About your guide
Why Customers Love Helicopter Big Bear
This place is awesome, all the staff are very nice and professional. Our pilot is Roy and he’s well experienced, make me feel comfortable when he was taking off and landing, and even making uturn in the sky. Although our fly time is 11 minutes, it was amazing. It’s a must try for everyone, you don’t get scared because you’re in safe hands.
Had a spontaneous trip out to running springs with my gf and decided to drive out 30 mins for the helicopters. Prior to my arrival Roy was very kind over the phone and even texted me with directions and updates leading to take off. The process was very simple with only a waiver agreement to fill out and payment. We were carted to the helicopter and oriented with safety measures and even had a photo shoot of us lol we did the Juliet tour and it was amazing. 11 mins seemed as if it would’ve been short, but it was perfect and Roy was extremely kind and knowledgeable about the area and operating helicopters. Would definitely recommend to anyone for any occasion.
