be sure to bring your camera for excellent photo ops from your aerial perspective.

    We got this air tour for free by suffering through a timeshare presentation. The flight was only 15 minutes, but the views from the air of Red Rock country are unbeatable. We are glad we did it...once.

    We decided to take the helicopter ride as we got it at a much discounted price due to listening to a time share presentation. Had we paid full price I would have demanded my money back. There is seating for up to 4 passengers, with 1 getting the prime seat in front and the

    Thank you for your review--we appreciate all comments. Yes, the seats are assigned to balance the helicopter both front-to-back and side-to-side. We fly Bell Helicopters, the safest tour helicopter available. I am sorry you felt you could not see well enough. As for the flight time, the minutes are approximate, the miles are set. We fly the same route past the same rock formations on all flights. Thank you for your time.

    My sister talked me into my first helicopter tour. I'm glad it only lasted about 15 minutes, because I was really scared. The pilot kept reassuring us that it was safe; he was very experienced and the company's safety record is 100%. Still, it was a bit turbulent, so I

    Thank you for your review. The center seat does have the benefit of being able to see out both sides when your fellow passengers work with you. We are glad that you flew with us!
