We took a Black Hills area helicopter ride to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. What a great trip! My husband was grinning the entire time. We couldn't have had a better chopper pilot (Jim)...informative and fun. We saw Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Deadwood, Lead mines, Harney Peak, etc. Searched for Mountain Goats and suprised a few Antelope. It was a... More

I am a resident in the beautiful black Hills who hikes often. Any time I want to take a relaxing, quite hike in the custer area, the loud Black Hills Aerial Adventure helicopter comes rumbling around like every five minutes! I just don't enjoy hiking as much in custer because of this. Tourists, I suggest just hiking harney peak for... More

Thank you for your thoughts and concerns. We strive to "fly neighborly" and minimize impacts on the enviornment. Our flights often provide the only means by which the elderly, infirm and handicapped can enjoy the beauty of our Black Hills. More

My wife and I got to take a flight in a Robinson R44 over Mount Rushmore with pilot Mike. The flight was superb and we got really good views of Rushmore and Keystone. Mike, the pilot, gave us information about Rushmore that we had never learned before. All in all it was a great tour and we would recommend it... More

We spotted this opportunity as we were driving to visit the visitor centre at Mount Rushmore and decided to splash out on a helicopter trip instead. So glad we did. The staff at reception were lovely and very helpful. We took the special offer and had the pleasure of seeing Mount Rushmore and the nearby by Crazy Horse monuments along... More

Pulled in at the last second to take a look. We had 2 children with us and didn't want to overly spend so we opted for the $49.00 special. It was so worth it. My boys actually got to go up twice because of the limited space. Dad flew first, I flew second. They've talked about the ride all day.... More

We went face to face with Mt Rushmore . Saw crazy horse at a birds eye view. Our pilot was knowledgeable about the area, informed us about things as we flew over . was expensive but worth it for a once in a lift time experience.

*Badlands Tour* I decided on a whim to do this with my 2 children (9 and 7) and am so glad I did. We did the cheapest package at $49/person and it was well worth it. I am not a fan of heights (had to stop on Notch Trail after the ladder on the 1st ledge to turn around...) but... More
