We have two permanent locations in the Metro-Detroit area (Oakland/Troy Airport and Plymouth-Canton Mettettal Airport). However, we attend festivals, fairs and other events where we offer rides. In addition, we have a working relationship with the Grand Haven Airport and offer tours in West Michigan during the summer months.
You are able to wear whatever you are most comfortable in. The helicopters have heat and A/C, allowing the temperature to be comfortable no matter what season it is.
For tours, we are able to take up 3 riders at a time. We kindly ask that there are at least two individuals in the helicopter for a tour. If you are a single rider, we should be able to accommodate you by pairing you with a group of two.
In our opinion we think taking the doors off of the helicopter gives you a better view, glare-less pictures, and a whole lot of fresh air! But you have the choice between both.
