If you’re looking for a totally unique perspective of the Grand Canyon, Maverick Helicopters has you covered. With tours departing daily from Las Vegas, Henderson and the Grand Canyon’s South Rim, you’ll soar over the canyon’s depths or explore its interior. Maverick’s ECO-Star helicopters are equipped with wrap-around glass and theatre style seating allowing you to get an incredible view no matter which seat you’re in. These flights are perfect for photographers, or just those looking for epic views.

If you’re interested in seeing the park from the air and the ground, check out Maverick’s Canyon Dream Tour (www.maverickhelicopter.com/tour-grand-canyon-dream.aspx). Departing from Henderson (a 20-minute drive from the Strip), you’ll hop on a 40 minute airplane flight to the Grand Canyon. There, you’ll board a helicopter to experience a breathtaking 25-minute flight over the Grand Canyon’s South & North Rims before landing again to explore the park. This tour also includes a complimentary shuttle between your hotel and the airport. You’ll be back in time to enjoy Vegas’ night life after a day of otherworldly scenery.

Maverick Helicopters also offers private tours and charters to help customize your experience, including proposal and wedding packages.

Tip: While Maverick’s helicopters are reassuringly smooth, many first-time fliers still tell us that they are nervous to fly in a small aircraft. If you’re a nervous first-time flier, you may want to test the waters with their Vegas Nights Tour (www.maverickhelicopter.com/tour-lasvegas-nights.aspx). This 12-15 minute flight offers you an incredible view of the Las Vegas Strip and is a great way to see what a longer Grand Canyon flight will be like.
