We had a wonderful experience using Orbic Air for our Teenage Sons first helicopter ride. The staff was friendly and helpful and the pilot went out of her way to make sure my sons favorite Hollywood star was on the route so he could see "VIN DIESEL'S" home. It was a great experience.

Our helicopter ride was in celebration of our 36th wedding anniversary and we just wanted to shake it up. Hubby and I were born and raised in L.A., but had never seen the sights from a bird's eye view. It was AWEsome. Our pilot, Merlinda, was very personable and knowledgable. We flew right by the Hollywood sign and right over... More

Orbic Helicopters really shone. We reserved a private helicopter for the four of us visiting California from Scotland. Saw all the sights from Santa Monica to downtown including the Hollywood sign and celebrity homes in the Hollywood hills. Stunning views of the downtown skyscrapers too. Reservations and communication was efficient and very prompt - we did it all online. Our... More

What a fantastic experience which has provided life time memories. Booked my family of six in for a 45 minute helicopter tour of Los Angeles. Orbic Air were thoroughly professional to deal with throughout. The helicopters are modern and the pilots were so well informed and oblliging. Needed two helicopters which worked well. The scenery was spectacular. You got so... More

It had been 18 years since the last time I flew (Army Aviator). I was amazed at how quickly it all came back to me...flying a helicopter is an amazing experience. Thanks Merlinda for letting me take the controls around LA
