Tours take off from Falcon Field Airport in Mesa and last about 30 minutes. At the time of the flight, passengers must pay an additional fuel charge, of $30 for an individual or $50 for a pair.<p>
The air around Falcon Field Airport vibrates constantly as the rotors and blades of KMB Helicopter’s aircraft stir to life. Pilots there conduct sightseeing tours over the Valley of the Sun and take photographers aloft to capture rare aerial shots. They also share their expertise, providing pilot training to aspiring flyers in Robinson R22s and R44s. The clatter of tools cuts through the sound of new pilots chatting, hinting at the range of maintenance services that keep privately owned machines safe. The team will also lend out their own birds for transporting guests, herding cattle, or laughing at cattle’s bald spots.
