Celebrate the centennial anniversary with one of Maverick Helicopters awe-inspiring offerings including:
Departing from Grand Canyon South Rim
The 45-minute helicopter experience takes guests over Kaibab National Forest, home to the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest. Upon reaching the edge of the canyon, the South Rim gently drops away as the North Rim and eastern end of the canyon come into view – one of the most spectacular views in the entire canyon. In the distance, it is possible to see the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower designed by the Hopi Indians. Travelers will view Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as they fly through the canyon. Guests will experience fabulous bird’s-eye views once on the North Rim, and then head south through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the canyon.
Departing from Henderson Executive Airport
The ultimate Grand Canyon air and land experience begins with a 40-minute airplane flight to the Grand Canyon South Rim. Once guests land, their excursion begins with a breathtaking 25-minute helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon. Soaring above this natural wonder travelers will see beautiful scenery from the Tower of Ra, Kaibab National Forest and the mighty Colorado River. The journey will conclude with transportation into the Grand Canyon National Park to enjoy the awe-inspiring vistas, panoramic overlooks and trails that can only be accessed from inside the park.
