Experience the helicopter flight of a lifetime and see the Southwest like never before. This PRIVATE flight will take you low past the Red Rocks of Sedona and north over the high desert plains to the Grand Canyon, through the spectacular Zuni Point Corridor, past Marble Canyon, the Dragon Corridor and above the majestic Colorado River. Land at the Grand Canyon Airport for a quick stretch, photos and souvenir shopping. Or, add a private scenic ground tour inside the park. Then depart back south, past the volcanic mountain range of the San Francisco Peaks and fly low over the Coconino National Forest and scan the 1.8 million acres of the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the world, returning safely back to Scottsdale.
This is the perfect way to travel in luxury. The Airbus AS350 B2, “SaberCat1”, is the best performing single engine helicopter available today. The aircraft’s extremely low vibration levels make it the ideal choice for amazing comfort. If you opt for the ground tour you'll also be traveling in style aboard an open air jeep. This is how you "DO" the canyon.
