The whirlybird? It's a Robinson R44 helicopter, one of the most utilized tour choppers thanks to its comfy cabin, smooth navigations, and forward-facing seats that give all riders a full panoramic view of the Golden State. Departing from the Santa Barbara airport, these tours take passengers along the "American Riviera"—an expanse that includes the Channel Islands National Park, Santa Barbara Wine Country, and the Michael Jackson Neverland Ranch. The skilled pilots even keep an eagle-eye out for dolphins and breaching whales, all while sharing their vast knowledge of the region's history and geography.
The Spanish architecture. The bustling wharf. The cerulean ocean. There are countless sights to see in the Santa Barbara area, which is why Nanco Helicopters tailors each of their aerial tours to the client's need. Passengers take in the passing landmarks and 747 drag races from inside a Robinson R-44, helmed by commercial pilot Taylor Nancarrow.
