Frequently Asked Questions
How long are the flights? -- We'll get you into the sky for 6 to 8 minutes. Enough time to fill a roll of film with great shots of the downtown core of Toronto. Especially at 110 miles per hour and no traffic!
How Many People Can Fly? -- The helicopter can seat 3 passengers and 1 pilot.
Is There a Kids Price? -- For Safety and Regulatory reasons, every person who flies in a helicopter must wear a seat belt. This means that everyone takes up one seat regardless of age. Therefore adults and children are the same price. One seat one price.
How High Will We Fly? -- Our City Tours are always flown with a high regard for safety and community awareness. For both reasons, we fly at 2,000 feet above sea level. This helps to keep our noise level down for the local residents, and as a side benefit provides you, our customers, with a great view of the city and its surrounds.
Is It Safe? -- YES! -- Safety is our number one priority! We will never compromise on safety!
Is There an Age Limit? -- Although helicopters are not extremely noisy for adults, the noise level can cause problems for extremely young children. Another point is that children under 2 cannot wear a seat belt and have to be held by the parent. We do not feel that this provides the utmost in safety or comfort level and as a company policy we insist that passengers be over 3 years of age. There is no upper age limit. In fact we have flown customers who have crossed the century mark in age - Every one of them loved it!
Is There a Size / Weight Limit? -- All aircraft do have weight restrictions and our helicopter is no exception. The easiest way to look at it is that you must be able to put on a standard size seat belt. At the time of booking you will be asked for your weight.
Are There Any Other Restrictions? -- Besides the weight and age restrictions mention above, you must have enough mobility to be able to step up big stairs with limited assistance! If not, we still may be able to take you flying but we should discuss your individual situation prior to booking to make sure you will get the most out of the flight.
We reserve the right to refuse any one from flying with us if we feel that safety may be affected for whatever reason.
What About Weather? -- The reason for our existence is to provide fun and enjoyable flight seeing trips over and around Toronto. We can only do this if we do everything in our power to ensure your flight is as safe as possible. We require at least 6 statute miles of visibility, a cloud base of at least 2,000 feet and no falling snow.
Not only does this add to your safety, but it also helps to ensure that when you do fly with us, you will actually see far enough out the window to make it enjoyable.
What Will We See? -- There are many great things to see in (or should I say over) Toronto, and the helicopter is the best way to see them.
You will see everything from the historical to the ultra modern. Old Fort York, Spadina House, Clairmont House, Casa Loma, University of Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum, the Eaton Centre, Old and New City Halls, Maple Leaf Gardens as well as the new home of the Maple Leafs, the Air Canada Centre, the Royal York, the SkyDome, and of course the CN Tower.
Can We Take Pictures? -- We highly recommend it. The helicopter is an ideal photo platform for both video and still photography and is highly sought after by media and other professional photographers for this purpose.
