The Grand Canyon is one of the most visited locations in the western United States. The immense size of this national landmark makes it difficult to take in all of its grandeur at once. However, when you see the Grand Canyon by air you experience just how exceptional this modern marvel is with sweeping views and hidden areas only visible from the sky. Here are three of the best ways to see the Grand Canyon by air.
The ECO-Star (made by Airbus Helicopters) is a first-class experience in flight. Wraparound windows throughout the interior gives guests unsurpassed views from anywhere in the helicopter. Theater-style seating provides ample room and a high level of comfort allowing guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy your trip to the Grand Canyon. The enclosed Fenestron Tail Rotor reduces outside noise by 50% making the customer experience more enjoyable.
Maverick Aviation Group has the largest fleet of ECO-Star helicopters in the world ready to take you on a journey to the Grand Canyon.
Beechcraft 1900D Performance
The Beechcraft is a 19-passenger, pressurized twin-engine turboprop airplane offering transportation to the Grand Canyon. The 1900D was designed to provide a “stand-up cabin,” which would allow most passengers to walk upright throughout the aircraft during the flight. It is one of only two 19-seat airliners with this feature. Airlines often prefer the 1900 over jet aircraft for shorter routes due to its fuel efficiency.
Jump aboard our Beechcraft 1900D on Maverick Airlines Canyon Dream Air and Land Tour for transportation to the Grand Canyon South Rim where you can enjoy further adventure inside the Grand Canyon National Park, or take an additional helicopter flight over the canyon itself.
Cessna Grand Caravan
The Cessna Grand Caravan has a 9 passenger seating configuration with up to 340 cubic feet of cabin space. Leather bucket seats with extra legroom and all window views provide excellent photo opportunities of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Grand Canyon. The Cessna Grand Caravan is a high-winged aircraft that flies at a lower altitude for superior visibility and exceptional performance. The aircraft provides an air-conditioned cabin making it a comfortable experience for travelers.
Maverick Airlines operates Beechcraft 1900D and several Cessna Grand Caravan 208 aircraft departing from the Henderson Executive Airport, just a short transfer from the famed Las Vegas Strip.
