Executive helicopters sweep above some of Orange County’s famed locales during the Newport Beach tour. The route takes choppers over both water and land as headset-wearing passengers encounter striking views of famous sites such as the Orange County Fairgrounds and the golden sands of Pirate’s Cove Beach. Pilots also soar near landmarks that include Corona Del Mar, Newport Dunes, China Cove Beach, and the San Joaquin Hills. Late spring and summer flights are scheduled most days from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.<p>
From its beach-adjacent headquarters at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, OC Helicopters whisks clients away on aerial tours that deliver a rare vantage point for familiar southern California places and Orange County beaches. The owner and head pilot mans air-conditioned luxury helicopters that can comfortably seat four passengers in chairs that provide a 180-degree view. Customers choose from a number of aerial tour routes, veering south over Laguna Beach's sprawling houses or hovering near Crystal Cove and Newport Beach. Helicopters can also head northwest and take the Surf City Tour, which traces the shoreline while supplying an aviator's eyeful of surfers as they come ashore to lay their bronze eggs. OC Helicopters also offers custom tours.
