After you and a friend arrive at Hancock Airport, you'll both climb into a sleek, five-seater R66 whirlybird. Lifting off from Hancock Airport, the sky vessel sojourns south over notable landmarks such as Carousel Center mall. The airborne gaze upon Syracuse like an ant surveying his amoeba colony, as the chopper cuts east toward the zoo, Carrier Dome, and Syracuse University. Passengers can snap aerial photos before circling back to land at Hancock Airport.

Raven Helicopter

For more than a decade, Raven Helicopter's pilots have dazzled skyborne passengers with stunning vistas seen during aerial tours and chartered flights. During each journey, a certified pilot deftly ferries passengers through the skies in a striking, streamlined R66 turbine helicopter, outfitted with a wraparound bubble canopy for easy viewing of scenic landscapes, and a cargo hold for carrying skis, golf clubs, and other, smaller helicopters. Guests drink in the idyllic forests, hills, and lakes of the region as they snap pictures or roll film for posterity.

Customer Reviews

great ride!! sam the pilot was great! informative. friendly,witty.fun time.would definetly recommend
John N. · October 23, 2012
Sam was a wonderful pilot. Unfortunately, one of the passengers was really nervous about the helicopter ride, so he took full attention of Sam. Would like to have had more of Sam's attention during the flight. He was very sensitive to the passenger's fear which was good. However, it was not a paying passenger, so felt a touch short changed. Sam is a great pilot and could explain everything very clearly to the lay person. Highly recommend the ride.
Ellie P. · October 10, 2012
Great experience and a fair value. The pilot is a good guide and makes the flight very enjoyable by sharing information about the helicopter, local sites and general flying information.
