I chose this helicopter ride as a gift for my mother's 80th birthday. She and my entire family of 5 so thoroughly enjoyed it--we will be back!! Nick, was our pilot and he was incredible!! Thanks Nick!! I hope the people behind us that were being nasty because "you couldn't control the weather" didn't ruin your day. You were amazing!! I will back for the tour without the doors next time...

I loved this tour so much! We were able to see the whole Sarasota coast, you don’t even feel like you are in a helicopter. The pilot was nice and provided us with the safety information about the trip and the places we were watching.

About Heli Aviation

At Heli Aviation, the Robinson R22, R44, and R66 helicopters that make up the fleet serve a number of roles. They not only lift casual passengers into the sky for sightseeing tours, photography sessions, and search parties for lost Mylar balloons, but also give traffic-patrol pilots a bird's-eye view of the morning commute. Plus, they're used during flying lessons.

Aerial fun and excitement aboard the helicopters are second only to one thing at Heli Aviation—safety. The Helicopter Association International member relies on the Target Zero Safety Management System, whose goal is nothing short of perfection, or zero accidents while providing helicopter services.

After full safety briefings each day, the pilots take off from their 10,000-square-foot area at Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, which features a lobby, classrooms, a training area, and hanger space.
