High-flying Customer Reviews Enable Maverick to Begin 2017 on Lofty Note

Posted by Maverick Helicopters on Jan 21, 2017 3:15:00 PM

Most business owners usually have a strong gut sense when things are going well and especially when they're not.

So when a customer takes the time to share a positive experience, it does more than confirm that gut sense; it compels a business owner to try even harder to up the ante and give customers an even better experience.

Such was the case when a customer wrote to us about a helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon: "Maverick did a great job, and I was extremely satisfied with the tour! There was absolutely no fault in the trip and I am very happy that the MGM recommended Maverick. Ben, our pilot, was very funny and friendly and super informative."

How to Plan Your Dream Trip

Posted by Maverick Helicopters on Jan 10, 2017 7:00:00 PM

Despite a lot of talk about traveling, the majority of Americans have become significantly less mobile in recent decades. Work, money, life... it all seems to conspire and get in the way of out-of-town getaways, both the planned and the spontaneous. But taking your dream trip and doing more with it is often easier than you think.

The first step to making your dream travels come true is to set deadlines and take action to meet them. After all, a dream without action is just a wish, but a dream with a deadline is an achievable goal. By saving as you go to meet financial milestones and thinking a bit more creatively, you too can pursue your dream trips and make them a reality.

How to Make the Most Out of a Short Grand Canyon Trip

Posted by Maverick Helicopters on Jan 3, 2017 6:15:00 PM

One of the words most often used to describe the Grand Canyon is 'overwhelming.' We certainly agree. The sheer scale and intricate curves, depths and colors of this fantastic geological wonder can render just about anyone speechless. It can also make deciding how to optimize a short trip overwhelming in and of itself. Too many visitors only drive around the South Rim, take a photo or two and drive away. With a park so vast, we understand it's nearly impossible to experience all of it during a half-day or day trip.

That's why we'll help you craft a plan. Consider the following tips and ideas for getting the most out of even the shortest Grand Canyon adventure:
