My boyfriend gave me the most amazing surprise... helicopter ride in Monterey & Carmel!! How cool is that~ I feel so special and loved!! Just like those girls on Bachelor TV Show~ It wasn't scary at all. Since the weather is very calm, the helicopter is very steady. Specialized Helicopters provides excellent service. The pilot is fantastic! We have a... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a flight on Valentine's Day, we both had a great time! This wasn't the first time we flew with Specialisted and definitely won't be our last. The staff is friendly and professional, we always enjoy the tours. The views are amazing! I'm already looking forward to the next tour. Highly recommended!

We thought the Monterey bay area was gorgeous before, but seeing it from the sky like... More

I won tickets for a short ride (my first ever on a helicopter) from the Specialized Facebook page and was hooked immediately. Their pilot was professional, very fun and easy going. I also booked a tour of Big Sur with Specialized as a surprise birthday present for my wife. That too was spectacular and we didn't want to come back... More
