Discover Bend from the Air
Discover Bend, Oregon and close Central Oregon surroundings in an exciting helicopter flight.
All tours are performed with state of the art Bell and Robinson helicopters which are maintained by factory-trained technicians and flown by highly experienced commercial pilots to ensure your safety. In fact, the Bell 206 Jet Ranger has the highest safety record of any aircraft in the world.
55-60 MINUTES Best of Central Oregon
Enjoy our most popular tour! Start your Central Oregon experience with a flight following the beautiful Crooked River Gorge all the way through historic Prineville, Oregon passing over numerous turn of the century ranches including the McCall Ranch, winding up to world famous rock climbing destination Smith Rock State park, which encompasses 651 acres on the Oregon high desert plateau hovering around 3000 ft in elevation. Your journey continues flying west of the town of Redmond with an impressive view of the Cascades to your right. Finally you will see Bend from above concluding your tour flying over Pilot Butte state scenic viewpoint.
40-45 MINUTES High Cascades
See downtown Bend from above as you head towards the Cascade Mountains. Don‘t forget your camera or you will miss a chance to photograph some world class scenic views of Mt Bachelor, Broken Top and Three Sisters. Your flight will return over the Deschutes river and the Old Mill district of Bend.
25-30 MINUTES Lava Lands
Our pilots take you on a trip you will remember for years to come, flying Southwest over Bend towards Sunriver Resort. See the impressive lava lands from above, where gas-charged molten rock sprayed volcanic foam (cinders) into the air. These fell back to form many of the buttes in our region, including Lava Butte Cinder Cone. Passing over Sunriver, we will follow the Deschutes River North to overfly the impressive Benham Falls.
15 MINUTES Discover Bend
This is our shortest tour. Your pilot will take you to the most exciting spots in Bend inside and outside of the city limits. These can include but are not limited to the Old Mill District, parts of the Deschutes River, Aubrey Butte, Pilot Butte and other points of interest.
