Been up to big bear at least four times in the last couple years but I’ve never really paid any attention to the helicopter tour advertisements, posted all over town. I guess I just always thought it would be way too much money.
This time, while we were up here, I happen to be thumbing through the Big Bear guide book to the Valley at the hotel and came across the ad for these tours. Pricing was super reasonable, especially for a helicopter ride, which I would think is something on everyone’s bucket list, or at least on mine anyway.
We took the Kilo tour and even though it was a fantastic tour, for me and the kids, the best part was the takeoff and landing so if I were offering anyone advice on which tour to take, I’d suggest the Romeo. Once you’re in the air, as you can imagine, you get a beautiful view of big Bear. The entire ride from takeoff to landing was super smooth.
Cash is king up here so make sure you bring cash to get their excellent discount.
The owner is the pilot and is a super experienced and a fantastic guy that really loves his job. I’m so glad that he decided to create this business so that folks like me can experience such a great activity.
