This was our first time in a helicopter and it was a great experience! We went on one of the shorter tours but wish we had opted for a longer one. Our pilot was knowledgable and a great tour guide. We felt very safe both from COVID and with our pilot. We hope to do this again!

What a super adventure. The pilot Marshall was excellent. He was thorough in explaining the safety features first. His calm demeanor and pleasant personality put any fears to rest. The ride was smooth. We felt like we were floating through the air. It was a great choice for our 11th anniversary thrill. We would do it again, and maybe again! Highly recommend this company if you want a great helicopter experience.

The pilot and helicopter ride were spectacular! BUT....Groupon advertises a St Pete Beach Tour and posts the Don Cesar hotel and beach, when that package is really a 7 min flight over the airport and downtown. We had to rebuy the helicopter ride through TBA directly and thoroughly enjoyed the experience flying over the beaches. Just dealing with Groupon is horrible--literally no customer service, not even a phone #.

My son always enjoys his flight lessons here and learns something new each time, and as soon as he turns 16 we will be signing him up for their training program. The instructors always take the time to provide personal information and keep him interested in pursuing his pilot license goals! I would highly recommend Tampa Bay Aviation if you are considering pilot license.
