I took an Introductory flight with Elite Helicopters and thoroughly enjoyed it. My instructor Andy was friendly, professional and a very competent pilot. There helicopters are all well maintained and the whole experience was very enjoyable. I will definitely go back and fly with them again.

We went on a 30 minute tour of Malibu Coast Line and it was amazing! The view was spectacular, the common landmarks were named and pointed out to us, and we were oriented to every beach, city, etc., that we flew over. The pilots were very nice, and professional! They even offer free refreshments (water, coffee, muffins) since we arrived... More

My friend and I had a free afternoon in Los Angeles and I was looking on Trip Advisor for something unique and fun to do. Thanks to everyone who commented about Elite Helicopter Tours.

This was my 4th Heli tour in LA. Elite was by far the most professional and exciting tour I've taken. The customer services was unbeatable from my booking to the end of the tour. We saw whales and dolphins and the pilot was happy to point out and show us many highlights. I highly recommend Elite! Jenny - Zoom Media

Went on 45 minute LA tour with family last Sunday and had a great experience. Coming from the UK we had no prior knowledge of helicopter companies in LA and was a little sceptical of Elite due to their lower prices, there was no need to worry. Andy responded promptly to my initial emails and was also availble by phone... More
