What To Expect

Begin with pickup at your hotel in Las Vegas, travel to the heliport to meet the pilot, and board an air-conditioned Eco-Star helicopter. Settle into a comfortable seat with personal headphones—if desired, you may listen to a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon throughout the flight—then lift off for the flight across the desert. On your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, fly above Lake Las Vegas and Lake Mead, then see the Hoover Dam from the air, with perfect aerial views of the recent bypass bridge.

Catch your first glimpse of the Grand Canyon, then dive below the high desert to touch down on a private bluff 3,500 feet (1,067 meters) below the rim, and just 300 feet (90 meters) above the Colorado River.

In the shade of a traditional Ramada shelter, enjoy a Champagne toast and light snacks, chat with the helicopter pilot, or simply enjoy the scenery in an exclusive, uncrowded location. After your time at the bluff, board the helicopter for the flight back to Las Vegas, passing over the Strip on your way to the heliport, where you meet a driver for return transfer to your hotel.

Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older are required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

Traveler Tips

I would recommend doing it early in the morning as the heat is tough later in the day.
Great but not perfect, beautiful experience but if it is hot outside there are couple of moments that it is not pleasant, also if you have air sickness it might be uncomfortable.
I chose to go early (1st flight out) and had a good portion of the day to do other things.

Super friendly and informative pilot, great flight!
Paul_T, Feb 2024
This was the first time ever in a helicopter! The experience was absolutely amazing right from the get go, flying over the desert to flying over the Hoover dam to the Grand Canyon. Breathtaking scenery, landing the helicopter down in the canyon for champagne and snacks. The return trip was just as amazing flying over the Vegas strip and back to the airport. Well worth the money.

Deluxe helicopter flight with Maverick
Cheryl_S, Feb 2024
The whole experience was amazing. Jacob our pilot was brilliant. He pointed out all the sights and shared his knowledge with us. An experience we will never forget. We flew over Boulder city, the hoover Dam then onto the grand canyon, landing in a private spot which we were able to explore. We flew back to Vegas and down the strip. Worth spending the extra for this amazing experience.

The staff is friendly and made it a seamless process. Josh was our pilot and he made the day fun. The views were amazing of course. What’s better than landing inside the Grand Canyon on a helicopter!? Will do this again when I bring my family.
