During the 30-minute Mile High City helicopter tour with guided narration, passengers snap photographs of the capitol building’s glistening gold dome, catch a glimpse of Coors Field’s emerald-green outfield, and wave to jealous penguins watching from their pen at the Denver Zoo. Alternately, clients can choose the 30-minute Flatirons Exclusive tour, which soars above CU Boulder and allows views of blossoming fields in the summer and snow-peaked mountains in the winter. A 30-minute session in a flight simulator prepares passengers for flight or lets them relive the thrills of flight with realistic graphics.
Suspended within a glass and steel bubble, passengers soar over red-rock foothills and misty mountaintops. In the distance, they can glimpse the towering steel buildings of the Mile High City. The sun glints from a golden dome, and abstract façades of modern architecture reach toward clear, blue skies dotted with clouds. Though their ears are shielded by headsets, the passengers can hear the hum of the helicopter’s blades as thsiey slice through the air. Customers also get a chance to try their hand at piloting a helicopter on one of the simulators.
Colorado Heli-Ops's team of extensively trained pilots has ferried passengers on over 1000 aerial tours such as these that fly over some of their state’s most historic sites and breathtaking scenery. The sleek metal hulls of the helicopters provide limousine-like luxury with plush leather seats. On-staff photographers can professionally capture tour memories with high-powered lenses affixed to digital cameras.
Colorado Heli-Ops's instructors also use their mechanical birds to train clients for private and commercial pilot’s licenses or help them brush up on more specialized skills through programs in high-altitude and mountain flight. To enable preflight preparation and let students observe the flight patterns of digital geese, staffers operate an FAA-certified Merlin Turbine simulator.
