Phoenix Helicopter Tours
Take a helicopter flight and experience more of scenic Arizona than you may ever have imagined - and never leave a single mark on the fragile desert. As you soar over pictorial and historic areas of the most beautiful desert in the world, our pilots will intrigue you with legendary tales of Arizona's past.
With breath-taking aerial vistas, sometimes stretching over a hundred miles, we take you near ghost towns, Indian ruins, 1800's-era cavalry forts, outlaw hideouts and Indian and conquistador battlegrounds. Enjoy an "eagles eye" view of beautiful desert rivers, lakes, and cliffs.
