Amsterdam Helicopter tour

Does anybody know about a company offering helicopter tours of Amsterdam? I would like to take 4 people on a 30-120 minute ride around the city. Thanks!

Hi Ganks,

Will be very difficult. There are companies offering helicopter hires in Netherlands, but most of Amsterdam is a no-go zone for many days due to Schiphol airspace. All are based elsewhere, though there is a heliport somewhere in the Sloterdijk area that they could use.

Some sites to try are

www.helicentre.nl

www.lelykopters.nl

Have fun,

Helicopter flights I've never heard of (just by small airplanes), and a 120 minute tour ?? That's enough to walk the whole city (centre) !! :-))) But you could ask www.intair.nl .

Elsewhere in the country there are several little airports for flight-seeing, for example www.asl.nl/en/outdex.htm (in the far south)

www.kroonduif-air.nl is in Rotterdam and a one-hour flight can just reach Amsterdam (if they are allowed in that airspace). On a clear day a scheduled KLM flight Amsterdam-Maastricht will also show you quite a bit of our very pretty countryside.
