Niagara Falls Scenic Helicopter Tour
  • Niagara Falls Scenic Helicopter Tour

    It's clear why our helicopter tours are so popular among Niagara Falls attractions-they combine adventure and spectacular views for family vacation memories to last a lifetime. As the helicopter gently lifts off from our Victoria Avenue location, the awe-inspiring views of the Niagara Region begin to appear below. We wouldn't want any picture-taking opportunity to be missed so cameras should be ready to
    go right from the start!

    Beginning with the Sir Adam Beck Generating plant and the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture, the tour follows the Niagara River from the Whirlpool area (look for the Spanish Aero Car crossing the gorge), over the Whirlpool Rapids and the Rainbow Bridge. The green grass and floral beauty of Queen Victoria Park stretches below as the helicopter passes by the American Falls and the Skylon Tower. Just when it looks as if you will reach the Fallsview area, your Niagara Falls helicopter tour begins to change direction following the curve of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Rainbows appear and disappear from all directions. The helicopter levels off and continues
    along the route back to base.

    There is one thing our clients all agree on - the images you will capture on our Niagara Falls Scenic Flightseeing Tour are absolutely breathtaking but they still do not do the experience justice. Seeing the Falls from above gives you a perspective like no other. On a clear day you will see the outline of Toronto to the North and the shores of Lake Erie to the South. The path the Falls travelled over centuries is clear and awe-inspiring but watching the water travelling from Lake Erie and tumbling over the edge of the Niagara Gorge and on to Lake Ontario is nearly impossible to describe - even with a photograph. You just have to see ¡t to believe it.
    Flights depart daily from 9 a.m. until dusk, weather permitting. Duration: 12 minutes (including boarding time).

    Our fleet includes the Airbus H130 is a single engine light helicopter which seats one pilot and up to seven passengers. This modern helicopter, one of the most popular single engine helicopters in the world, started flying tours at Niagara Helicopters in June 2015. Its composite main rotor blades and enclosed tail rotor are driven by the powerful Turbomeca Arriel 2D turboshaft engine. This engine produces over 950 shaft horsepower and is capable of lifting over 5500 pounds cruises at speeds over 200 kilometres per hour. The engine is governed by a dual channel FADEC (Full Automatic Digital Engine Control), with an additional independent backup system.
    The instrument panel was designed with ease of use in mind. The Vehicle and Engine Multifunction Display (VEMD) allows the pilot to monitor helicopter systems and power requirements at a glance, thus reducing pilot workload.

    Upon boarding, passengers will notice a spacious cabin, comfortable theater-style seating, and large windows offering panoramic views. On board air conditioning keeps the cabin comfortable in all seasons, and a vibration control system ensures a smooth ride.
