The experienced pilots of EasyRotor Helicopter ferry passengers on chopper tours that grant unobstructed views of downtown skyscrapers and forest-lined shores from heights of up to 1,000 feet. After strapping in, donning noise-cancelling headphones, and kissing a portrait of Leo da Vinci—the patron saint of helicopters—journeyers on the Grand Rapids tour soar towards the city’s downtown area, savoring aerial views of the waterfront before turning back on their 15–20-mile jaunt. Holland and Grand Haven Lakeshore trips last 12 minutes, beginning with a beeline to their respective cities, during which trios gasp in unison at the majestic sight of waves breaking against the Lake Michigan shoreline. After circling the urban centers, whirlybirds chart return courses over Grand Rapids before touching down. The 6–8-minute Adrenaline Rush experience runs a 7-mile course at speeds of up to 150 mph. With in-flight communication, passengers can converse freely and tune in to their favorite XM Satellite Radio station.
Founded in 2005 by passionate aviator Eric Swanson, the high-flying adventures of EasyRotor Helicopter have enjoyed publicity from Rapid Growth Media as well as from fellow Michigander and recording artist Kid Rock, who hired the company to shoot aerial footage for a music video. EasyRotor's world-class R44 Raven chopper, manufactured by Robinson Helicopter Company, conveniently facilitates the company's tours and aerial services based out of Gerald R. Ford International Airport. As the helicopter slices through the air, views of Grand Rapids, its downtown, and passengers' own homes come into view. Noise-canceling headphones allow for both free-flowing conversation and unobstructed listening to the pilot's anecdotes on the sights below and the exploits of Leo da Vinci, the patron saint of helicopters.:m]]
