We took the Christmas lights tour and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed every second of the flight. Cal was our pilot and he was awesome. Pointed things out and was sure to give both sides of the chopper equal "view love."
We would absolutely do this again. Thank you, My flight for a great trip

It is so worth the experience. it is so amazing to see how everything looks from above. It was my first along with my bf. And we both loved it! Our captain Lucas was incredible! Very informative. Will definitely come back again. but I honestly have to say, I don't think it was a 20 mins ride like we paid for.

All the staff were extremely nice. Spoke loud and clear and made sure we were safely boarded &vice versa. Our pilot, Kory, did an amazing job with the ride. Kept conversation light and humorous. Informed us when coming up on main buildings/landmarks. Made our first helicopter ride a memorable one! Cant wait to fly with them again!
