Good for you for flying in a helicopter with a fear of heights. We try to explain to our guests that lots of our pilots and passengers have a fear of heights and it doesn't seem to affect people in the helicopter. Graham is an awesome pilot and has dreamed of flying in the Great Smoky Mountains for a long... More

This was a great experience from purchasing tickets at their office until we landed. The staff were amazing at explaining and preparing us for our ride. My nine year old got to ride up front with the pilot who was so attentive to him. Rent the headset, the flight can be loud without them and you would not be able... More

It was our first Helicopter ride and we got into one small helicopter. The young pilot was knowledgeable and gave us brief descriptions of the landmarks we flew over. We took the headsets at an additional cost but it was worth it - helped us communicate between us and the pilot too. I took the recommended package costing about 170$... More

Thank y'all for choosing to fly with Scenic for your first helicopter tour, we're so glad you enjoyed it. So many of our guests "wish they had gone longer" or "will go longer next time" it doesn't seem to matter what flight people choose, they all want to go longer. The headsets allow you to communicate with the pilots and... More

This was a sentimental flight for a Vietnam Veteran and his wife. The pricing was competitive for the area. The helicopter was piloted by a very competent young pilot. An excellent experience that I would do again if I ever get back that way.
