About Max Flight Helicopter Services
Detroit has so much to see, from Belle Isle to the downtown skyline to Comerica Park, but the perspective from the ground can leave something to be desired, especially if you've seen all these landmarks before. If you're soaring 1,500 feet above ground, though, you can get a bird's-eye view and a sense of the big picture of the Motor City. And Max Flight Helicopter Services makes that possible with its helicopter tours. On an average half-hour flight in a Robinson R-44 helicopter, the licensed, certified trainers also act as guides, pointing out anything from historic architecture to rock stars' homes while you gape out the windows at the landmarks below.
If you're so inspired by the flight that you'd like to try flying a helicopter, Max Flight can help you out there, as well, from its FAA-licensed, certified facility. But this time, you get to sit at the controls of the Robinson R-44, developing the skills you need to earn your pilot's license, instrument rating, helicopter add-on rating, and commercial license with the aid of the expert pilots.
