North Canyon with EcoStar
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!
