What You Can Expect

Helicopter Flight in Dubai

See Dubai's impressive skyline from a helicopter!

Start your experience with pick up from your hotel, you will arrive at the Atlantis at Palm Jumeirah at least 45 minutes before your chosen flight time. Check in, and then take a seat in the spacious lounge to listen to a comprehensive safety briefing. Help yourself to a soda or hot drink (own expense), and then leave any personal items in your locker; only cameras are allowed on the flight.

At your start time, follow your pilot to the helipad and then relax in your seat (either beside the pilot or in a row of four seats to the rear) as you take to the skies above Dubai. With iconic Palm Jumeirah and the sea to one side, gaze out over the city as you soar around the sleek high-rise buildings and swanky malls that embody Dubai’s urban skyscape.

Cruise above downtown Dubai and marvel at Burj Khalifa, one of the world’s tallest man-made buildings, with its pin-sharp tower. Glance down at the luxury sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel, and ogle the sandy beaches that frame the city’s bustling streets. Your pilot will point out attractions as you pass them to ensure no sights are missed!

Before returning to the start point at Palm Jumeirah, soar around The World, one of Dubai’s most ambitious property projects, where nearly 300 man-made islands have been built to look like the continents of the world. Admire Greenland, which was bought by a sheik as an exclusive vacation home, and hear stories about Lebanon, a ‘country’ owned by a private hotel.

After 15 minutes in the air, loop back to Atlantis at Palm Jumeirah and touch down at the start point where your helicopter experience finishes with drop off back at your hotel. If you have more time free, upgrade to a 25-minute flight and spend longer in the air, checking out all the city’s attractions.

The helicopter tour was awesome!!!! I love every minute of it. The helicopter center did a good job in organizing various groups. I got picked up by a private car. There were about 5 people in my group and the helicopter could sit 6. So one person had to sit in the middle. They did weigh each passenger before taking off. It felt like lighter weighted people got sit in the front while the heavier ones sat in the back. I happened to sit right next to the pilot and had a wonderful view. I highly recommend this tour.
