Grand Canyon Helicoper Tours

At Maverick Helicopters, we truly believe we sit in the midst of some of the most fascinating environments in the world. We have the glitzy and glamorous entertainment capital, Las Vegas, at our doorstep and the captivating beauty of the outdoors just a short Grand Canyon helicopter flight away.

Our "Ask the Pilot" video series is designed to showcase a few of the exciting sights our visitors are privy to during our exciting helicopter tours. This includes an introduction to some of our pilots, key information about the luxurious ECO-Star helicopters we use and facts on our region's top tourist destinations.

Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight Insights From a Maverick Pilot

The fifth video in our "Ask the Pilot" series starts with an in-helicopter video of Assistant Chief Pilot Riley Troy skillfully maneuvering one of our helicopters between canyon walls. This is a great visual example of how close and intimate our helicopter flights can get you to the beauty of the region.

After this cut, you'll see Troy standing at one of our private landing spots in the Grand Canyon. Here, he shares with viewers key information about the sights and our helicopters like:

  • The Hoover Dam took five years to build.
  • This incredible man-made structure stands over 720 feet tall.
  • Maverick's helicopters take off into the wind for better performance.
