Taking off from Napa Valley Airport, located just one mile off of Hwy 29, accomplished commercial pilots and aviation enthusiasts loft passengers over stunning California cityscapes and winery views. The chopper soars over the valley, to historic downtown Napa, continuing down the Silverado Trail, and all the way north to Rutherford, viewing the sprawling Napa valley, Eastern Hills, and its dozens of hidden wineries. Tours then loop back down to the south via Hwy 29 and its renowned wineries and acres of wine grapes. The copter circles back over Napa Valley, which allows passengers to check out the season's arboreal trends before landing back at the airfield and sipping complimentary juice, champagne or mimosas.

Heloventure

Heloventure founders can say they've probably seen the Golden Gate Bridge from above more often than they've seen it from below. That's because in 2010, the aviation-loving duo joined their piloting experience and passion for flight with the purchase of an R44 Clipper helicopter, which they now use to give area tours, hands-on introductory flight-instruction, and even aerial support for professional and amateur photographers. Heloventure was born with that acquisition, with the duo respectively having 20 years of piloting experience and 10 years of hands-on mechanic experience and organizing lessons and instruction.

Since its start, the business has expanded from commercial flights to performing scenic tours by helicopter and airplane that grant stunning panoramic views of the Pacific Coast and Napa and Sonoma wine region, while Mt. St. Helena. Mt. Diablo. and Mt. Tamalpias rise high above the endless valleys. For passengers who want even more control in their sky travel, Heloventure's flight-instruction program grants its students ground instruction and flight time in either a Robinson R-44 chopper or in a fixed-wing airplane. As students learn to properly pilot their aircraft, they get a gleam of the forces that drive pilots to do what they do, and they learn the dangers of decorating one's home only from in-flight shopping magazines.

Great way to see Napa and Sonoma, the pilot was awesome and shared a lot of cool knowledge about the area.

Great fun..a real adventure flying over the the vineyards and wineries of Sonoma and Napa. We flew over the Artesa winery which is hidden on a hill surrounded by a bowl like topography..really spectacular. Though we have been going through this area for 35+ years we never knew this winery was there. After the flight we drove right to it and now have another delightful wine country treasure to visit from time to time. The helicopter flight was a fun and revealing adventure.
