What To Expect

You can see Toronto from eye level on the street. You can climb the famous CN Tower to see it from above. You can even take a boat around the waterfront. But nowhere else can you experience a view of Toronto from the sky like this one, on board a helicopter flying high above the largest city in Canada.

Begin this Toronto helicopter tour at the Toronto City Center Airport, located downtown, just minutes west of the shoreline from the CN Tower. 

This flight is the showcase flight of downtown Toronto. The tour takes place at 2,000 feet, covering almost nine miles in just a few minutes. Marvel at the sights from this height and the distance that can be traveled without battling with the congested streets and traffic lights below. Discover Toronto by flying over the Canadian National Exhibition grounds in the west to the Don Valley Parkway in the east; and from the Lake Shore in the south up to Bloor Street in the north before heading back downtown to complete this breathtaking aerial adventure.

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport

Your tour starts at Toronto's downtown city airport, where you'll check in and board your 3-passenger helicopter. Meet your pilot and take off into the sky, rising approximately 2,000 feet (600 meters) above the ground.

Amazing experience. Wish it was longer! Best views of the city. Words can’t explain the feeling, only through experience will you know!
Definite must-do
Brenda_R, Aug 2021
The helicopter ride was amazing! What made it even more comforting was how clean and organized staff were. They made sure there wasn’t too many people in the waiting room, sanitized everything after someone touched things. The staff were very friendly! The pilot was great at answering our questions, no awkward silence. Seeing the city in a helicopter was definitely an experience to remember!
Spend The Money!

Professional! Wonderful! Friendly! A little tricky to find the hanger, but definitely worth the effort! Seven minutes might not seem like a lot, but trust me (WE) had an absolutely fantastic experience!
Special surprise for my daughter who is going away for school.

A must do! ! I booked this as a surprise for my husband for our anniversary and it was amazing, couple of downsides was I thought it would only be the 2 of us it was never suggested we would be sharing the flight with someone else but a random stranger was on our flight then I was told I couldn't sit beside my husband in the back and I was put in the front so we didn't get to sit together also the headsets didn't work so there was no communication between anyone, it was great to see Toronto from above though and we got our picture taken beside the helicopter and collected it at the end, there is also a complimentary shuttle to billy bishop airport from the royal York hotel which was really handy
Brilliant, from start to finish! I...
Julia_S, Jan 2018
Brilliant, from start to finish! I would highly recommend everyone considers this tour for a different view of Toronto. Nice little touch - we also received a souvenir photo.
