Ask the Pilot #6: Grand Canyon Helicopter Landing Facts

Posted by Maverick Helicopters on Jun 29, 2017 9:19:00 AM

A Maverick tour is an amazing way to experience the Grand Canyon. Soaring above and into the canyon, a handful of our tours also provide a Grand Canyon helicopter landing. You’ll have the best of both worlds – an up-close, on-the-ground experience, combined with a unique view only a helicopter can provide.

"We went on the Wind Dancer tour today with [pilot] Logan. We had a terrific time. As a pilot myself, I could tell he was all about safety first, which I really appreciated. You could tell he really enjoyed his job the way he took care of us. We would do it again. Thank you for the experience."

"A big thank you to the Maverick team, especially our pilot Jared. My partner thoroughly enjoyed her 'Champagne Breakfast' in the Grand Canyon and the whole helicopter/Canyon experience. It was indeed a very special birthday treat. We ordered the DVD of our flight and to our amazement, was received within 8 days. An absolutely fantastic experience, on a perfectly clear day. Many thanks."
