What You Can Expect
The fleet consists predominately of European AS355 Twin Engine Squirrels (seats 06 passengers plus pilot). They are ideal aircraft for scenic flights, with an open plan cabin making for excellent views for all passengers. The Helicopter Line has the highest levels of Civil Aviation Authority certification for scenic helicopter operations, this involves regular monitoring and audit of all aspects of the operations.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. The scenery on the short helicopter ride was spectacular. There were longer and more expensive options, but we found that the short ride was long enough.
