Thanks to Maverick Helicopters, flying high in a chopper is no longer reserved for celebrities, high-profile businessmen and Bond villains. Indeed, a whirlybird flight is available to anyone on vacation in Las Vegas.

While Maverick offers a bevy of unique flights, two experiences will pique the interest of Vegas visitors. On the Vegas Strip Tour, guests hop into an ECO-star helicopter, also known as the “limousine of the sky,” and soar across the Strip, taking in all the bright lights and sights below. It’s 15 minutes of adrenaline and awe. But on the Wind Dancer tour, passengers fly to one of the world’s natural wonders, the Grand Canyon. During the flight, breathtaking views of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead appear along the journey. Then, once the destination is reached, the helicopter descends into the depths of the canyon, where guests can enjoy beautiful sights and snack on light bites.
