My husband and I went to Block Island for our honeymoon. After traveling around the island for two days, we opted to take a helicopter tour. The views were unbelievable! We loved seeing the Island from a different perspective. Our pilot, Josh, was sensational. He provided us

We had an amazing time! I recommend it to everyone. I’ve been going to BI my whole life and this helicopter tour gave me a whole new perspective on how beautiful and underdeveloped the island really is. The pilot was really fun too.

I recieved a gift certificate for my birthday. I've never been in a helicopter before and I'm also afraid of flying. This was an awesome experience! I loved it! It was so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. I will absolutely do this again.

Response from Matt H, Owner at Heliblock
Responded Sep 2, 2018
Maria, The battery on the helicopter died at the last minute so we were unable to start the helicopter for your tour, we called to inform you immediately upon realizing that the tour was going to need to be postponed/cancelled. We offered to fly another helicopter out to block Island and reschedule your flight from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, which you informed us that you couldn't. At that point we had no choice but to cancel the flight. As far as "taking money from your bank account" you booked the helicopter tour online which automatically and immediately debits your account. Upon cancellation of your flight we informed you that a refund email would be sent, and you would be refunded immediately on the card that was used to book the tour. We are sorry your day didn't work out as planned, but when in comes to aviation the most important aspect is safety. Flying a helicopter without all components operating at 100% would have been an irresponsible decision. Matt
