Choose Between Two Options
- $225 for one 60-minute flight lesson ($325 value)
- $99 for one 30-minute helicopter tour and photo safari ($179 value)
Each lesson begins with 30-minutes of ground instruction and SFAR certification followed by 30-minutes of flight instruction in a Robinson R22 helicopter. Instruction is tailored to the experience and skill level of the student, helping them on their way toward private rotorcraft certification.
During 30-minute tours, passengers, who will need to provide their own camera equipment, take in aerial views of some of the area’s most photogenic sites, which might include Fort Sumter, Folly Beach, and Sullivan’s Island.
Holy City Helicopters
A bird's eye view of Charleston affords spectacular vistas of the colonial charm of the city, the vast blue ocean that surrounds it, and the green marshes that separate the two. Holy City Helicopters organizes flight tours that provide anyone with access to these unparalleled views from above.
The helicopter tours hover over locations as far flung as Kiawah Island or Edisto Beach to let tour goers soak in the colorful sights of the Low Country. From inside the cabin of a chopper during some tours, guests can see local buildings and landmarks such as Rainbow Row from above or get a better look at the U.S.S. Yorktown at Patriot's Point. Though helicopters are not usually equipped with gyro stabilized imaging, this can be requested prior to the tour.
