FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many people can ride?

The helicopter has 3 passenger seats. 2 person minimum, 3 person maximum. We can do back-to-back photo flights for groups larger than 3.

Can I still fly if I'm a single rider?

Yes! You just have to cover the cost of 2 seats. In some cases we can combine single riders.

Where do we meet?

Park in front of the Ryan Airfield building next to Richie's Cafe. An attendant will meet you at the walking gate to escort you to the helicopter.

Do you offer a shuttle service from our hotel?

Yes! We can pick you up for an additional $100 from anywhere in Tucson. Call or email to make arrangements.

Do I need to tip the pilot?

Gratuity is never expected, but always appreciated!

How early should I show up?

10 minutes is recommended. As we often have back-to-back flights, we cannot accommodate late arrivals.

How long is the drive from Tucson to Ryan Airfield?

About 25 minutes from the center of Tucson.

Can the helicopter doors be off?

Yes! Upon request for an additional $75. All cameras and personal items must be securely tethered to yourself.

Can I take pictures?

Yes! And you must!

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes. No flip flops or loose items.

Will I get airsick?

Very rarely do we have someone feel sick. Most find it smoother than an airplane. The pilot will keep the flight as comfortable as possible.

What if I need to reschedule or cancel?

We require at least 24 hours notice to reschedule or receive a full refund. Cancellations less than 24 hours will receive a 50% refund. Due to the fact that the helicopter is fueled precisely based on occupant weight and duration, no-shows will not be refunded.
