Southern Helicopters' stealthy cloud cutters whisk patrons around the atmospheric edges of Florida's scenic coastline. Each of the eight tours begins with an introductory spin around the sky, circling the new FAU stadium and the Boca shoreline. Other sight-seeing spots include Palm Beach's opulent real estate, Manalapan Island, and the Everglades to search for alligators playing frisbee golf. The savvy pilots also have experience working with aerial photographers and aspire to help patrons capture stunning footage or photos with a special harness that allows them to film or shoot with the chopper door open, as long as they promise to not let any flying monkeys in.
