They have a great operation and of course a great view to show you. After seeing their helicopters flying by for years, it was a great treat to finally go. Do give it a try! Don't forget your camera, but don't spend all your time looking through the viewfinder, you have to enjoy the flight and the scenery also.

Booked the Run to the Pass. Saw lots of marine life and a beautiful view of the gulf. Pilot and staff were friendly and professional.

Took the 5 mile helicopter ride which is long enough to get the experience and at a reasonable cost of $35pp (w coupon avail in local tourist ads). Flew over beach, saw a pod of dolphins and a school of rays. Great Views! Friendly pilot.

I wanted to gift my daughter a helicopter ride for her 16th birthday. The day before her birthday, we stopped by to ask the details for the ride. When we arrived the next day, the receptionist, same one that we had talked to the previous day, stated that my daughter would have to wait until another "single passager" signed up... More

Staff was very friendly . We had a very short wait and didn't have to call ahead. Our pilot was Eric and we really enjoyed flying with him. When you looked after prices it seems expensive but it was definitely worth it and would suggest it to anyone. Their location was also easy to find.

Riding in a helicopter is now checked off my bucket list. My grandson and I went up during a family event. Staff was very courteous. Even though the wind was not cooperating the day we attempted, they promised us first serve the next day. They kept their promise even with other people getting there at opening time with us. We...

Our grandson (11) and his buddy (12) rode the helicopter on Thurs, 7/21 around 11pm. Hands-down the best money spent on entertainment this vacation. We stopped by the day before and checked it out and got them the $55 each flight along the beachfront. The staff is awesome, the pilots great. The boys were grinning ear to ear when they... More

This was a wonderful idea! short flight if you get the intro flight. However, it was well worth it! got several great pictures flying over the Panama City Beach strip. I would recommend this to anyone, especially if you're on a budget.. because it is quite cheaper than parasailing.
