Before You Book
Here are a few guidelines all flights follow.
See what our Detroit flyers typically ask.
All flights depart and return to Detroit City Airport (11499 Conner St. Detroit, MI). Upon parking, you will enter through the main door that says MyFlight Tours above it. Once inside, our friendly staff members will be able to assist you.
Parking is completely free! We are located at 11499 Conner St Detroit, MI 48213, inside the Detroit City Airport.
When you pull into the main entrance of the airport, you can park to the left in the parking lot with MyFlight Tours parking signs or you can park right out front under the overhang.
Upon parking, please enter the main building through the doors to the far right (towards the tower) with the MyFlight Tours logo above the door.
To ensure a smooth and timely departure for your helicopter tour, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled flight time. This will allow us to complete our check-in process, which includes going over all of the safety rules and regulations prior to boarding the flight.
Please note that if you are more than 20 minutes late for your scheduled flight, we will charge a $25 late fee. We understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, but to keep our tours running on schedule and to respect the time of our other customers, we kindly ask that you arrive on time.
We require that you bring the credit card that was used to make the booking, as well as a valid ID that matches the name on the booking and credit card. These items are required for verification purposes before boarding the flight.
Please note that failure to provide these documents will result in the denial of your flight.
Additionally, we encourage you to bring a phone or camera to capture your experience and take photos or videos of the stunning aerial views. Our helicopter tours offer an amazing opportunity to see the world from a unique perspective, and we want you to be able to remember and share these memories for years to come.
For safety reasons, we strictly enforce a weight limit of 300 lbs per passenger as specified by the aircraft manufacturer. Please note that passengers exceeding this weight limit will not be able to fly. To ensure compliance, we will conduct a brief weighing process before the flight.
All passengers (excluding the pilot) must not exceed 600 lbs.
We require a minimum of two passengers to fly. Per trip, we can take up to three passengers. If you are a party of more than 3 we can divide your party into equal groups.
We believe that our flights make a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday. Our flights are exciting, unique, and provide an unforgettable experience that your loved one will remember for years to come.
If you’re looking to make your loved one’s birthday even more memorable, we offer a $200 birthday package that includes several special touches. The package includes 3-foot-tall marquee letters that spell out “HBD” as a surprise for your loved one after landing in the helicopter. Our photography team will also capture the moment, so you can have beautiful photos to remember the experience. Finally, we will provide a commemorative bottle of champagne, so you can toast to your loved one’s special day.
Our flights are already a fantastic gift, but the birthday package adds an extra special touch that is sure to make your loved one feel appreciated and celebrated.
During home games for the Detroit Tigers or Detroit Lions, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) imposes a temporary flight restriction over the stadium area. This means that we are not permitted to fly within 3 miles of the stadium during the game.
However, we do offer special “Game Day Routes” for our customers. These routes are altered paths that allow us to still fly during the game, but in a way that avoids the restricted airspace. The flights on these routes are the same length and distance as our regular routes, but they take a slightly different path to avoid the restricted area.
Our “Game Day Routes” are in effect for one hour before, during, and one hour after the game. This ensures that our customers can still enjoy their flights, even on game days, while also adhering to FAA regulations and safety protocols.
We are staffed at The Detroit City Airport Wednesday – Sunday. During the week our staff is available from 2PM – 8PM and on the weekends they are available from 11AM – 9PM.
Should you need to stop by outside of our normal hours, please give us a call and we can arrange for a staff member to meet you at the specific date and time of your choosing.
Please note that the Birthday and Love Packages can only be added on to The Ambassador Bridge Tour and tours above that level. Unfortunately, these packages are not currently offered for The Detroit Quick Hop.
The Quick Hop tour does not allow our staff enough time to set up the packages.
We offer a variety of custom event options, including rose petal drops, gender reveals, proposals, photoshoots, and more. Each event is custom priced based on the specific details and requirements.
To book a custom event, please visit the Helicopter Services section on our website and fill out the contact form with your desired event, date, location, and any other necessary information. A staff member will review your request and get back to you as soon as possible with pricing and availability.
We do not expect our customers to tip the pilot, but tips are always appreciated as a way to show gratitude for a job well done. While our pilots do receive a salary, tips can be an important part of their income and are a way for customers to recognize exceptional service.
We will never fly in unsafe conditions. Safety is our top priority which is why our pilots closely monitor the weather at all times. There can be times when incremental weather makes it unsafe to fly (poor visibility, strong winds, heavy rain, etc). If the weather impacts your flight, we will contact you. We do not make any weather decisions until the day of as the weather is constantly changing.
Our team will work with you to find a convenient date and time for your rescheduled flight that works with your schedule.
If you do not have a specific date and time in mind for your rescheduled flight, we will issue a flight credit for the full value of your flight. This credit can be used to rebook your flight at any time and date that is convenient for you.
If you purchased weather insurance at the time of your booking and we need to cancel your flight due to weather, you will be eligible for a refund of your tickets.
If you did not purchase weather insurance, you may reschedule for another date and time or receive a flight credit. A flight credit is a voucher for the full amount of your tour that can be used any time to rebook. It does not expire.
