Overview

Take in the Grand Canyon from the air on this 45-minute helicopter flight, and see sections you can’t access on a bus or walking tour. You’ll travel through one of the widest and deepest sections of the Grand Canyon, Dragon Corridor, and pass over two other areas, the North and South Rims. Aboard your helicopter with wraparound windows, you’ll also view Kaibab National Forest, the Colorado River, and Painted Desert.

What to Expect

Meet for this Grand Canyon helicopter tour at Grand Canyon Airport in Tusyan, Arizona. Check in, board your helicopter with wraparound windows, and get ready for a flight above the canyon.

You’ll start at the South Rim, and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of sights including Kaibab National Forest, the Colorado River, Painted Desert, Desert View Watchtower, Marble Canyon, Dragon Corridor, and Point Imperial.

Your flight also flies to the North Rim, so you can take pictures of that part of the canyon, too. This is one of the few tours that’s able to cover two rims of the canyon in such a short amount of time.

Your Grand Canyon helicopter flight ends back where it started—at the Grand Canyon Airport.

Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older will be required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

This Should be on Your Bucket List

A very professionally run tourist operation, and a wonderfully informed and expansive pilot who managed the dual tasks of successfully keeping us aloft while deciphering and answering our inane and long-winded questions. And coping with our infantile exclamations. Yes, we were excited. All of us....More

Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight

The Grand Canyon scenery was absolutely spectacular from the ground so we were expecting even better views from the helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon. However, unfortunately we were allocated middle back row seats and the views out of the windows were severely restricted. Those...More

We at Maverick Helicopters make safety our top priority and while I understand and empathize with your frustration in regards to the seating situation, we have to be very careful to properly balance the helicopter and all seating arrangements reflect that. We do feel we...More

Very disappointing experience on first ever helicopter tour.

Maverick is a pro at the helicopter tour so it feels pretty regimented. The weather had been rainy so they were not allowed to fly this route over the canyon. They offered the shorter 20 minute flight and a $30 per person refund or our...More
