Tour Description

The North Canyon with EcoStar tour features our state of the art, environmentally friendly, EcoStar EC130 Aircraft. These helicopters have been designed from the ground up with air tourism in mind and feature a nearly 180 degree field of view, all forward facing stadium raised seating, and a low-noise stable flight. The tour itself ventures through the Dragon Corridor of the Grand Canyons South Rim. It's at this point that the canyon is at its widest, deepest, and most geographically dynamic. If you have ever wondered how an eagle would see Grand Canyon, this is it!

Request A Front Seat On Your Helicopter Tour

Our "Front Seat Request" allows you to request the front seats of the aircraft you will be touring in. While every seat aboard any of our touring aircraft have a great view, the front seats offer a bit more privacy and utterly unobstructed photo opportunities.

The final seating arrangement on any helicopter is determined by an automated weight and balance calculator. The balance of weight onboard a helicopter is critical for flight safety. Since safety is our number one concern it is impossible for us to guarantee you a front seat before all guests have checked in. This is why we do not charge anything to request the seats.

If the aircraft is capable of accommodating your request then the price per seat is $50. This charge is payable when your request is confirmed after check-in. We accept most major credit cards as well as cash & travelers cheque.
