Grand Canyon Air Tours via Helicopter and Plane
Grand Canyon Air tour companies, within an hour’s drive of offer helicopter or fix wing aerial tours of Grand Canyon, allowing passengers the opportunity to soar like an eagle high above the clouds for periods from 1/2 hour to 2 1/2 hours.
Del and Sheri have experienced both the fixed wing and helicopter tours. All fly routes that do not infringe on the peace and serenity of those people hiking on the Rim or into the Canyon on the main trails.
The side windows of the OTTER fifteen passenger fixed wing airplane are huge. Because the wings are above the aircraft there is an unobstructed view on your side of the plane. The pilots (there are two of them in each plane) are experienced and have many hours of safe Grand Canyon flights to their credit. The dialogue during your flight lets you know what you’re seeing as you fly at 1000 feet above the South Rim over the Canyon towards and over the North Rim.
The experience is different and the helicopters are more intimate because they carry fewer passengers. They fly at an elevation of 500 feet above the South Rim. If your photographic device has the capability, you can plug it into the sound system of the aircraft and the music and dialogue will accompany the film you record to remember your breath taking experience.
