My oldest friend and I, (55 yrs of friendship) took this ride! I came up to visit her, and I wanted to do something I have never done before and that was a ride in a helicopter! I am terrified of heights to say the least, but Sean made me feel as comfortable as he could! It was a partly cloudy day so the photos we took were amazing! The whole ride was incredible and I did not tell my husband I was doing this because he would not believe me unless he saw the pics! This is a thrilling ride! Only being 20 minutes is not a lot of time, but for the biggest test of my nerves and to push myself to quit being a chicken, it was one of the most incredible things I have ever done in my life! This company is totally professional, they answer all of the questions you have, and I felt safe flying with them! Please do this if you are even just thinking about it!

Thank you for your business and the kind words! Glad to hear we were able to help you defeat your fear of heights so you wouldn't miss out on such a breathtaking experience. Your husband should be proud! Also, we would love to see your photos from the flight so feel free to tag us if you post them online.

My husband and I took a tour with Helicopter Air in Sept 2019 (last month) and loved the experience. It was our first time in a helicopter, which was a dream for both of us. We felt so safe the entire time and our pilot (Chaz) was great about letting us choose our own adventure while we were up in the air (including where to land the helicopter up in the wilderness for a bit of on-the-ground exploration). We saw lots of bears too! The folks running Helicopter Air are so kind, thorough, and really made the experience special. I'd highly recommend booking with this company!

Wonderful, once in a lifetime experience! Worth every penny! The sights are breathtaking. The professional, extremely experienced and thoughtful staff enhance the experience. This was not my first “rodeo” and these folks were truly top shelf!

Carrie met us in town and drove us to their location a short drive away. We were met by Chaz, our pilot who went over safety with us before takeoff. Their customer service is excellent! We felt completely safe with Chaz and he went above and beyond our expectations during the tour. We saw whales on our way to Mahoney Lake and Mahoney Falls. Once at the lake we saw Mountain Goats and beautiful waterfalls. He landed on a shore near a lake and we were able to get out and explore in a remote area, which was wonderful and serene. Once back in flight he was able to take us to a mountain top where we saw a mamma bear with 2 cubs. He is careful to not disturb the wildlife in their habitat, while at the same time showing us the beauty of Alaska wilderness. We highly recommend Helicopter Alaska Air and Chaz!!
