When I show up with my family and know exactly which flight I want to take, do not have your sales girl pretend she didn't hear it by attempting to upsell me to a pricier flight. Also, pay the guys who transport your customers to and from the helicopter a wage. It was tacky of them to hit me up... More

$20 per person for a 5 minute flight - goes fast, but worth it, as most folks will never get up in a helicopter. The pilot was great, service was great, our 6 year old granddaughter was totally awestruck by the adventure. Worth it!

This company's billboards advertising $20 helicopter rides pulled us in, then we found out that the $20 flight appeared to only go to the beach near Springmaid Pier and back, perhaps a 2 minute flight. Other options included $49, $79 and perhaps $99 per person options that took you increasingly further distances to the north and back. We chose the... More

Our pilot's name was Tony...he was very entertaining, informative and made the tour really fun! We flew 8 miles. Most can say they have ridden an airplane, but not a lot can say they sat in the front seat of a helicopter and flew in one! My husband, my daughter and myself had an awesome time and will definitely do... More

This was on my bucket list and loved this short 5 minute ride over the ocean. I also thought for that short ride the price was not too bad. They do have a number of other packages that are longer rides that cost more. Loved this!

I just can't rave enough about how great this experience was. From the booking if the flight and the staff, to the pilot and his skill and knowledge. We opted to fly to Murrells Inlet. We saw large schools of fish and numerous birds. The weather was excellent for our flight. Our pilot Marcus was very personable and wealth of... More

All week we made plans to do this and we were thrilled! A very smooth ride and lots of fun. We were lucky to go over our hotel so that was a thrill! This is the only ride over the beach so choose this one. Each helicopter seats 3 and I got to sit up front so I got lots... More

We saw what it seemed like a Lamborghini so we turned around to check-it out. Came to find out, it is a "fake" one, it's actually a dress-up Pontiac. Regardless, the staff was friendly and the price was competitive at the time of our stop, so we ended up riding in two separate choppers. Each chopper can only accommodate total... More

This is a good helicopter flight out at the Myrtle Beach International Airport. The parking lot is a little tight and tou have to watch for kids running across. The sales building is directly across the parking lot from the boarding gate. Tour flight begins just outside the entrance to the building where an employee explains the various flights, takes...
