The adventure begins as your helicopter lifts vertically off the Royal Gorge Heliport, giving you the thrilling sense of freedom only found in a helicopter. Moments later, you are soaring over the canyon rim as the earth opens up to reveal a nearly 1,000 foot drop to the Arkansas River below. With breathtaking views of the suspension bridge, sheer granite canyon walls, and majestic mountains, this is the ultimate scenic adventure!

Pilot Will Sanders provided my family and I an great experience on a helicopter tour of the Royal Gorge and the bridge. He was great about letting our little guys watch him take the helicopter out of the hanger and he explained things along the way. His company was the only option where we could find a ride that would... More

Royal Gorge Helitours has great customer service. For being so young, Megan and Hunter were great. They are excellent in preparing customers, moving them through the process of choosing which tour to take, to signing in, to weighing, and briefing about how to mount and dismount the helicopter. The pilot, Will, is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and really is... More

This was my first experience in a helicopter and it was amazing!! I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be which was nice so that I could focus on the views around me and not on my nerves. The views were totally worth it and I would do it again in a heart beat because it was breathtaking.... More

Will Sanders - Pilot - made the trip fun. Life after Stroke, Nita wanted to try something new and something that before having her Stroke she would not have ever considered doing. She is scared of heights. So this trip in the helicopter made her day. She had a blast. This is something that she will never forget. She is... More

Want a bird's eye view of one of God's greatest creations? Take a helicopter tour over the Royal Gorge. We were both very pleased with our trip this past weekend. Could not have asked for a better time! Please give it a try. We will be telling all our friends about this "find." Happy flying!
