Take the opportunity to see Niagara Falls in a way that only the birds normally do by riding with Niagara Helicopters! Fasten your seatbelt and bring your camera because you will want to take some pictures.
With a history dating back as far as 1961, Niagara Helicopters has been providing sight seeing tours and pilot training services in one form or another and under several different names.
It wasn’t until around 1981 that a young Swiss pilot named Ruedi Hafen, began flying for the company. Ruedi had big ideas of what the company could become and eventually by 1985 became the major share holder of his new helicopter tour company, Niagara Helicopters.
Since then, the air tour company has grown into a fleet of five helicopters located on a nicely landscaped 6 ½ acre property near the river.
Today’s tours offer spectacular views of all the major landmarks of the Falls such as the
, the Minolta Tower, the
Whirlpool Aero Car
and of course the best view possible of the Falls themselves.
This popular tour has a duration of about 12 minutes and includes recorded tour messages that give visitors details about the city and what they are viewing. These messages are available in several languages.
The tour company also offers unique options for your trip. There are magnificent fly in luncheons at some of the areas wineries. Niagara Helicopters will actually fly you and your party for a tour over the many vineyards throughout the area and drop you off for at a first class winery for a one of a kind meal with all the fine food and of course a great selection of wine.
