What a great way to see the Battery and Fort. This is a awesome affordable way to see Charleston. My daughter took her first Helo ride and loved it.

We took our 12 and 7 year old here for a ride. They were very excited as this would be their first helicopter ride. We did two rides so that each could sit in the front seat of the helicopter. The pilot and ground crew were awesome. They talked to the girls explaining what we were flying over and area... More

I'm from Charleston, SC and always wanted to have some video footage of my hometown! So what better way to do it! Zack & Dylon are the Pilots and they were very professional and safe in the air! Also the price they quoted me for the day was awesome and affordable. Weather your a local to Charleston or from out... More

I flew today with Dylan and could not have had a better experience, friendly, safe and flight was amazing. He said they had recently parted ways with a bad apple pilot, not sure how someone thought out of business, same location 4 years and my second time doing a tour, love the view and the pilot. Dylan is also the... More

Well I bought the 3 hour helicopter lesson groupon. It was decided between instructor and my husband they would split it into two sessions. He very much enjoyed his first session. Then scheduled a second session that we attempted to have yesterday Sunday June 16, 2013. Showed up at the terminal. No helicopter there.. My husband inquired as to where... More

The instructor seemed hurried, bored during the flight, no enthusiasm/monotone, careless about my nervousness, flew extremely rough and seemed to get a 'kick' out of making me jump out of my seat. I'm not afraid of heights but I don't like the idea of falling out of a helicopter either (no doors!!!). And to top it of this married man... More

We like to give the kids experiences rather than toys, and this experience was one of the best! A tour of Charleston from a luxury helecopter with a friendly, professional pilot, it was AWESOME! Smooth ride, unique experiences. We'd do it again. The private terminal at Charleston International Airport added an element of luxury and comfort as well.

Yet again Jay and his pilots and staff provided my family with memories that we still talk about weeks later. Pilot(Andrew) was not only safe but very knowledgeable about the local history. Our helicopter was I assume new or nearly new and still had that great new car (helicopter) smell :). They are also in a new facility that is... More

GROUPON PURCHASERS BEWARE!! I purchased a flight for my son's birthday through Groupon. Due to a new job/training circumstances beyond his control, my son was unable to reserve his flight until a few weeks before the expiry of the coupon. When we called to schedule, we were told that there was nothing available before the expiration of the Groupon because... More
