These guys are great! Logan was our pilot who expertly flew us on the Hollywood and more tour. It was great to do the LAX VFR transition over the coastline. Ofcourse the sign and homes of the rich and famous. Highly recommend

There were a lot of amazing things about this tour, but the best was flying over LAX with planes taking off and landing below us. Our pilot, Dimitris, did an excellent job of describing the different sights as we flew over them. My two boys (15 and 18) had a great time.

Thanks to Paul, our pilot for an enjoyable and informative tour of LA, Hollywood and Adjacent boroughs. Great tour - begins in Inglewood so get to see the whole of LA as you fly up towards Santana Monica and then across Hollywood to the sign and back across to the airfield. Felt safe - although the smaller copters are a little wobbly feeling. Tour guide very knowledgable with good banter - nice treat for a vacation.

I ended up with a Saturday morning free after my co-workers left town following a conference. I'd never been to L.A., and never been on a helicopter. I'm so happy this company was referred to me! Vince (the pilot) and I were in a 2-person helicopter, which made it seem like a very personalized trip. I opted for the 50 - 60 minute tour. He was great about pointing out everything of interest and answering all my questions. I didn't feel rushed through the trip and actually loved the feel of being in a tiny flying machine! I would definitely look these guys up if I had another opportunity to do a tour in L.A. Oh, and from downtown where I had the conference, this airport is just a couple of exits shy of LAX, so I was able to grab another taxi and easily get to the airport to catch my flight on time.
