Whirlybird Helicopters’ professional gravity benders provide unparalleled mountain and city views with an extensive menu of specially designed aerial adventures. During the 10-minute Ogden City tour, passengers peer in on Hill Air Force Base and Weber State University before following the Wasatch Mountain bench into Ogden City. The Pineview Reservoir tour also begins with a steady air drive above the university and mountain range before proceeding to spy on the depths of the North Ogden Canyon. After snapping stunning aerial photos of the canyon and attempting to establish contact with mirror reflections in the reservoir, riders head back over Ogden City toward the landing pad.
Whirlybird Helicopters’ FAA-certified pilots take to the sky for an array of services—from crop dusting to cattle herding to aerial photography. During flight training classes, they provide one-on-one instruction while introducing students to real-life situations aboard a Cessna 172 airplane or Enstrom or Robinson helicopters. Pilots also jettison guests high above the city for 10- to 60-minute helicopter tours, which take in sprawling views of the Ogden Canyon, Wasatch Mountains, and more.
