SkyBlue Helicopters LLC
Jack Cleeves stands tall in the annals of helicopter tourism with a career now spanning more than 25 years and innovations that led the way for helicopter tourism in the area. His reputation as a top chopper baron began with an early series of firsts: he was the first pilot ever granted a five-year landing spot on the bottom of the Grand Canyon—when others had to touch down on the canyon brim and feed the meters—the first to install air conditioning in his helicopters, and the first to grant every client guaranteed flights.
Upon earning the trust of high-profile organizations—such as the U.S. Department of the Interior and several major Las Vegas casino-hotels—the aviator known for his impeccably maintained aircrafts got around to establishing Sky Blue Helicopters in 2011. Using Robinson R44 Raven II Series helicopters, the company helps train the next generation of pilots and specializes in Jack's signature aerial tours. On each trip, groups glide over desert, mountains, and canyons as pilots tell the stories of the area’s history and passengers take in nature’s showmanship from above.
