We offer exceptional helicopter flights in a comfortable Robinson R44 Raven helicopter.
Does your bucket list include either a scenic air flight in a helicopter or learning how to fly one? If you said yes to either of these, or even both, you’ll love what we have to offer at High Tide Aviation. We offer both flight training and amazing tours of the Cape Fear region from a comfortable Robinson R44 helicopter.
The Robinson R44 Raven helicopter is an ideal option because it has large windows and the capability for low flying so you can take great photos. It is manufactured by the Robinson Helicopter Company in Torrance, California. The R44 is known for excellent safety and reliability, smooth handling, and superior comfort. The R44 is spacious and contains two rows of seats for up to 3 passengers.
The 2-by-2 seat configuration allows one passenger to sit up front next to the pilot, with two passengers in the rear of the helicopter. All seats are window seats and the open cabin design allows for unobstructed viewing. Headsets with two-way intercom permit open communication with your pilot. In every aspect, the R44 is ideally suited to providing comfortable, enjoyable, and safe helicopter flights.
Each of our scenic air tours can be enjoyed either in an airplane or the Robinson R44 Raven helicopter and we are also more than happy to create a custom excursion if you have something else in mind. We also offer Discovery helicopter flights where you can sit in the pilot’s seat and fly the helicopter for the first time while under the supervision of a professional flight instructor. With this option you will receive official safety training and learn the operational systems beforehand.
We also do helicopter flights for special events, such as in-air proposals, aerial photography, aerial surveying, and aerial film production. If you have any questions about our helicopter flights, give us a call at our Southport, North Carolina office.
