Suspended within a glass and steel bubble, passengers soar over red-rock foothills and misty mountaintops. In the distance, they can glimpse the towering steel buildings of the Mile High City. The sun glints from a golden dome, and abstract façades of modern architecture reach toward clear, blue skies dotted with clouds. Though their ears are shielded by headsets, the passengers can hear the hum of the helicopter’s blades as thsiey slice through the air. Customers also get a chance to try their hand at piloting a helicopter on one of the simulators.
Colorado Heli-Ops's team of extensively trained pilots has ferried passengers on over 1000 aerial tours such as these that fly over some of their state’s most historic sites and breathtaking scenery. The sleek metal hulls of the helicopters provide limousine-like luxury with plush leather seats. On-staff photographers can professionally capture tour memories with high-powered lenses affixed to digital cameras.
Colorado Heli-Ops's instructors also use their mechanical birds to train clients for private and commercial pilot’s licenses or help them brush up on more specialized skills through programs in high-altitude and mountain flight. To enable preflight preparation and let students observe the flight patterns of digital geese, staffers operate an FAA-certified Merlin Turbine simulator.

For generations, Alex Sewell's family has relied on the fertile ground of the Roaring Fork Valley—but the fifth-generation rancher decided to take to the skies. Alex started learning to fly helicopters in Boise, and eventually helped open a flight school there.
But the Rockies were his home, and today Alex helps others revel in the breathtaking scenery of his childhood with his commercial-helicopter enterprise, Alpine Aviation. Alex takes passengers on aerial tours of the Rocky Mountain landscape, offering views of springs and snow-covered forests as well as the canyons that Lewis and Clark dug themselves so long ago.
