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! « less

I fly a lot (by plane), but this was my first time in a helicopter. I didn't know exactly what to expect. It was AMAZING. Will did a fantastic job explaining everything about the helicopter and how it works. I have rafted the gorge and walked the bridge numerous times, and I am convinced there is no better way to...

We opted for the extended sunset tour. What a truly amazing experience, with ever changing colours due to the setting sun. A well presented commentary of the area and the history surrounding the local area. A very friendly pilot that one is comfortable with, whose priority was safety at all times. Well worth the effort for ourselves to make the... More

Our helicopter ride was awesome and our pilot was excellent. We did the short tour but will be back to do a longer one. Always support your local business.

I would recommend everyone to go for a Chopper ride with Eli and Will. They are so much concerned about our safety. We had an appointment for sunset ride but unfortunately weather turned bad, but these guys informed us and insisted to walkin anytime we could make it. And then we got a most amazing experience of flying with Eli.... More

I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Halloween mini golf and we all took a helicopter ride with him. It was my sons first time in a helicopter and Eli took the time to explain everything there is to know about flying. My son has been fascinated with air planes and helicopters and we sat in that thing... More

A surprise gift from my husband. I wanted to do this for sooooo long. What a spectacular experience! Will and Eli were wonderful to a first timer who's afraid of heights. Safety is #1 on their list. I felt so calm and relaxed. To be up in the heavens and see Gods creations were mind boggling.To see the Arkansas River,the... More

If you have not seen the Royal Gorge, here is the chance to see this spectacular sight. This is a true adventure for all ages. The owners are super nice and safety is their first concern. You will see the Royal Gorge, the Royal Gorge Train, if running, white water rafters and people zip lining all below you, it feels... More

My husband booked this, I had never been on a helicopter, and neither have our 4 kids. I was nervous, but I have to say it was my favorite part of our trip!!! Wil was our pilot, and he was great making us comfortable and pointing out beatiful sights while in the air. I'm looking so forward to doing it... More

We just completed our Royal Gorge Canyon Run helitour, and I must say. It was one of the most thrilling and beautiful experiences we've ever had the pleasure of doing. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. If you have the option I would recommend asking to take the doors off the chopper. It adds so much to the experience,... More

The tour was awesome!!! I have never experience anything like this tour before. From the moment we walk thru the doors, to the final second we exited the helicopter, the experience was superb! Flying over the Royal Gorge is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I am so glad I can say I have done it, and mostly likely... More
