Couples board one of Sonoma Helicopter's choppers for a private flight lasting up to 15 minutes around the Santa Rosa and the Sonoma areas, led by a certified pilot well versed in the most scenic locales. Afterward, pairs cruise do Clos du Bois winery for a wine tasting that includes four of the famed winery's limited-edition wines. The vintners at Clos du Bois also select a plate full of cheeses that pair with the wine to help guests engage their palates.
Sonoma Helicopter's fleet of choppers hardly ever stops spinning as they lead training, photography, and tour flights throughout the Sonoma Valley and wine country year round. Their thorough training program pairs classroom and flight sessions to produce pilots capable of taming wild helicopters, and the mountain-flying school further specializes chopper jockeys. Aside from aerial surveys that delve into animal populations, power-line patrols, and crop pollinations, the staff also takes to the air to give guests a bird's-eye view of Sonoma.
