The concept of Maverick Helicopters began in December 1995 when husband and wife team Greg and Brenda Rochna decided to step out and do something different. They began building the idea of the company around Greg's nickname of Maverick, earned from his headstrong nature in voicing his opinions and going the extra step to create a better service environment. The Rochnas envisioned a helicopter tour outfit based on luxury and providing an unparalleled helicopter experience. Thus, in August 1996, Maverick Helicopters was officially launched in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world.

If you’re taking a trip to Las Vegas, you're probably wondering how much to tip the people you encounter. Showing some monetary appreciation never hurts and you may find you receive better service or even a few extra perks along the way.
Many people don’t carry much cash on them on a regular basis, so be prepared to tip by having a good supply of $1s, $5s, and a few $20s.
