Best Time Ever (Wind Dancer Helicopter)

Best Time Ever


My wife and I went on the Wind Dancer flight this past Monday as a present for my wife's 50th birthday and let me tell you, she and I had the best time ever. This may have very well been the coolest thing I ever did. She was afraid she would be nervous but not once did she get nervous. Our Pilot Jason was absolutely awesome and he looked to be having as much fun as us and that is really cool. Thank you very much for making my experience and my wife’s birthday a great time!

Unforgettable Day (Grand Canyon Helicopter)

Unforgettable Day


We feel extremely lucky to have had such an amazing experience flying to the Grand Canyon. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel by our friendly and knowledgeable driver Fernando, through the check-in and safety briefing at the base and most importantly the during flight, the service was first class. I would like to make a special mention to Riley Ballard our pilot for the day who was superb! Great pilot, entertaining and very knowledgeable throughout the whole tour. Riley you're a ROCKSTAR!! This day was a special day as I had the opportunity to propose to my girlfriend at the bottom of the Grand Canyon with champagne, she said "YES"! All of this would not have been possible without you all. Thanks for making it an unforgettable day.
