Me and my fiancé had a great time, my fiancés dad recently passed and I brought him here for a ride. A bit emotional and I was happy to see him smiling during the ride and talking to the amazing pilot we had, and having him a bit closer to his dad. Rest In Peace -Pedro Inzunza Sanchez Thanks for the experience it might not be a big deal for you guys, but it’s things like this that help us get through it

Tahoe from a birds view

My boyfriend is afraid of heights so I was a little skeptical about booking this trip. Our pilot Davis was so professional and friendly he put us both at ease from the start. We even showed up early as our plans for the day had changed and he and Bryce were kind enough to accommodate us. It left us a little time to pop into the restaurant on-site and have a glass of wine before dinner. We met the bartender Mary who was just an extension of the wonderful experience we had. This trip is a must for anyone who’s never been in a helicopter regardless of how many times you’ve seen Tahoe nothing beats it from this view. We plan on booking a longer flight the next time we’re in the area :)
